Kristen McNeill has been named the next superintendent of the Washoe County School District.
The board of trustees voted 6-1 on Tuesday to promote McNeill to the position. She has been serving as the interim for just under a year.
McNeill replaces Traci Davis after the school board ousted her in July 2019.
McNeill has been with district for more than 20 years.
Most recently she was appointed deputy superintendent in 2015.
She also served as the district's director of State and Federal Programs/K-16 initiatives and chief strategies officer.
The board and legal counsel have yet to work out specifics of her contract.
