    After over two decades at Washoe County School District (WCSD), Superintendent Dr. Kristen McNeill announced that she will be retiring from the district at the end of the 2021-22 school year. The Board of Trustees (BOT) has initiated a search for the district's next Superintendent of Schools and hired The Bryan Group (TBG), a local search firm, to lead the process.

    The search process will take several months, with the goal of selecting a new superintendent by Mid-April 2022. The new superintendent will start on July 1, 2022.

    This information is provided to keep our community informed during the process of finding the next WCSD Superintendent and to ensure that opportunities for community input are available to all stakeholders.
