When the Nevada Legislature required the Clark County School District (CCSD) to “reorganize” its operations and bring new accountability and more decision making to each individual school, CCSD principals and associate superintendents were faced with many new responsibilities and challenges.

When the Nevada Legislature required the Clark County School District (CCSD) to “reorganize” its operations and bring new accountability and more decision making to each individual school, CCSD principals and associate superintendents were faced with many new responsibilities and challenges.

While these leaders were extremely well-versed in curriculum, supervision and instructional decisions, the cultural changes required by the reorganization and new budgetary decisions were somewhat less familiar.

The Executive Partner Program was created to assist district leaders in this transition.

Bank of Nevada CEO John Guedry and others in the business community created the Executive Partner Program to provide Southern Nevada CEOs as a resource to CCSD associate superintendents and principals. Through in-person meetings and regular phone calls, CEOs can discuss their own experience handling culture change within an organization, how they’ve handled specific budgetary challenges, and how they’ve incorporated employee, staff and public input within their decision-making process.

More than 65 of over 135 Southern Nevada CEOs have been paired with a principal or associate superintendent as part to the idea sharing program.
