New Teachers and Other Licensed Personnel
Welcome to the Clark County School District! We are thrilled you have chosen to either begin or continue your teaching career with us. The Employee Onboarding and Development (EOD) Department (AKA The Hive) provides specialized support to teachers that are new to Clark County School District. You’ll soon come to realize the many and varied opportunities our District (and the Las Vegas Valley) has to offer.
Beginning teachers have access to an onboarding program that is designed to support and smoothly integrate them into a new culture and environment. Experienced but new to CCSD teachers are welcome to participate, but the EOD Onboarding Program is geared toward those who are formally beginning their first year of contracted, full-time teaching. All professional learning experiences offered by EOD are designed to strengthen the knowledge and implementation of the Teacher Instructional Standards on the Nevada Educator Performance Framework. These opportunities to continue your professional growth will be available through the various professional development events offered throughout the year by curriculum and administrative staff, as well as our experienced teacher leaders. We want our new teachers to get excited about the teaching/learning process and start off on the right foot!
All new licensed employees, hired by August 2, 2017, will attend an onboarding kick-off on Wednesday, August 2, 2017 or Thursday, August 3, 2017. Classroom teachers, including specialists (e.g., art, music, physical education) will attend the Onboarding Kick-Off for New Teachers on their designated day at the Texas Station Hotel.
