    Pros

    Most of the special education staff were professional and friendly. Building Principals were pleasant and easy to work with as were most teachers.
    The parents were pleasant and appreciative of all services offered their children.

    Cons

    The special education administration was top heavy; many supervisors to answer to and each had different expectations. They did not communicate with each other.

    Antagonistic environment between support staff; secretaries, clerks, etc.

    It is a very big district and a very large work load. Supervisors were very busy and didnot give clear expectations and guidelines as far as workload, working as a team, supporting their employees.

    Employees there a long time tended to be cliqueish and very defensive when things were tried a different way.

    Advice to Management

    Break up central special ed office into smaller units.
    Support new staff with clear guidelines and expectations.
    Supervisors should be more accessible as mentors and less as critics and defenders.


  3. "Therapist"

    Pros

    It's a big district so many opportunities for various teaching and paraprofessional positions available. Hours are regular except you do take work home.

    Cons

    Pay is decent but contract negotiations take a long time so sometimes you don't get a raise for awhile. You need to finish work at home often since the schedule during day does not allow enough time.

    Advice to Management

    allow case management time

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Clifton School District part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Pay and nice people to work with

    Cons

    Waiting to move to a higher position takes more time than expected even when position are open.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to evaluate the level and skills the employees have beyond the snippets seen in a glance.
