    Approves of CEO

    I have been working at Cleveland Metropolitan School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    If you are interested in helping students who need the most help, this is the place to go. There are plenty of opportunities to teach, coach, coordinate. And there are many connections in the community that can be accessed to work collaboratively with others to help the community in general. The majority of teachers and administration are easy to work with. Parents can be challenging, but skills can be developed to be effective at reaching out to the parents.

    Cons

    Most administrators are easy to work with, but if you have a nutty one, and they don't like you (even if you've been considered a good educator for years), they can ruin your year, or even your career. The district offices are often ineffective which adds an extra layer of frustration to an already difficult job. The middle management has too many ineffectual people who really don't belong there - - the working theory is that they got those jobs because they must know someone.
    In addition, if you are just starting out in teaching I'm not sure that the new compensation package makes it work it to teach in some hard to work in schools. Tread carefully when getting hired.

    Advice to Management

    work on recognizing talent and hiring thoughtful, intelligent managers and administrators.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 2+ weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Metropolitan School District (Cleveland, OH).

    Interview

    Very through and fast interview but slow on decision making. I liked the organization and all the people who interviewed me. They were very genuine people. All through the process they made me feel comfortable. Full of positive vibe in their office. In a very good location at downtown Cleveland. Would love to work with this team now or in the future.
