    I have been working at Brevard County Public Schools part-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I've been a substitute, a short-term contract teacher, an instructional assistant and a personal caregiver assistant for Brevard Public Schools throughout the last ten years. I've worked with some amazing people at many different schools. I am very happy with BPS. There's always work when I need it and I've been able to select some interesting positions and schools to work at.

    Cons

    Like any workplace you'll run into someone whose personality conflicts with your own. It's to be expected. Thankfully it's been a rare occurrence for me.

    Pros

    Secure job, high performing schools, somewhat secure unless you have awful reviews.

    Cons

    Low pay with very little to NO raises for teachers, professional development that are mostly just time fillers - just let teachers work in their rooms!

    Advice to Management

    Use the 1/2 cent tax increase on teachers salary and not just building maintenance!

    I have been working at Brevard County Public Schools full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    I like the weather and the area is nice. The admin and other teachers work very hard to make it a good place to send students.

    Cons

    It is a very large system and this means that sometimes you may get lost in the shuffle. Trying to find out information about basic things is difficult.

    Advice to Management

    Check on your teachers and take time to sit and chat a minute about how everything is working out. Starting at a new place with new curriculum can be difficult especially if there is a move from another state involved.

    I have been working at Brevard County Public Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Above average parent support
    Above average administration support
    Good location
    Leadership truly makes decisions based on what seems to be best for students

    Cons

    The teaching profession isn't what it used to be in general
    Too much responsibility that has nothing to do with teaching the subject matter, but that is every district

    Advice to Management

    Filter out the information that your teachers don't have to actually have in front of them RIGHT NOW. Save it for later.
