LAS VEGAS (AP) - The Nevada state attorney general's office has received a complaint claiming Clark County school trustees violated open meetings laws when they picked a longtime district administrator as superintendent of the Las Vegas-area school district
The Las Vegas Sun reports that Michael Bluestein informed the Clark County school board on Thursday that he filed a complaint because he doesn't believe there was proper public notice about the selection.
Pat Skorkowsky was picked Tuesday on a 6-1 board vote for a four-year, $250,000-a-year contract to head the nation's fifth-largest school district.
The board has scheduled a special June 3 meeting to firm up Skorkowsky's contract.
The Clark County School District has about 310,000 students and 18,000 teachers at more than 350 campuses.
The previous superintendent, Dwight Jones, resigned in March.
