I worked at Palo Alto Unified School District full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

High salary and compensation that recognizes continuing education, access to quality educational supplies, art, music and PE programs and lower classroom sizes.

Cons

The cons associated with working with the public school system. While our school wasn't as focused on testing as in other districts, the standards are still present and taught. However, as a teacher you are given much more ability to be creative in your curriculum development. Some teachers complain about pushy parents, other teachers appreciate the parent-involvement.

    Overall PAUSD is a fair district with a strong commitment to teachers, students and staff. There is a great amount of solidarity among colleagues.

    Cons

    Part time staff is not given full benefits which is petty and short sighted.

    Advice to Management

    Advocate more for full benefits for part-time staff. Improve public transportation options.
