The Clark County School Board has a new vice president and clerk.
The School Board unanimously appointed Clerk Deanna Wright to become vice president on Thursday. Wright will serve out the remainder of 2013.
The position was vacated last month when Vice President Lorraine Alderman announced her resignation, citing new opportunities.
Because Wright vacated her clerk position, the School Board unanimously appointed member Erin Cranor to become clerk. She will serve out the remainder of 2013.
The School District is still collecting applications to fill Alderman’s position. The longtime Clark County School District administrator had represented District D, which encompasses the central Las Vegas Valley and represents nearly 49,000 students feeding into Clark, Desert Pines, Rancho, Silverado and Valley high schools.
The application deadline closes Monday, Nov. 18, at 4 p.m. Applicants must be a registered voter in District D and have resided in District D for at least 30 days.
The School District is expected to release candidates for Alderman’s replacement next week. State School Board member Stavan Corbett said he intends to apply.
The School Board will interview applicants at its regular meeting at 1 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 5,
