LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – The Clark County School District Board of Trustees will discuss the process for hiring a new superintendent in a meeting Wednesday.

Former superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara officially resigned in February, following a tumultuous tenure with the school district. Dr. Brenda Larsen -Mitchell was appointed as interim superintendent.
