LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — Clark County School District says it will eliminate dean positions at the end of the school year, an idea first proposed last year that faced fierce backlash.

Supt. Dr. Jesus Jara reversed the decision shortly after it was announced, and tasked principals with the job of balancing their budgets instead -- all in an effort to make up for a $17 million budget shortfall.

But in November, the district released a statement saying in part:

When budgets open in January 2020, principals will have the option to select an Assistant Principal, Student Success Coordinator, or Student Success Instructional Facilitator. The Dean of Students position will no longer be available.
