LAS VEGAS (KLAS) — One week after the termination of Clark County School District Superintendent, Dr. Jesus Jara, the school board held a meeting Thursday, Nov. 4 to discuss the interim role of superintendent.
Although no set plan on an interim superintendent was made at the meeting, they did discuss requiring a letter of interest and a resume for applicants applying for the role of interim superintendent.
The person selected as interim will not be allowed to seek the permanent position as superintendent.
More discussion by the board on the topic could resume in two weeks.
Last week’s meeting featured several heated moments including one trustee walking out of the meeting.
Dr. Jara recently announced 15 executive positions would get raises, some as high as $40,000.
Some teachers and staff were not happy to hear that he spent $400,000 on those raises.
“We’ve been through so much with CCSD, it’s almost like a kick when we’re already down,” said Jami Anderson a teacher for the school district.
The superintendent’s last day is December 1, 2021.
Another item on the board’s agenda at Thursday night’s meeting included the issue of redistricting.
The board decided on a new trustee redistricting map.
