    I worked at Community Unit School District full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Team playing teachers, newer school, supportive teammates.

    Cons

    The administration was not very supportive of the teachers and situations within the building. Special Ed students shouldn't have to be shifted from room to room, taught in hallways, stairwells, closets, etc. Admin shouldn't seem to be so removed from the classroom experience that they don't know what is going on, what is really going on in their schools and should support teachers with discipline, grading, etc.

  2.  

    Wrongful termination to cover up administration politics

    I worked at Community Unit School District full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    I was an art teacher for the high school and they have phenomenal art teachers and a fantastic art program. The community of teachers is great and most of the administration was incredibly supportive.

    Cons

    The administration has changed significantly and it is a very political environment. The teacher's union has made certain exception deals with administration that are not documented in the contracts and you can have your contract terminated over something you had no previous knowledge.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    listen to your teachers and student body and don't play office politics at the expense of young teacher's careers.
