Project KNOTtT (Kansas, Nevada, Ohio and Texas Transition to Teaching) is a consortium of colleges and universities in Kansas, Nevada, Ohio and Texas. UNLV is the only Nevada institution in this consortium. Dr. Martha Young is the Program Director at UNLV for Project KNOTtT. The program offered through UNLV is based on the grant requirements to prepare 15 "high needs" teachers in English language arts, math and science through alternative routes to licensure.

  • The 15 candidates accepted in Project KNOTtT will have an option to select Teaching English as a Second Language, English language arts, mathematics or science emphases in the Masters of Education degree. Dr. Young will serve as academic advisor.
  • This degree is offered through UNLV’s Department of Curriculum & Instruction.
  • A significant portion of this program is online.
  • In collaboration with CCSD’s Alternative Routes to Licensure program (http://www.ccsd.net), a major purpose of the project is for UNLV and CCSD to jointly support all Project KNOTtT candidates.
  • You will be eligible to apply for financial aid and assistance will be provided in enrolling in UNLV.
  • A stipend of $3,000 is provided as a refund for tuition and expenses as you pursue your licensure requirements.
