Clark County School District Superintendent Jesus Jara.

The Clark County School District Board of Trustees is scheduled to meet on Wednesday to decide whether to accept Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara’s conditions and his resignation.

The Clark County School District, the fifth largest in the country, has long suffered from underfunding, understaffing and underperformance.
