The professional development at DISD is great and the opportunities to move up are endless if you have the right mentor and support. Compared to other districts, Dallas starting pay is very competitive.
The benefits program is horrible. I would probably do better paying my own benefits out of pocket rather than opting to partner with DISD.
Advice to Management
Reduce the cost of the benefits package; teachers already do not make the highest of salaries. Try to remember that if the teachers are happy, they will be much more productive for the students that they teach.
