    I have been working at Tooele County School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The teachers are working hard to maintain excellent teaching practices and procedures. The schools that I have worked in have great PLC s.

    Cons

    The politics are always the downfall of any job.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The top is heavy and needs to be weeded out of good old boys

    I worked at Tooele County School District as a contractor (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    small community, caring teachers, well cared for building conditions, good professional development team from outside of district providing individual support, minimal student behavior issues, reasonable weather

    Cons

    isolated from some basic resources like retail stores, high ELL population, poor communication skills from administration, misleading expectations given to new staff

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The school board needs to pay close attention to the decisions made by the principal and the communication skills exhibited.

    I have been working at Tooele County School District part-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    Good pay for a part-time job.

    Cons

    There is too much nepotism and hiring by who you know and not what you know.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be more aware of what is happening in the individual schools.

    I have been working at Tooele County School District full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Progressive. Using Common Core. Developing the entire district as Professional Learning Communities

    Cons

    Very stressful keeping up with and complying to constant changes/expectations which might just come with the territory.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus on 1 big thing at a time and give time to master that before adding another big expectation. i.e. working on PLC goals, PE grant requirements, and common core transition all at the same time.

    I have been working at Tooele County School District

    Pros

    Usually a rewarding experience with the students. Our new supervisor and our superintendent are very good people to work for, most of the drivers are pleasant to be around, just stay away from the ones who like the drama. I enjoy having the summer off. Hourly pay is decent.

    Cons

    I wish the health benefits were affordable. It would be nice to get more hours, this job probably won't work for someone who needs full time work.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Just remember to discipline the drivers who are trouble makers and reward the good drivers. Previous supervisor overlooked this important detail.
