LAS VEGAS (KSNV MyNews3.com) -- Clark County School Board members will continue their discussion on finding a new superintendent on Tuesday night.
Four hours was not enough time to accommodate the packed agenda that included whether to proceed with a national search for a superintendent or choose from a pool of local applicants.
Board members held a meeting for several hours until 10 p.m. Monday. Public comment took up about three hours as teachers and parents came forward to voice their opinions about how to find the next superintendent.
A majority of the people who spoke Monday night were in favor of hiring from within, specifically naming interim Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky.
More than 1,300 people also chimed in on 12 town hall meetings and online surveys, and a majority expressed they wanted the new superintendent to have experience at CCSD.
Others said a nationwide search will help find the best of the best but added it could also encompass local applicants.
They say hiring a search firm will ensure a fair process.
