There is absolutelly no continuity on curriculum and education programs.
Top management waste of money.
Long hours, 20 minutes lunch, lots of extra hours without paid.

    I have been working at Dallas Independent School District full-time for less than a year

    Pros

    The same as all teaching jobs: summer and winter holidays, benefits and the opportunity to work with other teachers.

    Cons

    This district is poorly managed, current superintendent has created a lot of havoc thus far. Teacher morale is low, teachers haven't received a raise in 4 years and discipline management from the campus administrators is poor.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Fire Mike Miles and put someone in charge who could finally make DISD proud!

    I worked at Dallas Independent School District full-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Magnet schools are generally decent workplaces, salary is better than other nearby districts, though frontloaded

    Cons

    Systemic disrespect for teachers as professionals, very little trust, racial tension, ugly and under-maintained facilities, expensive benefits for families, administrators are generally not good at management and leadership, long history of promotion to level of incompetance

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Man, if I knew, I'd apply for an admin job. Problems are too deep to tackle in an online review.
