    Depends on superintendent

    Pros

    Clark County has a lot of technology for schools and lots of professional development offerings.

    Cons

    The superintendent might try to cheat you out of your pay. CCSD also doesn’t pay support staff well or take care of them.

    What Did I Ever Do to Deserve This?

    Pros

    It's better than unemployment, I guess.

    Cons

    MORE! MORE! BETTER! BETTER! YOU DON'T WORK HARD ENOUGH! YOU AREN'T GOOD ENOUGH! No matter how many hours you work - and elementary teachers here routinely work 70-80-hr weeks (and it's getting closer and closer for the rest) - and no matter how good you are at actual teaching (versus running clubs or coaching or...) it is never enough and never good enough. And what's laughable is that many admin can't tell a good teacher from one who's less good. No decent union means virtually no stops on the amount of work that is dumped on you in the form of requirements - you must do this this many times per week, you must do that, you must have this paperwork weekly, etc. etc. etc. and on and on and more and more and more and more with no backing from anywhere. Many of these requirements come from admin who are dimwits. The CCSD believes in anagement by bullying and intimidation. ABUSIVE WORKING ENVIRONMENT, WHERE YOU ARE POWERLESS - STAY AWAY!

    Racist school district... If you are "ethnic," good luck!!!

    Pros

    Pro: It was extremely easy to get a job teaching in CCSD; the interview process consisted of current principals at UNLV during the last semester. Pro: I loved helping students succeed and realize their true academic potential.

    Cons

    I felt out of place outside of my classroom because many of my colleagues (and admin) refused to have anything to do with me due to my race. I was always the only 'ethnic' teacher in my department and occasionally... the school. The majority of the teachers in this district are white. The majority of the administrators in CCSD are white. Furthermore, the majority of the students who are disciplined are... Hispanic and Black (regardless of the school's demographics). The majority of teachers who are disciplined for petty findings are.. minorities. There are many cons to working for the Clark County School District... the low pay, harassing work environment, and the racist bigots who are appointed to supervising roles. If you are interested in teaching for the Clark County School District, please think twice (or thrice) if you are a minority because they will make it incredibly difficult for you to perform your job and make a difference.

    Great insight on what your children's teacher(s) goes through

    Pros

    As a substitute teacher for CCSD, it gives you great flexibility on when and where you want to work. The pay per day is variable on location of the school. It's a great way to give back to your community with your extra time during the week.

    Cons

    Substitute teachers can be reassigned at any given notice during the day to a position they may not feel comfortable with (ex. a different grade level or classroom that you may not prefer to be in). Teachers are expected to cram as much information as possible into a day for their students, which does not seem feasible and causes students to become disinterested and can cause behavioral issues in younger students. Guest teachers are expected to follow these type of lesson plans and keep the classroom under control at all times, which can be a challenge if the guest teacher does not have any past educator/classroom management experience. I have a lot more respect for our children's teachers for everything the have to deal with and put up with through our school district.

    A Very Large School District

    Dec 26, 2017 - Teacher in Las Vegas, NV
    Recommend

    Business Outlook

    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.
