Mesa County Valley school district is a positive place to work

Teacher (Current Employee)
Grand Junction, Mesa, CO

ProsReal effort is taken to inservice employees. Opportunities are made available to interested staff. Support is made available to new teachers through a mentoring program. For out-of-district teachers, up to ten years are taken for salary consideration.

ConsDifficult to advance to administration. Initiation of MA program at local college means there is a decreased opportunity for some to be considered for a position in administration. Housing in the area has become pretty expensive for a teacher's salary. The district is having issues with overcrowding at some of its schools. The last bond election failed to pass, so no resolution is in sight.

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep working on bringing more of an equal sharing of technology (ex, prometheum boards, throughout the district)

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
