    Pros

    Great on-the-job experience to find out what working for CCSD as a teacher is like without being locked into a 'real teacher' contract.

    Cons

    While the 'sub pay' is pretty good as compared to taking to daily jobs and various schools; the responsibilities are no different than a 'real teacher'- with far less pay.

    Advice to Management

    Streamline a process for supporting long-term subs in becoming licensed teachers! They have already proven their abilities in the classroom and within the CCSD framework.

    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Love working with kids

    Cons

    Poor benefits, poor pay, no one at the district ever knows what is going on.

    Advice to Management

    What are you going to do to keep teachers year to year?? Every single year, CCSD pays thousands of dollars to recruit new teachers. If they treated their existing teachers better, then they wouldn’t have to worry about doing this! Hiring teachers from the Phillippeans every year is just embarrassing and shows that the district just wants seat fillers, not highly qualified teachers. With the influx of CA residents moving to the area, CCSD is the weakest link about moving here. More private schools will continue to open because of how poor the district has been managed.

    great hours, manageable caseload and working with a diverse team of teachers and special education staff

    Pros

    Very easy to get a teaching position. They need teachers, so you have some job security there. If you work in a Title I school, you can get very decent pay compared to the cost of living in Las Vegas. Depending on your school location, there can be a lot of support from staff and administrators (hence the gamble).

    Cons

    Bloated school district, lots of bureaucracy, underfunded, some school locations have awful administrators. With current financial health, CCSD employees will undoubtedly face some changes in the future, whatever they may be. Unlicensed employees (support staff, non-teachers) will probably suffer the worst from impending budget cuts, although this is speculation.

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

    Pros

    job security, holidays off, 6 weeks in summer off

    Cons

    Classes are oversized. Kids with major behavior problems, often violent, are placed in regular classrooms. Special needs kids (autism, learning disabilities) placed in regular classrooms. You get one SPED aide , not trained all that well, to work with 3+ students with significantly different issues. no budget, no texts, you have to beg for copy paper and office supplies. The biggest goal is getting kids to pass SBACs, so you teach to the test.

    Advice to Management

    Pay less to corporate and admin, put more toward curriculum, kids, and teachers. More emphasis on learning and less on passing tests. We need more funding.
