$270K annual salary may not be enough to attract next Clark County superintendent

Mar 7, 2013 by

Clark County School Board President Carolyn Edwards called on her colleagues to re-examine the compensation package for future superintendents in light of Superintendent Dwight Jones’ sudden resignation.

To remain competitive in the market, Nevada should offer better compensation for its district leaders, Edwards said.

“It’s a difficult thing for us to do, and it’s not popular in this community,” Edwards said. “That’s frustrating because whoever comes in is going to be the superintendent of the fifth-largest school district in the nation.

“It is hard work and we should compensate our superintendent for the work that they do. It may be that we need to look at a bonus or benefit package that supplements what we (give).”

Jones abruptly announced his departure Tuesday night. Jones cited personal reasons, saying his ailing mother in Dallas needed him.
