Pros

Paid vacation and illness. Leave of absence for Professional Growth Study. Many Holidays off and time off to recoup.

Cons

Some teachers aren't that great or don't care so much (that's not to say there aren't some awesome ones there that don't love the kids because there are) and this can be disheartening. Also, if you are not on salary, like a teacher is, then you get time off without pay and it makes managing through off track time difficult. Also, it is hard now to work your way up to teaching positions as a paraprofessional to teacher due to all the recent cuts in staff.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

More information that is shared with teachers should also be shared with paraprofessionals. We feel left out much of the time.

No opinion of CEO

    Pros

    The largest school district in California means there many resources avaiable. It's all about finding the right school and the right fit for you.

    Cons

    Don't expect the school district to do much for you. It's so important to have good working relationships with your colleagues and administrators.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Get the budget under control. Stop spending money on administrative costs. Teachers are working overtime to compensate and it's not fair to them or the students.

    Pros

    The pay is very good for substitutes. It is average for full-time employees.

    The lack of efficiency. The inconsistency of management. The students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Break up the district and start over.
