I worked at Mesa County Valley School District full-time (more than an year)

Pros

They are pretty much the only district for most of Mesa County, so they really don't have any competition.

Cons

Like many schools and districts, they have no idea what they are doing and are just throwing ideas at the wall, seeing if there are any immediate results and if they'll stick. They have teachers drop everything to try a new idea out and then never do any follow up.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Make sure that it is actually the principal who is running the school and not the custodian like out at Loma Elementary.

    I have been working at Mesa County Valley School District

    Pros

    Real 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.

    Cons

    Difficult 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 ManagementAdvice

    Keep working on bringing more of an equal sharing of technology (ex, prometheum boards, throughout the district)
