I worked at Menlo Park City School District part-time (More than a year)
Lots of training for the staff- including behavioral modification
Very prompt responses from administration and HR
Generous salary and raises
Engaging staff for the most part
Administration was very involved
Environment can become fun for both staff and students
High expectations even for paraeducators
One supervisor lacked substance, disorganized, mismanaged staff.
Responsibilities could become intense
I applied online. The process took 2 weeks. I interviewed at Menlo Park City School District (Menlo Park, CA) in June 2014.
Standard interview plus demo of providing professional development plus writing sample. Applied on edjoin using standard process. About two weeks from application to offer. Everyone was easy to work with. I did run into other applicants in the waiting spaces though.
