    I worked at Clark County School District full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Student population is in desperate need of more passionate and anti-racist educators looking to make a positive impact. CCSD does offer recruitment and retention bonuses and there are other financial incentives for working at certain schools (title 1, zoom, etc).

    Cons

    The district is very disorganized. CCSD is the 5th largest in the nation and lacks the staff and organization to function properly. Its very difficult to get information and district staff are too busy to properly help everyone. School politics matter more than education because of how little money the districts gets from the state. There are frequent conflicts between the union and the district to get fair pay, benefits, and step raises for teachers.

    Individual administrators make the work environment positive and successful.

    Being in the schools, you can make a difference with students. Your job is still student focused.

    The district is too large. Recent changes to the payroll system, HR system and other elements have had glitches and complications and exemplifies what is wrong at CCSD.

    I have been working at Clark County School District full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    It’s a job but it’ll cost you your sanity

    Cons

    1. Teach Common Core Standards with no resources, no books, nothing. Everything you will need to teach, you have to purchase. $$$ 2. Inept administrators with attitudes. Red Flag—strong admin union. Elementary principals pulling in 110k, Elementary APs 87-90k. Pedagogy outdated, bullying, parents first; teachers last. 3. Short school day. Shove 10lbs of garbage into a 5lb bag. If you enjoy a fast pace racing through the curriculum with no mastery with 36 students in a class, have fun. 4. If you are used to teaching and running your classroom, you will not like CCSD. Administration micromanages everything. 5. Elementary = no support staff except Title 1. No coaches to assist. 6. If you’ve been teaching 15-20 years, do NOT teach anywhere in NV. You will destroy your Social Security if you take a pension from here. If you are new to CCSD and from a state that had Soc Sec with at least 15 years in, make this your last year and go to another state or back to the one you came from. Seriously. You’re gonna need the Soc Sec to help with retirement if you can retire. 7. Gets too hot in summer and too cold in winter. The wind is powerful (30-50 mph) terrible dust, and allergies. You’ll be miserable if you have allergies. Adds insult to injury. 8. Superintendent did not support teachers for pay raises. Jara did not stand with teachers. He threatened consequences, whereas, the other states like WV, OK, AR, WA, CO (all right to work states) had the backing and support of the superintendent. 9. There’s a reason there’s so many jobs available. 10. The pay scale is a crazy system to move over a column. It takes a lot of work 3-4 years and you probably won’t get the raise anyway. You’re wasting your time in this district. It takes a lot of credits and a lot of work on your own time to maybe get a raise if you can get it all done. You’ll be too exhausted to work 16 hours a day. The pay scale is a trick. Literally there were only approximately 500 teachers out of thousands that qualified for a pay raise and that was after threatening to strike: Pitiful.
