Working for ACPS

Teacher (Current Employee) Alexandria, VA

ProsGood kids and great co-workers.

ConsSuperintendent not in touch with needs of community. Very self-serving individual who desires limelight. Salary is more than Governor of VA and Vice President of US. Is very arrogant and desires to do things only his way regardless of the failures which have occurred in city schools. Two middle schools were divided into 5 schools and everyone has experienced this failure.

Advice to Senior ManagementNew elected school board should do as was commissioned to them during their campaign-remove the superintendent and give the system a chance to improve in the educational quality that is necessary for success for our students. SOL's scores have been dismal since Sherman has been here. New teachers are leaving and little continuity exists. Administrators are bought in and leave after a very short time. Corruption is rampant in this school system. Due to the leadership which is very uncaring to its staff. Veteran teacher are retiring early due to this type of administrative leadership; as a result many experienced and good teachers will not be able to mentor the new staff or provide the necessary classroom leadership for the good of the students.

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