    Current Employee - Mental Health Provider in Highlands Ranch, CO

    I have been working at Douglas County School District (CO) full-time

    Pros

    Great students and staff to work with.

    Cons

    Administration above the building level appears to have a totally separate and ultra-conservative agenda involving destroying neighborhood schools so parents will accept private and charter schools. The School Board tried to establish tax-funded voucher to be used at private, religious schools, but this is blocked by the ACLU and is currently tied up in appeals.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Go somewhere else - you've already done enough damage here and in Tucson.

    Current Employee - Substitute Teacher  in  Highlands Ranch, CO
    Current Employee - Substitute Teacher in Highlands Ranch, CO

    I have been working at Douglas County School District (CO) part-time for more than 8 years

    Pros

    Great teachers and kids, supportive families, innovative teaching strategies, hard working school administrators.

    Cons

    Extremely oppressive district administrators led by a politically charged Board of Ed. Low teacher morale, low compensation, lack of professional development opportunities.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to teachers and parents who request a big change in the reform agenda. Be respectful of your many opponents, be more fiscally responsible and transparent. Operate in the open rather than in executive session behind closed doors.
