Clark County school police forcibly removed a public speaker from a School Board meeting Thursday for disrupting the proceedings. Police then arrested and cited the man for refusing to leave the meeting.
Officers were called to remove Andres Mendoza, a frequent critic, after he protested loudly and ridiculed the board for its failure to consider former higher education chancellor Jim Rogers as a superintendent finalist.
School Board President Terri Janison warned Mendoza before officers intervened.
Speakers at School Board meetings are given three minutes to speak.
Mendoza, who leads a group called “No Parents Left Behind,” was escorted from the School Board chamber after three finalists to be superintendent of the Clark County School District were announced at the Greer Education Center, 2832 E. Flamingo Road.
Mendoza’s group supports Rogers as interim superintendent.
