With an impending teacher shortage for the upcoming school year in the Clark County School District, UNLV is offering an opportunity to solve this problem with its fast track program called Rebel Academy.
Rebel Academy will shortly be finishing its 4th annual four-week session. This will enable 14 new teachers to enter CCSD this fall. They will be able to teach many different subjects at the middle and high school level. While this amount seems small in comparison to the expected shortage of 800 teachers this fall, it’s a step in the right direction.
