    Pros

    Extraordinary support from the community, diverse and colorful student body full of creative ideas and passion, a lot of great people working hard in roles from administration to maintenance.

    Cons

    Depending on your role, attitude and personality people seem to love working in BUSD or can't handle it. It can be overwhelming, especially at the high school. Over the years you'll ride ups and downs of administrator strength and level of organization and support.

    Advice to Management

    Improve hiring processes and retention efforts to ensure strong candidates are offered jobs and stay. Turnover and loss of staff talent is a big blow to the grand ideals of the district. Be open to more radical changes and dare to be a leader in the state of pushing those changes. The 21st century is here and how we teach, what's important for student learning is not found in STAR tests and other silly assessments.
