LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — No word yet on just who will temporarily replace Clark County School district Superintendent Jesus Jara, but the board of trustees will be weighing in on that soon.

Trustees are set to talk about appointing an interim superintendent at Thursday’s special board meeting.

An agenda item to talk about appointing one was added Monday to that meeting which originally was just going to be focused on redistricting. There are no details yet about what this process will look like, or how it will play out.

Superintendent Jara will continue to remain on the job until the end of November as written in his contract before giving the reins to whoever is selected as the interim head. Dr. Jara will also be getting his salary and the financial worth of the benefits and allowances he’s entitled to through 2023 as compensation based on language in his contract. He earns a base salary of about $320,000 a year.
