After a rigorous selection process, Clark County School District (CCSD) Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara has selected five School Associate Superintendents to provide direct support to schools.

The newly announced School Associate Superintendents are all current CCSD principals who have demonstrated excellence at their school and who will serve the following Regions within CCSD:

Region 1

  • Dr. James Kuzma, current principal of Rancho High School

  • Scarlett Perryman, current principal of Frank F. Garside Junior High School


Region 2

  • Barry C. Bosacker, current principal of C. P. Squires Elementary School


Region 3

  • Mikie Young, current principal of Keith C. and Karen W. Hayes Elementary School

  • Dr. Reece Oswalt, current principal of Lois and Jerry Tarkanian Middle School


Each region is led by a Region Superintendent and three School Associate Superintendents, who provide leadership and supervision to principals and use their experience and expertise to support the goals in the district’s five-year strategic plan, Focus: 2024.

“Our staff is our greatest resource in ensuring our students receive a quality education,” said Superintendent Dr. Jesus F. Jara. “These individuals demonstrate strong instructional leadership skills and have decades of experiences leading extraordinary schools. Our students will directly benefit from their talent and dedication,” he added.

Funds were redistributed from the central office to staff these positions directly supporting schools.
