Pros

Great supportive faculty in the schools. Good vision for the future for the well being of students including STEM schools.

Cons

Not given appropriate training to do your job effectively. An administrative staff that made teachers feel as if it was an "us and them" situation instead of everyone working cooperatively for the greater good of the students.

Advice to Management

Could have had a good vision for the school system but there seemed to be some underlying political issues that they were guided by.

    I worked at Adams 12 Five Star Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    The teachers and individuals out in the schools are amazing. Great people to work with and help. Decent pay.

    Cons

    Between an over population of Senior Management, the career growth opportunities are slim to none. If you are not a teacher, you usually have to wait for someone to get fired, retire, or die before a promotion is possible. The culture is extremely caustic with friends of Sr. Management being hired. The move to Kaiser only for healthcare denied the choice for the employee.

    It is very interesting that a new director in a department was hired by the CITO who previously worked with him at a previous job. Does this look like an equal opportunity employer? Nope.

    Advice to Management

    Stop hiring your friends. Focus on a positive culture. No one wants to be surrounded by the caustic attitudes. Check your budget and allocate more for a positive culture for both staff and students.

    I worked at Adams 12 Five Star Schools full-time

    Pros

    Good teachers, good physical environment for teachers and students.

    Cons

    Since the current Superintendent came to power the administration is top heavy with unnecessary, highly paid Executive Directors. They are absolutely tone deaf to teachers and real student needs. There is a district wide effort to get rid of highly qualified teachers so they can hire inexperienced, young teachers whom they can intimidate and control.. Very poor administrators (principals, etc) who are rarely at school because they are always at meetings. Very political, unsupportive environment throughout the district.

    Advice to Management

    Listen and support teachers who are on the front lines.
