Nevada Consortium on the Teacher Pipeline

Consortium Members

About

Established in 2014 by the College of Education at UNLV, the Consortium was founded to facilitate dialogue and collaborative problem solving among education stakeholders and leaders in the community, with the ultimate purpose of substantively improving the number, quality, and retention of effective teachers in Southern Nevada. Consortium members include the broadest possible range of constituencies, who each work together to identify, pursue, coordinate, and engage in activities that support the Consortium's overall purpose with the following goals in mind:

  1. Engage representatives from the business, education, policy, legislative, community advocacy, philanthropic, and other constituencies in ongoing, respectful and concrete conversations about the cause, extent, and solution to persistent teacher shortages in Clark County.
  2. Provide and maintain a context in which diverse, and even competing, ideas can be shared and openly discussed in order to develop those which have most promise.
  3. Support subgroups within the Consortium as they are identified and pursue particular initiatives and courses of action, and coordinate communication and effort across distinct activities.
  4. Use the breadth of diversity and perspectives reflected by Consortium members to develop community awareness of the importance of the teacher pipeline issue and the concrete and cross-organizational initiatives intended to address it.

Nevada Teacher Workforce Report

Consortium Members

The purpose of this report is to provide a state of the field of the teacher workforce in Nevada. To that end, the project team utilized extant Title II data as well as school district vacancy data to develop a portrait of teacher candidate production and the need for teachers in the State. The current report is intended to be informative rather than evaluative, and it must be considered only the first of what we hope will become a regular series of reports on this issue.
