They don't even have to interview her, either, for the job. And, believe it or not, it is entirely legal:
Davis' hire on Friday would be legal since the issue is on the agenda, but the Nevada Parent Teacher Association, Northern Nevada chamber of commerce and Grein question its prudence.
Davis has not been interviewed for the superintendent position or any other in Washoe County School District.
She came from Las Vegas' school system in 2012 when Martinez hired her as his deputy superintendent. When Martinez resigned in October, the school board unanimously promoted Davis to stand-in superintendent. It didn't interview Davis or any other candidates before making the decision.
She appears to be a competent, well-liked administrator, so she probably won't last all that long in the job if she is appointed.
