    I worked at Washoe County Schools full-time for more than 5 years

    Pros

    Most of the students are great, keeping in mind every place has its issues. I would say most building administrations seem to have a clue, but not all.

    Cons

    Upper bureaucracy is ineffective and consistently makes poor choices, from execution of plans to hiring effective teachers and administration. There is frequent inconsistency from site to site and zone to zone, as a result of a massive school district that should really be broken in to more autonomous regions. Good luck working with the transportation department, which is an embodiment of all the issues the district... has (including accountability of funds!).

    Advice to Management

    Fire ineffective administrations, educators, and staff members--they are holding you back. Figure our transportation, which is an ABSOLUTE mess.

    WCSD should take advantage of well educated instructors who want to continue working after retiring from full time teaching with the district.
