(CARSON CITY, Nev.) -- Clark County School Superintendent Dwight Jones decided to step down from his position this week.
Governor Brian Sandoval issued a statement after hearing of Jones’ resignation and said, "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," Sandoval concluded.
