LAS VEGAS (KSNV -- Time is running out to weigh in on the superintendent search process for the Clark County School District.

For weeks, the School Board has turned to the public for input after it postponed moving forward with a nationwide search.

That decision was made amid some community pressure to keep interim superintendent Pat Skorkowsky in the position permanently.

Recognizing one of the district’s teachers is just one of the many duties Skorkowsky fulfills as interim superintendent, and falls under one of four priorities he sees for the district.

“One (priority) is continue to work; second is support our teachers through class size reduction and working with them with fair and equitable evaluation system,” he said. “And parent engagement is a priority they are involved, and our last is our second language programs.”

Until the School Board decides whether to pursue a national search, all potential superintendent applicants are encouraged to wait to declare their candidacy.

While one School Board member had recently endorsed Skorkowsky for the position, Elaine Wynn on Wednesday called on the board members to conduct a nationwide search, although she said local candidates should not be ruled out.

The input so far from families through 1,200 online surveys and 10 town hall meetings is mixed.

The School Board meets again May 20.
