No opinion of CEO

I worked at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

I had a few very good students.

Cons

CMS just doesn't understand that discipline is their biggest problem. If the system worked on just this one issue, test scores would go way up. They just can't seem to hire principals that know how to turn a school around. I had six in 14 years and they all were ineffective.

Advice to Management

Deal with the poor discipline and hire principals that will support the teachers.

    I have been working at Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The work environment is great and there is great team work that goes on here. Everyone is friendly for the most part. No drama just blue collar workers going to a goal.

    Cons

    The pay isnt where it should be for this type of work. IT people should not be associates with getting Gasoline readouts or inputting labor cards for workers. That should fall under payroll, not the Information Technology department.

    Advice to Management

    Increase pay.
