    I worked at Clark County School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many opportunities for Professional Growth and Development through CCSD. During my time there, I met many talented and motivated teachers trying to do their best in a system that is largely underfunded. For such a large school district, it was easy to communicate with people in the administration and Human Resources when necessary.

    Cons

    In order to do my job, I had to supply my classes with paper, pencils, highlighters, etc. Unfortunately, this is an issue many teachers face, no matter what district employees them.

    Advice to Management

    Keep up the excellent communication with the staff. Teaching is a difficult profession and I always appreciated the positive interactions I had with other staff members.

    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are plenty of open positions to choose. The kids can be great but difficult depending on the school.

    Cons

    The school district is a bloated bureaucracy that forces staff to swim in paperwork. They cannot be trusted to follow through on pay raises.

    Advice to Management

    Work with teachers in staff in an open and honest manner. Play fewer political games and be more transparent.

    Pros

    Choosing when you work. having a choice when and where you work.

    Cons

    Management over the Substitute department talks to you like you are a special needs student, and any complaint goes against you. I doubt if he even has a degree, getting his job through connections. Staff look down on Subs like they are uneducated yet a lot of us hold advanced degrees. Many only hold Bachelor's degrees, no diversity experience, nor any other job experience. We are looked down on as being in a servitude position. There's some that appreciate us, voice and show it,and the students do too...Whenever you see a Substitute do not assume we are losers, some of us have diverse experience you may never experience in a life time. Word to the wise, did you know you can make $18 to $22 an hour teaching English to other countries? Talk 51, Viii kids, CI EE are a few names that pay this much.CCSD does pay this much unless you are a full time Sub but they also do not want their budgets messed up . (Admin).

    Advice to Management

    Whatever said will not help unless you are in the Google ole boy group.
