CARSON CITY, Nev. — Gov. Brian Sandoval and the State Board of Education have appointed their respective liaisons to assist in the search for the next Nevada superintendent of public instruction.
Sandoval on Thursday named Terri Janison, who serves as his director of community relations and is former president of the Clark County School Board.
The State Board of Education appointed Chris Wallace, a board member from Henderson. Annie Wilson, who serves on the board and is from Las Vegas, will serve as alternate.
Education reforms pushed by Sandoval and approved by the 2011 Legislature give the governor new authority to appoint the state schools superintendent.
Candidates must hold a master's degree in education or school administration.
Sandoval says he also wants someone with experience in the classroom and with budgeting.
