Quality Clinical Placements to Drive Positive Outcomes for Students - Clark County Public Schools

Nearly a decade ago, Clark County School District (CCSD) in Nevada began a clinical placement partnership with Progressus Therapy to help meet their growing need for quality school-based clinicians. As the 5th largest school district in the United States, CCSD faced challenges in fulfilling their staffing needs through direct hires. They needed a partner who could provide qualified, licensed clinicians to deliver educationally relevant services that drive positive outcomes for students.

Through this partnership, Progressus Therapy successfully:

  • Developed and maintained a diverse team of skilled providers, growing our team from three providers to more than thirty and establishing Progressus as CCSD’s preferred partner
  • Identified a strong clinical manager to oversee local staff and serve as part of the District leadership team
  • Integrated our team within the district team, with our clinicians seamlessly functioning as part of their staff and aligning with district goals
  • Improved retention among clinical staff in a traditionally transient geographic location
  • Implemented strategies to work collaboratively with parents and teachers
