Dallas Superintendent Michael Hinojosa was passed over for Las Vegas-area district post, and he will likely accept a contract extension offered by Dallas school trustees last week.

Hinojosa's challenger, Colorado education commissioner Dwight D. Jones, won with a 6-1 vote from the Clark County School District trustees on Wednesday night.

Hinojosa has been the Dallas superintendent for 5 years, and he says he did not seek out the position.
