I worked at School District U-46 full-time for more than 8 years

Pros

Many of the school-level administrators are former U-46 teachers that have gotten their type-75s. So, they're invested in their school district, and they have tested educational know-how. I am proud to have graduated and gone back to teach along side of many teachers I respected.

The union is very supportive of its teachers.

Cons

Unfortunately, top-level district administrators lately have been a revolving door of people who mean well but end up trying different latest & greatest strategies to both balance the budget and improve student achievement. However, since no one stays around long enough to see the impact of their plans, the students end up being guinea pigs for these strategies and teachers end up blamed for botched top-level district instructional mandates.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Try not to do so much with so little. Give more time for strategies to work before moving onto the next "greatest" thing.
