I worked at Bakersfield City School District

Pros

work with at risk kids where you can make a difference not only educationally, but in their personal lives as well.

Cons

easy to get bumped from school if you don't have a lot of experience, fluctuated student numbers cause increase or decrease in classes...you may have to change grades. I don't like jobs being given for seniority reasons instead of performance reasons....typical of education system.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

kids first...don't worry about whining teachers.

    I worked at Bakersfield City School District part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    This district is very large; they handle employment for many schools operated in the greater Bakersfield area. As a substitute teacher, you can almost always be sure the telephone registration system will contact you to offer employment. In addition, substitute teachers can enroll in the districts insurance compensation payment system with SISC: Self-Insured Schools of California, which keep adding a percentage portion of your wages and it gains interest dividends for when you become unemployed (for whatever reason) you can withdraw money from this fund.

    Cons

    In the beginning it's sometimes hard to locate schools within a short time (if called in the morning, same day). But if called the evening before, it's much better because you can look it up online.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Advice to administrators: Make sure they acquire information from the regular teacher as to where they are in the lesson: Chapter, page number, etc. Work students are supposed to do or turn in. Otherwise the substitute does not know what to have the students do and they have to improvise. This can be very tough while having to also handle classroom management with a classroom full of students eager to be directed to their next assignment...
