If the classroom is your calling, the Clark County School District (CCSD) Accelerated Licensure Teacher Academy (ALTA) offers unique opportunities for individuals seeking a rewarding career teaching students in high-need areas. CCSD welcomes strong, diverse candidates with rich life experiences, conferred bachelor's degrees in area other than education, and a passion for helping all students succeed.
Since 2014, our state approved Alternative Routes to Licensure (ARL) pathway to teacher licensure has helped break down barriers for aspiring teachers - offering them affordable, in-depth, practice-based training that prepares them for CCSD classrooms.
Candidates accepted into an ALTA cohort participate in a semester of rigorous professional development and school-based experience while receiving personalized coaching. Upon successful completion, candidates become eligible to apply for full-time employment as contracted CCSD teachers. Once employed at a CCSD public school, ALTA teachers must satisfy remaining Nevada Department of Education requirements for full licensure within three years.
