Governor Brian Sandoval today announced the departure of Chief Strategy Officer Dale Erquiaga. Erquiaga has accepted the position of President and Chief Executive Officer for Community in Schools (CIS), the nation’s largest school dropout prevention organization.

“Throughout my administration, Dale has been a close friend and one of my top advisors. While serving as State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Dale was the architect of the signature education achievements we passed during the 78th legislative session and helped guide them through the legislative process,” said Governor Brian Sandoval. “While I will miss Dale, I know that his new role will allow him to help more underprivileged and at-risk students and I am incredibly proud of him for taking on a new challenge and debuting his talent on a national stage. Nevada will be a better state because of the work that Dale has done.”
