The Clark County School Board is looking at what they are doing right and what they are doing wrong after taking self-evaluations.

Those evaluations were discussed during a school board meeting on Thursday night.

The evaluations revealed that there is a rift between board members and that it is getting in the way of process.

Trustee Linda Cavasos wrote that they need to let the district have a little more freedom, noting the difference between oversight and micromanagement.

Irene Cepeda wrote that members need to realize the board has power but not individuals.

And Trustee Lola Brooks wrote that the board needs to work together and that the district needs to figure out exactly what their powers and responsibilities are.

Chris Garvey says board members shouldn't tolerate threats or other underhanded tactics for some board members to get and Danielle Ford says the board needs to better use their powers of oversight over Superintendent Jesus Jara. But, that can only happen if they work together.
