The Clark County School District has hired a firm to help in its search for a new superintendent.

The Clark County Board of School Trustees on Tuesday hired McPherson and Jacobson of Omaha, Neb. The firm was chosen from three search firm finalists at the end of a special board meeting.

Clark County schools Superintendent Dr. Walt Rulffes is retiring in August, but has offered to extend his tenure for a few months, if necessary, while the board searches for his replacement.

Rulffes announced in March that he would not be renewing his contracting. He became superintendent on an interim basis in 2005 and won the job permanently in 2006.

The Clark County School District is the nation's fifth-largest.
