I have been working at Cleveland Metropolitan School District full-time (More than a year)
I love CMSD, Eric Gordon's genius Cleveland Plan, and the talented leadership of this district. The central office knows what they are doing and they are bringing in so many research based practices.
Cleveland Teacher's Union have way too much power.
Advice to Management
End CTU power, either teachers are laborers (union repped) or professionals (no union rep). End CTU (teachers and union chairs only abide by the contracts when it is convenient for them)
I applied through an employee referral. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Cleveland Metropolitan School District (Cleveland, OH) in May 2015.
Initial online application (very detailed and took up to approx, 30mins) -> 3 essay questions in regards to The Cleveland Plan, interest in urban education, and personal qualification -> Phone interview (less than 30mins) -> Received verbal offer in 3 days
