    Pros

    When I needed to take FMLA, it was made doable. The benefits are good. My coworkers are very helpful.

    Cons

    After a work injury, I had to go to therapy but I had to use my sick leave for it. Being penalized for not knowing all the aspects of the job because you started after every one else.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Even when someone starts after the official beginning of the year, full orientation still needs to be provided.

    Pros

    Decent set hours, the kids are really sweet, and not nearly as hard as I expected it to be.

    Cons

    Too many chiefs and not enough Indians! I seriously think that everyone else thinks they are my boss or something! Plus there is some disrespect by some employees to the manager for no real reason!

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Tell other workers that they aren't the boss and you are and things will go more smoothly!

    Not many pro's. It's conveniently close to the airport and Atlanta

    Fire the entire HR department. They don't understand how to attract and retain quality teachers

    Current Employee - Itinerant Special Ed Teacher  in  Jonesboro, GA
    Current Employee - Itinerant Special Ed Teacher in Jonesboro, GA

    Pros

    CCPS seems to provide lots of support to new (and new to the County) teachers compared to other counties where I have worked. Someone always seems willing to take the time to explain the procedures for dealing with paperwork, learning the IEP software, etc. Class sizes and caseloads are manageable. The faculty and staff seem to go out of their way to ensure that they know you on a personal level.

    Cons

    Special Ed. teachers are often required to attend trainings that do not affect them and many times the faculty is unsure of what to do with the Special Ed. teachers when it comes to new procedures being implemented in the County.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    There are many people with titles within a school (e.g., Special Ed. Teachers, Related Service Providers, a DES Chair Person, a Compliance Specialist, a Testing Coordinator, along with the usual hierarchy of department chairs, counselors, and administrators. It would be helpful to receive a flow chart with each person's title and his or her responsibilities so that time is not wasted hunting down the appropriate person for a specific task.
