Clark County School District’s (CCSD) current Chief of Staff, Dr. Christopher Bernier, has been selected as superintendent for The School District of Lee County in Florida

“As our Chief of Staff, Dr. Bernier dedicated himself to ensuring students of the Clark County School District receive a high-quality education,” said CCSD Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “We will miss him and his commitment to this community and the expertise he provided. I am confident that the students of Lee County will benefit tremendously from his wealth of knowledge, educational expertise, and quality leadership skills.”

Dr. Christopher Bernier has served as the Chief of Staff for CCSD since July 2019.

From classroom teacher to assistant principal and principal at multiple schools he ultimately worked his way up to become Associate Superintendent at OCPS.

Dr. Bernier will begin contract negotiations and determine his start date with the Lee County Public School District.

A search will begin for a new chief of staff for CCSD.
