LAS VEGAS (FOX5) -- In a memo to the Clark County School District board of trustees, ousted Superintendent Dr. Jesus Jara outlined substantial salary increases for members of his executive cabinet.

The proposed increases, to the tune of $400,000, would take effect beginning Dec. 1.

In part, the memo read:

"Early in 2021, I informed the Board of School Trustees of the need to review and revise the compensation structure for Executive Cabinet members. In August 2021, the Board of School Trustees approved Regulation 4291 providing the Superintendent with the authority to adjust salaries for "At Will" employees.

Jara said his staff reviewed national averages for "comparable positions" before making adjustments to current salaries for some 14 executive positions within the school district.

The board voted 4-3 last week to terminate Jara's contract.

Take a look at the full memo below.

Board President Linda Cavazos said the following on Twitter:
