I have been working at Alum Rock Union Elementary School District
Pros – The hours are great to have a balanced life
Cons – compensation is low
organization is NOT where it needs to be
Advice to Senior Management – Help the students in this district by giving them excellent teachers and a quality education-not sub-par education and teachers

I worked at Alum Rock Union Elementary School District full-time for more than a year
Pros – The kids and their families; starting salary higher than most other places in the Bay; (mostly) caring teachers and staff
Cons – Took 2 years to negotiate a 1-year contract; 1st and 2nd year teachers laid off (excessed/non-re-elected) every year due to budget constraints since charters are moving in, yet some district personnel making lots of bank for reasons unbeknownst to me; admin did not want sped students mainstreamed; some schools get more funding than others (e.g. iPads for a new school); some schools do not teach science and social studies for their test scores
Advice to Senior Management – Please think about what's best for the kids in every decision
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
