A school associate superintendent will be promoted to chief instructional services officer in the Clark County School District, officials announced Thursday.
Brenda Larsen-Mitchell has been tapped by Superintendent Jesus Jara to replace Greta Peay, who is retiring. Peay has worked for the district in a number of roles since 1987. She became the chief instructional services officer in August 2017.
Larsen-Mitchell will oversee a number of assistant superintendents and departments, including: assessment, accountability, research and school improvement; curriculum and professional development; educational services and school choice; English language learning; equity and diversity and student services.
The district will fill Larsen-Mitchell’s previous role as a school associate superintendent, a position created and required under the state-mandated reorganization of the school district.
