    I have been working at Alexandria City Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    The students at ACPS are great and a joy to teach. I work co workers are hard workers and very passionate about they work that they do. ACPS provides all employees with a computer and chrome book.

    Cons

    Teachers are not given a lot of autonomy or freedom to teach. It is a super micromanaged environment. Central office is full of a lot of young people and they don't have the answer to a lot of questions.

    Advice to Management

    It is important to trust teachers to do their job and when they are struggling, find ways to support them. When teachers feel supported, they are more willing to take in the advice and make the needed changes.

    I worked at Alexandria City Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Families want to support their children. Great work life balance for support staff. Annual contract covers winter and spring break and federal holidays.

    Cons

    Turnover at schools is high which leads to constant changes. Communication between schools and central office could improve.
