The Clark County School District Board of School Trustees is in the process of searching for the next superintendent.

The trustees are inviting the public to participate in this process by providing their input about the profile for this position in order to choose the best person. Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky is retiring on June 30, after 30 years with the district, including five years as superintendent.

In an effort to collect input from parents, students, employees and business community, the trustees will host a series of town hall meetings Jan. 23-27 in various parts of the community. The meetings will be managed by Ray & Associates, the search firm hired by the district to locate prospective candidates for the position.
