    I worked at Chandler Unified School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    District with highest teacher pay
    Extensive hours of Professional Development that you will actually use (and you get paid for it)
    District is well managed
    Benefits are much better than most districts
    Positive community support

    Cons

    Administration needs a tad more follow through with student discipline (but much better than most in my experience)
    It is hard to get hired as a first year teacher.

    Advice to Management

    Keep doing what you're doing and treating teachers the way they want to be treated. It bodes well for the future of our children.

    I have been working at Chandler Unified School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Flexibility and freedom, at least in my job and department. But then that makes it so people take advantage of it making the whole department look bad.

    Cons

    Politics, Politics, Politics, Politics, Politics, Politics

    HR is more corrupt than you'd ever think, basically they are not their for the students they are their to boost thier ego.

    Advice to Management

    Break up the OBVIOUS buddy systems.

    You went from Journey 2020 to Journey 2025, because what? Poor management, lack of experience because those who have authority only got that position because they are buddies, learn to listen to the students and teachers they are the ones who bring you the money that lets you earn $90,000+ a year.

    Oh an stop being corrupt it is not that hard, stop cutting corners get rid of out dated technology and fix dilapidated schools!

    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Chandler Unified School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    There are many talented and dedicated people working in CUSD in the classrooms and on the "front lines". The pay is better than some school districts but it is still not nearly fair for the work people are doing.

    Cons

    The leadership is a rigid hierarchy and if they feel threatened, inconvenienced, or even questioned, they will passive aggressively work against you. Even those at the top will gossip and buy in to gossip without looking beyond it to see if there is more to the story, and the motives of the person/people who started the rumor/criticism

    Advice to Management

    Watch out, you've got powerful people in leadership protecting themselves and their self interests instead of what's best for students and other staff
