Trustees oust Las Vegas schools chief amid district turmoil

 

November 2, 2021



LAS VEGAS (AP) — Elected leaders of the fifth-largest school district in the nation fired their chief administrator of Las Vegas-area schools late Thursday during a marathon meeting following weeks of infighting and anger from parents and teachers over coronavirus pandemic regulations.

Clark County School District trustees didn’t specify a reason for their 4-3 vote to end Superintendent Jesus Jara’s contract “for convenience.”

Jara, who was hired in 2018 and received a contract extension last May, moved his face mask aside and offered parting words that alluded to behind-the-scenes conflict with the seven-member board, then got up and left.
