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

    Pros

    Serving students and helping them succeed in the classroom through information technology. New Superintendent of Schools Jesus Jara succeeded Pat Skorkowsky as District CEO; too soon to tell if Jara will make a difference or maintain the status quo.

    Cons

    Low wages with no raises/COLAs, poor and ineffective support staff union (ESEA-NEA), poor morale. Department heads/adminstrators take advantage of generic job titles to take advantage of employees by having people work above/beyond their classifications without fair and commensurable compensation. Training/growth opportunities are slim to none, and favortism is rampant.

    Advice to Management

    Stop standing in the way of support staff getting the new union representation that a majority of employees voted for. Start valuing your employees once again by proving step increases/COLAs, more training/paths to advancement. Don't just say that you care and appreciate support staff; prove it to them.

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

    Pros

    The Clark County School is a huge, so most of the district schools have the newest technology. It is very current on best teaching practices. He district offers multiple professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    The district is extremely assessment driven and does not always back its educators. The pay and benefits have not grown with the cost of living. At this time, educators are fighting for pay increases and the pay scale has gone through huge changes based on experience and training / professional development not in the teachers’ favor. There is a lot of red tape within the district.

    I worked at Clark County School District full-time

    Pros

    It all boils down to your school team. If you have a strong administration at your school, your experience can be great.

    Cons

    The district is so big it is bogged down by bureaucracy. I taught there for 7 years and it's taken me months and I still haven't been accepted back as a substitute.
