Exciting News: The PGS Is Moving Forward!

As a result of the favorable outcome of the PGS Unfair Labor Practice, CCEA and CCSD have worked collaboratively to produce the October 16, 2017 Final and Approved version of the PGS Guide. This guide will replace all previous versions. Please note what has been reverted in place and how the MOOCs have changed:

This following has been put back in place as a result of the Unfair Labor Practice win:

  • Page 1: Special education teachers serving in a self-contained classroom are on the two-year track and CU options for column movement
  • Page 10: College Coursework from the Approved Universities list by the Nevada Department of Education (NDOE) has been put back to 8 CUs per semester credit. However, note there is a link instead of a list of schools, as the NDOE may add or remove schools on the list
  • Page 10: College Coursework from Universities classified by the Carnegie Classification of Higher Education as Doctoral Universities of Higher Research Activity or Highest Research Activity have been put back to 8 CUs per semester credit

Pursuant to the EMRB decision, CCEA and CCSD have reached the following agreement on the MOOCs moving forward:

MOOCs completed prior to August 21, 2017

  • 1 CU for each 180 minute (3 hour) time period for MOOCs completed before August 21, 2017
  • No maximum if completed by August 21, 2017

MOOCs completed after August 21, 2017 (Note: values and max have been changed)

  • 1 CU for each 600 minute (10 hour) time period for MOOCs completed after August 21, 2017
  • Maximum 40 CUs for MOOCs completed after August 21, 2017
  • If the maximum number of CUs (40) was accrued prior to August 21, 2017, additional CUs may not be accrued through completion of the current salary cycle
  • If you have completed all 225 or more CUs prior to August 21, 2017, they will be honored if they meet the “related to” and other requirements noted in the Description and Limitations section under MOOCs professional growth goals, and must be active, not archived, at the time of completion. Changes only affect MOOCs completed after August 21, 2017
