Elk Grove School District is a great district to serve.

Teacher (Current Employee)
Elk Grove, CA

I have been working at Elk Grove Unified School District

Pros- very professional, proactive district
- colleague competence high
- management is tolerable with many great principals
- student performance is on the rise every year
- competitive pay
- great benefits
- decent relationship between union and district
- autonomy

Cons- funds for public education are dwindling
- no one appreciates the efforts, nor realizes what it takes to be a public school teacher
- some schools have hostile administrator environments, do your homework

Advice to Senior ManagementWe need more lateral discussions/dialogue between high schools, middle schools, and elementary schools in their respective neighborhoods. These opportunities need to occur often and offer both learning credits and stipends so more stakeholders will attend.. It wouldn't be a bad idea to incorporate PTA members and local board members as regular agenda items for these meetings either.

Classified (Current Employee)
Sacramento, CA

I have been working at Elk Grove Unified School District full-time for more than 10 years

ProsI love the school I work at and the employees, parents, and students are awesome.

ConsThis district will eliminate positions and expect the remaining employees to do the job for no increased pay. No raises are possible because the superintendent mismanages the money. No room for advancement because of all of the lay-offs and unless you are willing to sell your soul and become dishonest and lose your backbone like the rest of the administrators. The "union" is horrible. They don't fight for the rights of the employees.

Advice to Senior ManagementTry not to let the position go to your head and grow a backbone.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

It has been a rewarding experience.

Substitute Teacher (Current Employee)
Elk Grove, CA

I have been working at Elk Grove Unified School District

ProsI can work when I want to. I have a wonderful supervisor appreciates me and wants me to succeed at my job. My supervisor finds me jobs when I don't have one for that day.

ConsI do not get any medical benefits as a substitute teacher. There is not any summer work. There has not been a raise in at least 10 years.

Advice to Senior ManagementThere should be some sort of benefits package and salary increase for loyal employees. I realize we are contracted, however, you will always need a handful of substitutes everyday.

Competent but limited-

Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Elk Grove Unified School District

Prosthird largest district in CA, but my dept was limited as far as vision for the future

Consfavoritism runs rampant, though has improved. used to be the good old boy network got you the job and kept you there. that has changed

Advice to Senior Managementbe visionaries, look ahead and be more proactive. use good ideas no matter the source-
don't just hide under a rock and then react when somone picks it up...and throws it.
you did a good job of keeping jobs-but the next few years are going to be scary!
