Clark County School Board member Kevin Kid was the subject of a problem from an outside government agency for his behavior on a school campus, spurring Superintendent Pat Skorkowsky to trespass and ban him from district residential or commercial property last month.

Skorkowsky pointed out that problem and numerous others from within the district– such as unannounced sees to schools, making remarks that embarrassed trainees, and threatening tasks of staff members who have actually complained about him– as factor for an Oct. 24 memo that essentially prevents him from stepping on school home.

“This is simply among the current grievances I have actually received about Trustee Child’s habits, regardless of my duplicated attempts to coach him about his habits around personnel and students, as well as efforts made by his colleagues on the board and our lawyers,” Skorkowsky said in the letter.

Kid stated Thursday night he thought he was trespassed as part of an effort from Skorkowsky’s office to “get payback” versus the departing superintendent’s most significant critics throughout his final months at the head of the school district. Skorkowsky, who will retire in June, vowed to work out “greater freedoms” to deal with his critics in a Sept. 7 speech announcing his retirement.

Kid, 55, has been a vocal challenger of Skorkowsky’s handling of district financial resources, which caused a budget deficit of about $80 million for the 2017-18 academic year.

“I have a no-nonsense mindset for that stuff,” Child stated, describing the budget plan.

Child stated his habits since being chosen to the school board in 2014 has actually constantly included unexpected check outs to schools, where he’ll “drop in” to provide recommendations to students. Amongst products he said might be seen as questionable consisted of a closed-eyes poll in middle school class of the number of students at one time had actually been self-destructive.

Throughout a current go to, he stated 18 of 30 trainees in a classroom had actually raised their hands to that question.

“I inform them to close their eyes and raise their hand, simply to show them that everybody wants to feel liked, which all of us have to feel loved,” he said.

Kid challenged claims that he threatened to fire district workers who grumbled about him, stating he does not have the authority to end staff member contacts.

Both Skorkowsky and Kid said the embattled trustee has disregarded the superintendent’s trespass order and continues to check out schools. Kid said that despite Skorkowsky’s cautioning to stay off campus, he’ll continue to “to be an overseer” of the district.

“I’m enthusiastic about what I do,” Child stated. “I’ve never done anything incorrect to no one.”
