    Pros

    -Mostly great staff members, competent teachers.
    -Special education services are generally better than surrounding districts.
    -Benefits and school calendar.

    Cons

    -Administration has had lots of turn over lately.
    -Disorganization at the administrative level filters down to others, making everyday work duties more tedious than they should be.

    Advice to Management

    Hire more middle management and eliminate the top-heavy management approach with all high-level administrators who don't have time to manage all of their duties.

    Application

    I applied through a staffing agency. The process took 3 daysinterviewed at Oakland Unified School District (Oakland, CA).

    Interview

    First there was a lesson sample in a group and a bunch of review questions about the lesson with one individual interviewer. Like many teaching interviews, they are much more concerned with your review of your lesson than the actual lesson itself. Later there were a few questions with the spec. ed. coordinator.
