CARSON CITY (KSNV MyNews3) -- Losing its leader in the middle of a legislative session certainly doesn't help the Clark County School District's case for more money in Carson City.

Things were looking up for the School District in the capital. Gov. Brian Sandoval pledged $135 million more to education, and there has been no shortage of ideas from lawmakers on how to fund Nevada schools.

Senate Education Chairwoman Joyce Woodhouse, who has been part of CCSD since 1966, says losing Superintendent Dwight Jones is devastating.

Associate Superintendent Joyce Haldeman is in Carson City to lobby for the district’s wish list, which is long and expensive: a new funding formula, smaller class sizes and full-day kindergarten. Without Jones out front, Haldeman knows it makes getting what they want harder.

Lawmakers insist while they'll miss Jones' leadership, the mission won't falter.

PAHOA, HAWAII - OCTOBER 26:  In this handout provided by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS), A portion of the front of the June 27th lava flow burns through thick vegetation and a fence on October 26, 2014 in Pahoa, Hawaii. Scientists of the Hawaiian Volcano Observatory conducted ground and air observations of the lava flow from the Kilauea Volcano and determined that it was 510 meters (560 yards) upslope from Pa-hoa Village Road and the flow width was about 50 meters (55 yards) at the leading edge. Molten rock from the flow is inching its way towards homes in the town of Pahoa on Hawaii's Big Island where close to a thousand people live.  (Photo by USGS via Getty Images) (Handout, 2014 USGS)
