    I worked at Campbell County School District 1 full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    They really care about children and do their best to teach the students with the most current curriculum and styles.

    Cons

    Unfortunately in education, they add all of the new programs, but don't take anything away. The accountability issue is a problem too, there is so much testing, that they don't have time to learn.

    Advice to Management

    My best advice is to let teachers teach, for the most part they know what and how they should be teaching. Also let the students learn. Care more about their learning than assessing to see what they know.

    I worked at Campbell County School District 1 (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Associate Principal was wonderful. He never asked us to do anything he wouldn't. Very patient with training me and other assistant. Excellent with the students. Disciplined as a father would have. A real Gem!! Many nice caring people work there.

    Cons

    Overworked and underpaid. Untrusting Boss, who treated women as inferior, stayed in office all day. Students did not even know who he was. Inconsistent with discipline. Very sour personality. I've been in the business for 30 years and he was the worse principal I ever saw.

    Advice to Management

    Don't always believe your principal, ask the staff. Make sure you take evaluations from the staff. Look to hire from within.

    I worked at Campbell County School District 1 as a contractor (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits and the jobs are rewarding for anyone who enjoys working with students.

    Cons

    If you're classified staff, be prepared to be treated like the "hired help" by certified teachers and the administrators.
    There's very little training offered for classified employees.

    Advice to Management

    It's not an easy process to be hired on, which means those who are hired already posess the required skills , experience, references, and/or education to qualify for employment with CCS. Encourage your adminstrators and certified staff to treat classified staff like grown, responsible adults and less like clueless,12 year old students.
