      I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools full-time

      Pros

      Benefits are wonderful and inexpensive. The schedule for time off is also a plus.

      Cons

      It is difficult to change roles within the system once hired. Student behavior is negatively impacting instruction. Pay increases ( by step) have been frozen for quite some time.

      Advice to Management

      Support teachers more, as many are leaving.

      I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The medical benefits are excellent. That's all.

      Cons

      When you have the lowest score on Glassdoor of any large school district in MD (which includes Baltimore), a 41% recommend rate, and a lower score than Walmart, does anything need to be said? Don't get suckered into this.

      Advice to Management

      You need to study school systems in other states, as well as the top two in Maryland. We all work with what we have, and schools are different everywhere. The problem here is the actual district, as indicated on this website.

      Current Employee - Anonymous Employee 

      I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools full-time

      Pros

      Excellent colleagues and school-based staff

      Cons

      Significant inequity between schools based on no differentiation or additional resources provided for schools with higher needs. Some schools have high burnout potential.

      Advice to Management

      Differentiated professional development based on the needs of the schools. Provided relief to overworked and overwhelmed faculty in schools with high needs and little additional support.

      I have been working at Anne Arundel County Public Schools full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      Cons

      -Barely any opportunities for professional development during school hours (almost all are after school hours or on weekends) -Teachers do not have planning time every day -One random long day each week, where you must stay an hour after your regular time -Very test score driven and focused, no care about educating the whole child -Supervisors on different levels do not communicate, making expectations unclear and...

      Advice to Management

      You hired teachers you thought were great, LET THEM TEACH and listen to them. Trust your teachers! You need to work a lot harder on developing cultural proficiency within your schools, as well, and need to start teaching health at every grade level in order to provide students with a more well-rounded curriculum. Pay attention to what other counties are doing and give your teachers sufficient planning time each day, varied...
