I worked at Fairfax County Public Schools full-time (more than 3 years)

Pros

Good schools, diverse district, talented teachers. Fabulous supports for new teachers and solid professional development opportunities through their Academy program. Reputation as one of the top districts in the US keeps them on their toes.

Cons

Leadership varies greatly by school and can be hit or miss. Wonder how things might change with a new superintendent...

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Focus more on really training and supporting excellent school leaders.
