    I have been working at Boulder Valley School District part-time

    Pros

    Great students to work with, high level of talent and enjoyable schools to be a part of. The high level of expectations for students here really makes a difference.

    Cons

    Tough behavior situations sometimes, with lots of different job locations and sometimes lots of driving. Some days are worse than others but it really depends on the school climate and the leadership at the top.

      I worked at Boulder Valley School District part-time

      Pros

      School schedule is great with young kids.

      Cons

      They need to change the title of positions to reflect the people in the positions.

      Advice to Management

      Recognize those who are not teachers but work very hard to make sure the kids are safe and happy.

      I have been working at Boulder Valley School District full-time for more than a year

      Pros

      The kids are optimistic about their predicament

      Cons

      The per student budget of $25,000 is horribly misused, so that the whole per grade science budget is $250 for the whole year

      Advice to Management

      Stop being so corrupt. You will be the reason why our students fail

      I have been working at Boulder Valley School District full-time for more than 6 years

      Pros

      Higher paying than other neighboring school districts.

      Cons

      You will be absolutely treated like you are replaceable. I have worked for a district out of state that also paid more than neighboring districts, however they also honored all years experience and education. Additionally, they treated you like you were a respected and cared for professional that worked hard to earn the position. Boulder Valley could sincerely care less about their employees, treating them all like replaceable...

      Advice to Management

      Treat your employees like they are irreplaceable because I've worked with many of them after 5 years being shuffled around from school to school and I am telling you, many of your teachers are not replaceable. Especially the new ones that fight so hard for temporary contracts.

      Pros

      Open and responsive administration, especially at the school sites

      Cons

      Disconnect between district and sites. There is a lot of autonomy at the schools and that can be in conflict with centralized decisions
