J-1 Program Description

Since 2017, Clark County School District (CCSD) has hired teachers from the Philippines through the J-1 Cultural Exchange Program. The District focuses its hiring of J-1 candidates specifically in the high needs areas of Special Education, Elementary Education, Mathematics, and Science. Due to program limitations and rules, J-1 Visa candidates are short-term workers, and as such, CCSD must limit the total number of hires to no more than 175 teachers per school year.
