The Clark County School District is phasing out deans, with just 45 deans remaining across all middle and high schools as of early December compared with 143 deans in May.

The phaseout began this summer, with many principals opting to cut dean positions to balance their budgets or promoting their deans to an assistant principal position, said Tam Larnerd, principal of Spring Valley High. While the shift was Superintendent Jesus Jara’s idea, secondary school principals also took part in conversations about the change, said Stephen Augspurger, the Clark County Association of School Administrators president.

“Principals agreed that the elimination of dean positions would be best,” Augspurger said.
