I worked at Galt Joint Union High School District
Pros – good facilities and capable colleagues; pay schedule competitive with surrounding districts
Cons – Factions within the community and school board have contributed to a high turnover in administrators, unequal funding of programs, and consequent low morale among staff.
Advice to Senior Management – Not every voter understands what it takes to help all students achieve academic success.

I have been working at Galt Joint Union High School District
Pros – The high school district cares about the students, aims to be fair, and encourages continuing professional development. The school district also respects cultural differences.
Cons – The parents in the community are very involved and have stronger influence than they should, perhaps because of the small size of the city. They put a lot of pressure on the teachers and influential parents impact the success of other students.
Advice to Senior Management – Trust the teachers more. The parents are important, and their role in education can be very helpful; however, oftentimes the parents who speak up have little or no knowledge in the subject field they are complaining about, yet they have greater voice than the college-educated faculty.
