Mission: All students progress in school and graduate prepared to succeed and contribute in a global diverse society.
I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than 3 years)
The best thing about working in the district is the students. Watching that light bulb go off or the "ah-ha" moment in their eyes is so gratifying. At the end of the day, the student are why we are even working our butts off getting paid so horribly. That smile you get from students when you walk through the building or into a classroom because these students enjoy being around someone they know actually cares and who will work with them is beyond rewarding.
There has been a pay freeze for a very long time, but they just gave a little over 1% increase. CCSD is always years behind on raises also. You are supposed to get a pay range increase after one year and then again very five years, and I got mine two years after I was supposed to receive it. I know several employees who got their 10 year pay range increase their 15th year in the district. The special education department is very over worked and under paid. The burnout rate of special education teachers is three years. The district is hurting for employees so badly that they literally hire anyone with a certificate or degree or who simply says they love children, which is not a good thing in the long run.
Advice to Management
Take care of your employee's. Stop using and abusing them and remember that people get really burnt out if they do not get to catch their breath. The district employee devote everything they have to our students and they deserve to been compensated for their hard work.
I applied through college or university. I interviewed at Clark County School District (Las Vegas, NV).
Standard interview for a teacher on the district level. Bunch of people in a waiting room waiting for their turn to interview. Interview took no more than 10 minutes.
