The Clark County School District is giving previously-rejected teaching applicants a second chance at a job. It was recently announced that CCSD was reaching out to people who had in the past been rejected for various teaching positions. The 2022-2023 school year is a mere weeks away and the district is scrounging to get positions filled. According to Fox 5 News in Las Vegas, the CCSD hiring staff is making outbound calls to previously rejected applicants, asking them to reapply. Fox 5 reports that the Clark County School District currently has almost 1500 open positions for teachers. They say some highly-qualified applicants were rejected formerly for substitute positions, some without any explanation. According to Fox 5, many of the rejected applicants held a license to substitute teach in Nevada, but still were turned down as possible hires. Some for no reason other than a reference not returning a call. Well, now the tables have turned, as CCSD is hoping those applicants will resubmit.

The fact of the matter is that CCSD might be getting a little more desperate than some realize. CCSD‘s Media Relations Office told Fox 5 last week that they’ve changed the requirements for potential substitutes. Before June, substitute applicants had to have a substitute teaching license in Nevada to even be considered. Now that’s not the case. Now the requirement is a background check and high school diploma. Some parents in the Clark County School District are not happy about this change and worry about who their kids might be left in the hands of. It is important to note, however, that while applicants no longer have to be holding a license at time of applying, they do have to be in the process of getting their license.

If you are interested in applying to be a substitute teacher in Nevada, it looks like there might be a lot of work potentially coming your way.

The Best Las Vegas High Schools Ranked 2022

One of the most important takeaways from education is that it helps individuals develop critical thinking skills. Personal growth comes from learning which intake helps with gaining more confidence, financial wealth and literary skills.

Nevada is an ever-growing city with a population of just over three million. More people are moving to Las Vegas to give their families a better life. With the American dream in mind, where does education fit into the equation? Education is important to families who want to offer the best for their children and generations to come.

EdWeek.org conducted a comprehensive analysis to find out where states rank in educational opportunities and performance. Their data was configured over three categories which included Chance for Success (January), School Finance (June) and K-12 Achievement (September). The overall grade is the average of the three separate scores.

Nevada finished 50 amongst all 50 states and the District of Columbia. The state scoring earned 68.6 out of 100 possible points. That is the equivalent of a D plus grade average. The country ranked at a C grade average. Find out more about their education research within each category.

Let’s be honest, Nevada does not have a great education system ranking but that does not mean that all Vegas schools are bad. Vegas has the 5 largest school district in the United States with the Los Angeles Unified School District taking first place.

GreatSchools.org is a leading non-profit when it comes to research insights and parenting resources. The non-profit gives an insight on “school quality” based on a rating from one to 10. Top-rated schools are considered 10’s. Ratings between one to four are looked at as below average. Ratings between five to six indicate average. Ratings seven to 10 are considered above average.

Let’s see how Vegas high schools, public and private, are ranked from 10 to one.
