sandovallogo-300x91-1610337-9548219CARSON CITY Governor Brian Sandoval today made the following statement after learning of Clark County School Superintendent Dwight Jones’ decision to step down:

“I spoke to Superintendent Jones last evening and conveyed my understanding and respect for his decision to step down and spend more time with his family.  Dwight has been a reformer, a partner and a friend and while I am sad to see him leave the Clark County School District, there is nothing nobler than putting one’s family ahead of one’s career.

“Under Dwight’s leadership, graduation rates in Clark County rose, test scores improved and the district took steps toward more transparency and better accountability.  I am confident that the school district will continue to improve the delivery of education for our state’s children and I wish Dwight and his family the very best.”
