Rochester City School District Reviews
Pros – The pay is good and you can get the work.
Cons – They rarely put many people of color in permanent positions . Although 100% of the students are diversed. Make sure you get the budget code because all the secretaries act like a witch when it come to payroll. They like to minimize and maximize thru title. Backstabber
Advice to Senior Management – Be helpful. Give and you shall recieve.
– I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – Wonderful pay, benefits. Co-workers were nice, mentoring for new teachers available.
Cons – School was a zoo. Students are allowed to get away with any type of behavioral issue, as the "consequences" are minimal, ineffective, and almost laughable. Therefore, learning is also minimal, and teachers are not supported to provide the best instruction possible.
Advice to Senior Management – Have forums where both teachers and students voices are heard....so many building principals and superintendent do not know why there is such a low attendance and drop out rate....look at the behaviors of students in buildings : fights daily, students running everywhere, talking back to students, no security, minimal social work/counseling support, principals completely overwhelmed and rarely available. Students who are actually trying to learn are distracted by the awful behaviors that occur almost every 2 minutes in classrooms, disrupting instruction. Unfortunately, until something changes, and tighter rules are implemented for behaviors, nothing is going to change.
No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
Pros – The original location was nice because it was located downtown. The people where fairly nice. The first two years there 40 hour weeks were a regular occurrence.
Cons – My work hours were scaled back to less than 40 hours a week. I received no raises the entire time i worked there but my workload increased drastically. I was offered a position in the mail room but my supervisor refused to let me go which resulted in a missed opportunity for advancement in the district.
