    I worked at Clark County School District full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    I worked at a fantastic school and I have mostly had great administrators. There are always a few duds, but I had many colleagues who I respected and admired and who became good friends.

    Cons

    Mismanagement of funds happens frequently at the district level, and budget deficits are almost always passed onto the schools. Teacher contracts are always being renegotiated and CCSD is always trying to take from us. I never felt valued by CCSD, but I did feel valued by my school, my admins, and my students.

    Advice to Management

    Make cuts at the top, NOT at the bottom where it directly affects students.

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

    Pros

    Good pay in ratio to cost of living
    Some great administrators to work for
    Most schools offer great learning programs, and access to new technology

    Cons

    Do more to mediate conflicts more instead of simply pulling people into their own corners and passing judgment. Also, strong leadership means you deal with conflicts and take control of adverse situations. Be sure to lead by example if you expect subordinates to respect your directives.
