I have been working at Henrico County Public Schools

Pros

Henrico county schools have a lot of resources available to both teachers and students which help make lesson more interesting and fun for children.

Cons

Lunches and planning periods are not equally divided amongst all teachers in Henrico County. I find myself having a 15 minute lunch break and no time to run to the bathroom many days.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Management should make sure all teachers are recognized for their efforts and hard work and not exclude elective teachers. Also make sure all teachers have equal planning, duty, and lunch periods.

    I worked at Henrico County Public Schools

    Pros

    Principal and administrative staff are good people but they're just treading water trying to stay ahead of NCLB's unfunded mandates. There are some very good people teaching kids in these schools and some of the schools are clean and well equipped.

    Cons

    some schools-mine included--are in poor condition, dirty. HIgh staff turn over. MOney is distributed unevenly. Schedules are inconsistent and for some reason special area teachers get inordinate amounts of planning time while regular ed teachers barely get planning times 4 out of 5 days.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Create fair and uniform schedules. Insist on clean buildings. Provide adequate money for classroom supplies.
