    Neutral Outlook
    No opinion of CEO

    I have been working at Douglas County School District (CO) part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Wonderful principal, teachers, families, and students
    -Each school has autonomy to make some decisions regarding schedules, allocation of budget
    -I benefit from the market based pay scale. I would not not work for this district if they did not make their pay for SLPs more competitive. The previous pay was not commensurate with other districts or jobs outside of public schools.

    Cons

    -I have virtually no budget for materials. Everything I use, I have purchased
    -Orchestra, band, even the school bus costs parents extra... while plenty of money is directed to upper management

    Advice to Management

    I try to focus on my job and ignore the general complaints in the district about upper management. It does not usually affect the service I provide to students. There is much discontent with management from both teachers and families and they will be short-lived.

    I have been working at Douglas County School District (CO) full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Great students, involved parents, ample supplies (depending on what school you work at). Teachers,, staff, and building level administration trying to navigate this oppressive culture to provide a quality educational experience.

    Cons

    Low pay in comparison to other metro area districts, disappearing benefits, total and complete chaos from district leadership initiatives, excessive reform initiatives from district level, unsupportive and disrespectful board, oppressive district climate and culture....list too excessive to continue

    Advice to Management

    Take the kickbacks you are getting from privatizing public education and move on to your next district wrecking endeavor.
