    Pros

    Very dedicated to student achievement, and focus on developing the whole student, school year schedule.

    Cons

    Each school has its own culture and some are more positive than others

    Advice to Management

    Need to increase pay to Para's, they do often very difficult support work with special needs students and increase pay would reduce turnover in those positions.

    I have been working at Blue Valley Unified School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    1) I really enjoy the team I work with. 2) Casual atmosphere 3) A little bit of flex time when you need it 4) Non dramatic team

    Cons

    1) Obviously pay because this is a school district. We do receive raises (not much), but that all epends what the budget looks like. I love my team so it really helps!

    Advice to Management

    None

    I have been working at Blue Valley Unified School District full-time

    Pros

    The district has great resources and excellent parent involvement.

    I worked at Blue Valley Unified School District full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Relationships with students, changing pace every day, planning, leading, managing, and teaching different computer and business classes, working with parents and other staff for ALL students and their needs.

    Cons

    Administration and district office never backed me up over the last few years especially with the student who did mental warfare on me and defamed me to other students and another teacher and finally began threatening my life and my families' lives. They tried to bury it and put a lid on it and it just got worse and I feared for my safety and felt they did not take it serious though she's done so much to back up her threats and then she started do things when she found my sister on Google images and also my daughter. The newer administration is inept and not organized or really seeing all that goes on.

    Advice to Management

    Work together better. Treat teachers with respect and get to know them and protect them in any situation. Get organized and seriously - pull it together!
