Clark County School District Chief Financial Officer Jeff Weiler is leaving to accept a position in Virginia.

Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky disclosed Weiler’s resignation today in a statement.

“I am saddened to announce that Clark County School District (CCSD) Chief Financial Officer Jeff Weiler has been offered a position in Virginia, closer to his family,” Skorkowsky said. “Over the past seven years, Jeff has guided us through very difficult financial times. He helped oversee our $2.1 billion budget, our operations units, and the management of the $4.9 billion capital campaign passed by voters in 1998. We have benefited from Jeff's skill, integrity and expertise. We wish him the very best."

The news came about two weeks after Skorkowsky announced a reorganization of his administrative staff, but Wieler was not affected by the move and still reported directly to the superintendent. Skorkowsky was appointed superintendent in late May.

Weiler’s last day with the School District will be Sept. 10. An interim CFO will be determined before the Sept. 4 School Board work session, said Kirsten Searer, spokeswoman for the district.

Weiler is the second high-ranking employee to resign from the School District in the past two weeks. District spokeswoman Amanda Fulkerson announced on Aug. 7 she would file her resignation to the School Board on Aug. 22.
