Clark County School District (CCSD) Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara announced Wednesday, Jan. 16, that he has made selections for two of the available three newly created region superintendent positions.

Selections were made after a rigorous process, according to a CCSD release, and the positions will oversee geographic regions of the school district.

The new region superintendents are Mrs. Debbie Brocket and Mr. Grant Hanevold.

Brockett is the current franchise principal of Las Vegas High School and Duane D. Keller Middle School.

Hanevold is the current School Associate Superintendent who also has significant experience as a principal.

“The region superintendent positions are critical to accelerate the student achievement goals in our draft strategic plan,” Jara said. “The final region superintendent position will be filled once we identify the candidate who will be able to lead our schools to meet the goals of the strategic plan.”

These news positions were created as part of a reorganization aimed at cutting central service costs and ensuring consistent support to all of the district’s 360 schools.

Jara has also advertised nationally for the Chief Operating Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer positions.

This comes in light of a recent report from the Council of the Great City Schools, which can be viewed here.

“Our kids only have one shot at school, and this report makes it clear that we must move quickly to ensure that all levels of the district are directly supporting student achievement,” Jara said. “I would like to thank the leaders in these positions who have dedicated years of service to the students of the Clark County School District.”

Contracts for the current employees in these positions expire June 30.
