Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Clark County School District Superintendent Dwight Jones will step down from his position later this month.
Superintendent Jones announced his departure on Tuesday, citing a family illness as his reason for leaving. A spokesperson for the school district said Superintendent Jones will serve until Friday, March 22.
"I thank the people of Clark County for their trust and support," said Superintendent Jones in a news release. "I am honored to be a part of this hard and worthwhile work. I am leaving because I'm presented with a decision that I'll never have the opportunity to make again - to spend time caring for my mother."
Jones was named superintendent in September 2010 and officially began serving the role in December 2010. The School Board of Trustees will hold a meeting to discuss a transition plan. In the meantime, the deputy superintendent will serve as acting superintendent.
