    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    affordable place to live being that the pay is so low

    Cons

    very hard for step increases in pay, can take upwards for 5 years of teaching just to get a raise, and even then, teaching is still the toughest profession out there. Working 40 contracted hours a week but constantly taking work home with you and working upwards of 60 hours a week. It's exhausting.

    Advice to Management

    Pay your teachers more! Fund our schools! Give kids the education they deserve and stop being so corrupt, it's only making our district worse.

    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    The CCSD is working toward getting better funding and reducing class sizes in the future. There is lots of growth and oportunities for advancement.

    Cons

    Budgets have been a challenge, and we have among the highest class sizes in the country. Leadership varies greatly in quality throughout the district, so your at risk of getting a really bad principal or a great one.

    Advice to Management

    Support teachers with quality coaching and consider the work load when deciding on schedules, meetings, etc... Does your new program really make a difference and do you properly support it and your teachers.

    Pros

    benefits are awesome when the union isn't arguing with anyone

    Cons

    Good 'ol Boys club...still. Unless you know someone in central office expect to be in the classroom.
    Pay incentive CU program is a complete joke and limits professional growth (not the PD offered) but trying to move up in education.

    Advice to Management

    LISTEN TO YOUR TEACHERS

    I worked at Clark County School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Pay is decent, benefits are okay, PERS retirement vesting after 5 years

    Cons

    Lack of administrative support for teachers who really want to make a difference by not doing the same old same old. Administrators with 3 years in the classroom make self serving decisions for classroom policies and curriculum standards. Lack of support for the central office efforts to educate and support teacher growth.

    Advice to Management

    Start over! Go back to the basics for teachers and students. Remember who you are really serving...the kids who so desperately want to learn and the teachers who are working hard to help the kids. Support the teachers, praise them, coach them, don't degrade them and stop supporting small elements of parents/students who want to criticize anything they don't like.

    Pros

    Decent pay, paid holidays

    Cons

    Upper management could care less about their employees, in almost 3 years I never even saw the director of my depeartment. Way top heavy district wide in management. Only working 9 months. Frequent schedule changes and management dose not care about your afterwork life, you can get off hours later, causes problems when you have to worry about childcare

    Advice to Management

    Take time to listen to the employees, and be open minded about their suggestions.
