LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Just days after the tenure of Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara ended, the Clark County School District has announced new leadership hires.

According to a media release, CCSD revealed “the hiring of a new Chief of Human Resources, a revision of the Region leadership team, and a restructuring of the School Choice and Innovation Network” on Tuesday. The statement noted that the moves were made “under the leadership of Interim Superintendent Dr. Brenda Larsen-Mitchell.”

The positions are expected to be filled as of March 4. The release specified that current Region 1 Superintendent RoAnn Triana will serve as the Chief of Human Resources, current Region 1 School Associate Superintendent Lindsay Tomlinson will serve as the Region 1 Superintendent, and current School Associate Superintendent Scott Walker will serve as a Region 1 School Associate Superintendent.

Dr. Jesus Jara is out as the Superintendent of the Clark County School District.

“The comprehensive schools in the School Choice and Innovation Network will transition to their geographical Regions, and the innovative work focusing on career pathways and choice options for students will continue in the College, Career, Equity, and School Choice Unit under the supervision of Dr. Mike Barton,” the district added.

“One of our most urgent needs is ensuring our students have qualified teachers in the classroom,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Brenda Larsen-Mitchell. “RoAnn Triana has been a principal at the elementary, middle, and high school levels and understands the importance of efficient systems and processes for the hiring of all District positions. Additionally, the restructuring of Region 1 leadership and principal supervisory roles will streamline critical support to our school leaders.”
