CCSD celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

CCSD celebrates Teacher Appreciation Week

The Clark County School District (CCSD) celebrates and honors our 18,000 dedicated licensed personnel. Our educators are the backbone of the District and make an impact on the lives of students which extends beyond the classroom. 

During Teacher Appreciation Week, our educators are celebrated for showing up and educating the children of Southern Nevada. We encourage everyone to take an extra moment to tell educators how special they are to the Clark County community or give them a shout-out on social media using the hashtag #TeacherAppreciationWeek.
