    Pros

    Most of the other teachers are easy to get along with.

    Cons

    After over a decade in the district the students are getting worse overall. The district continually focuses most resources on the lowest 5-10 % in hopes of having a few more graduate. Attendance = more state $$$

    Advice to Management

    Fire yourselves

    Pros

    Decent healthcare
    Some of the unions are strong which makes it good
    Teachers have a good union and a mentor program
    Teaching opportunities

    Cons

    The Superintendent believes that you can run the district like a game of stratigo or risk. So he has no clue or experience about how things actually work. People hand him nice excel reports when he probably doesn't even know how to use excel. Further most of the board are former teachers so the are clueless as well. Hello, half your district are not classroom teachers, which means you have to know management skills.

    If you are seeking any type of administrator or principle type position your job will be 80% good old fashioned business management. Get the notion of being an instructional leader out of your head. They have a well paid instructional department for that.

    Advice to Management

    None, how can the seek technology and innovation when they themselves lack technology skills.
