The Washoe County School District confirmed Monday it is letting go of School Police Chief Mike Mieras as part of a restructuring effort.

The Washoe County School District released this statement:

“In an effort to improve operations and support for schools in the Washoe County School District (WCSD), Superintendent Pedro Martinez has restructured a number of departments in the District. Those departments have already included English Language Learners (ELL), Special Education, the Office of School Performance, and now the WCSD School Police Department.

“Part of the restructuring effort in the School Police Department has included a change in leadership for the department. We would like to thank Mike Mieras for his years of service to the staff and students of the Washoe County School District as Chief of School Police.

“The WCSD and Mike Mieras have committed to continue discussing retirement possibilities while Mr. Mieras is on vacation.”
