Hard-working district drowning under mandates

Former Employee - Teacher in Charlotte, NC
Former Employee - Teacher in Charlotte, NC

I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than a year)

Pros

Diverse community with hard working teachers and administrators. Strong community support and parent involvement.

Cons

Too many mandates brought down from leadership...WAY too big, and not equitable in distribution of resources.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Stop putting more and more burden on the school's just to show off on the national stage. If you want to show great progress, change your district leadership and policies.

    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    They offer tons of professional development.

    Cons

    constant changes in policy, principals, and co workers. You have to pay $50 to use your personal days and health insurance is horrible. 8 hour workday plus meetings on demand

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Stop moving principals so much. Stop making so many systematic changes so quickly

    Current Employee - Executive Director in Charlotte, NC
    Current Employee - Executive Director in Charlotte, NC

    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    This is a very large public entity with lots of opportunities across business sectors. Great salary and benefits packages. Also allows investment in state retirement system.

    Cons

    The size of the organization and it being public sometimes means that things move slow and there is some bureaucratic stuff to deal with. Much of the experience depends on the specific business unit or supervisor you have.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Look outside of education for management positions sometimes.
