    I worked at Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    Teachers are wonderful - Collaborative, flexible, intelligent, hardworking. Most of the kids are on board with the program and want to do well in school. Many families are dedicated. The school is better than your typical neighborhood urban school, but not by much.

    Cons

    Those students who are not on board never receive adequate consequences and so basically continue to do what they want. When the systems break down, the administration changes them instead of talking with the folks who are helping the system break down. Contract hours were 7am until 5pm, leaving little time for a work/life balance. The administration promises things that it never delivers on.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Pick a system and stick with it. Stop changing things every couple of months. The school needs stability.

    Pros

    Really good about approving time off and any emergencies that may occur
    Good Healthcare

    Cons

    Horrible pay, treatment, environment, bad office politics, the students/parents are ghetto and yell and all sorts of drama. The management doesn't know what they are doing and are two faced. Will fire you if they do not like you. I wasn't fired but know people that were.

    I have been working at Cesar Chavez Public Charter Schools

    Pros

    The students are great. It is one of the higher performing public charter schools in DC. Also, all the teachers are very hard working.

    Cons

    Too many changes within the year, which throws off teachers. In addition, the compensation is at least $5000 lower than DCPS salary.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    All teachers should feel like their voice matters. Administration needs to side to teachers at all times in order to establish a stronger culture.
