LAS VEGAS, Nev. (FOX5) – Clark County School District Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara intends to seek a buyout from his contract.
The school district released the following statement:
On Wednesday, February 7th, the CCSD Board of Trustees will consider an agenda item to end Superintendent Jara’s contract sooner than the contract’s expiration date of June 2026.
This decision is being considered due to the mutual benefit of both parties, recognizing that CCSD is in the strongest possible position to consider this transition. This is a natural transition point as the district embarks on revising our five-year plan, which is set to expire this year.
Over the last five years, Superintendent Jara and the board have sought to improve student outcomes, strengthen the district’s finances, and implement systems to support student learning.
We currently have a unique opportunity to lead the district on a path forward without disrupting the district’s stability and remaining laser-focused on student outcomes in our district.
Out of respect for the process, additional comments will not be provided at this time. The board will discuss the merit of this suggestion during the public meeting scheduled on the 7th.
The school board is set to meet again on Wednesday, Feb. 7 to discuss the termination.
The Nevada Independent was first to report on Jara’s plans.
This is a developing story. Check back for updates.
