Teach in Clark County

Nevada's largest school district.

Teach in CCSD

Clark County is the fifth largest school district in the country and is comprised of 358 schools with more than 42,000 employees. CCSD is also the largest employer in the state, so there are many jobs available year-round.

How it Works

  • Enroll in the Nevada Teachers of Tomorrow program
  • Pass state required testing
  • Complete Nevada Teachers Classroom Readiness online training modules
  • Submit principal reference
  • Teach for four academic semesters with full pay and benefits under a Conditional License
  • Receive your Standard Teaching License

Clark County Specifics

Clark County requires that all licensed teachers have some classroom experience in conjunction with a Principal reference. There are two ways to satisfy this requirement.

Previous Classroom Experience

If you have worked as a teacher, aide, substitute teacher or paraprofessional, in any state, and can obtain a principal reference from that school, on your behalf, that reference will suffice as the necessary classroom experience required by CCSD.


Substitute Teaching

If you have no prior classroom experience, you can apply to become a substitute with Clark County School District. Substitute teaching will give you helpful insight when you’re ready to teach in your own classroom. Working as a substitute teacher in that district will also help you get your foot in the door and most often these turn into full time teacher positions. Make sure you have completed some of your Nevada Teachers classroom readiness training modules before you begin your substituting position. Those modules will give you a foundation of knowledge to help you be successful.

  • All substitutes must have a substitute license from the Nevada Department of Education. Fill out this form and submit to the DOE.
  • Set up your CCSD substitute account on their online portal
  • Search and apply for substitute positions online
  • Complete all required interview steps to earn the position

-In order for the principal to be comfortable referring you the average length of time for a new substitute to obtain a principal reference is around 10-15 days, but has been shorter in some instances.
