Jones iszsued this statement Thursday morning, I sincerely appreciate this opportunity to work with Clark County School District to improve student achievement. I am humbled by the choice, knowing that the board had another outstanding candidate. It is clear to me that Clark County wants what we all want-to ensure that all children have access to inspiring learning environments that set high standards and successfully prepare all students for college or careers. I look forward with enthusiasm to working with the educators, school staff and community in Clark County and I will make the transition to Nevada as soon as I can ensure a smooth exit from Colorado. I am keenly excited about the work and challenges ahead."
