Every student in every classroom, without exceptions, without excuses.


Superintendent Pat Skorkowsy

For the past 25 years, Pat Skorkowsky has served the students, parents, and community of Clark County in every possible role – a teacher, a principal, a central office administrator, and now, as superintendent.

Pat started his career as a first-grade teacher at C.C. Ronnow Elementary School in 1988, and it was in the classroom where he developed the teaching philosophy that today drives the nation’s fifth-largest school district: “Every student in every classroom, without exceptions, without excuses.”

Since he began his tenure as Superintendent in June 2013, Pat has outlined an ambitious and aggressive agenda to improve academic outcomes for every student in the District. He has six focus areas: student achievement, people, results, opportunity, innovations, and the community. His vision is to better engage parents, focus on achievement gaps in the District’s student population, and provide more effective feedback and professional development to the District’s 18,000 teachers.
