The Nevada Association of School Boards accommodation company recently completed a community survey gathering feedback from district employees and families during the first round of interviews with six applicants in late January.

The meeting will resume at the regular board meeting at 7 p.m. that evening with general public comment periods as generally permitted to be scheduled.
Initially, a 15-minute presentation was offered, but administrator Mike Walker said that since the board is hiring a community leader, it was important to give candidates more time to talk about who they are and be open about their view.
“One of the things I didn’t like about First Step was that we didn’t understand who they are or their teaching philosophy,” Walker said. “So that way we get an idea of ​​who people are. They can come in and tell us who they are.
The motion was approved 6-0, with trustee Stacie Wilke-McCulloch abstaining.
