I have to agree with Dave Mesker in his letter, “Look in-house for superintendent.” Why do we have to waste money looking for someone outside of our state? Do we not have anyone qualified who knows the workings of our school system and what the needs are? The School District should rethink this search and look in-house!

  1. The choice is for the best candidate as Super. Not just in the school district but in the country.
    I have no doubt there are good candidates in Clark County. But are they the best candidates? That's the question that needs to be answered and the reason for an outside candidate.

    Now is the time to consider breaking up the Clark County School District into two or more districts. Then it's feasible to promote Supers from within, smaller to larger districts. And easier and quicker to implement school based reforms where they are needed and apply.

  2. I agree with Carmine (again). Gasp! Now I'm really worried! :-)
