I worked at Dallas Independent School District full-time for more than 10 years

Pros

Many different schools in different areas, seemingly more chances for job advancement in some fields, pays more than other districts in the area, large district with more chances for employment

Cons

Lack of support for teachers and other staff who come in contact with the public, bad public image, not enough subs, slow hiring process and certain necessary offices make it very hard to contact them, taking field trips is extremely difficult and paperwork changes often and is confusing, administrators are using the state's budget crisis to move people out

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Support your staff, follow your own rules and help find and elect a board with good conscious and a backbone

    I worked at Dallas Independent School District full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed working with children and some teachers. The joy you get when a child understands is amazing.

    Cons

    The district is too big. The schools, administrators and teachers need more attention. The number of children in a classroom keeps increasing.

    I have been working at Dallas Independent School District as an intern for less than a year

    Pros

    I enjoyed a fairly flexible schedule that was highly conducive to conducting my research. My supervisor was extremely helpful in offering suggestions.

    Cons

    I worked more or less directly with my supervisor, so I never got to know most of the staff. The building was also in a terrible neighborhood.
