    I worked at Frederick County Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Of course, the main pro or con will be the school environment and your individual principal. This is for FCPS overall.
    - Forward thinking leadership from Superintendent Alban and Central Office Staff
    - Increasing availability of technology to use in the classroom (one of Dr. Alban's pet projects)
    - Solid curriculum leadership (at least in my department)

    Cons

    - Salary and raises are governed by the County which brings politics into the mix. Politics and education does not mix well - in fact, the two should NEVER be in the sentence.

    Advice to Management

    Do NOT move poorly performing principals from one school to another. If a school is suffering from poor management it is the principal at fault, not the teachers. Moving a principal will not improve his or her management skills and only fosters pain on a new group of people. Central Office must either train/retrain or let go of poorly performing administrators.

    Application

    I applied online. I interviewed at Frederick County Public Schools.

    Interview

    No interview. There are some training modules that you must take online (cost was minimal), and pass with an 80% (not difficult), get a T.B. test done with negative results, pass background checks, and approval process through the School Board.

    Interview Questions

    • There was no formal interview. You simply send an email, or call them, with your interest in Subbing and they'll get you started in the process.   1 Answer
