    Pros

    I really enjoyed the campus and principal and staff they were all awesome

    I had to deal with the credential analyst in human resources aweful

    Advice to Management

    My recommendation pay more attention to what she is and not doing. Not to mention the late night rude calls from the office she makes.

    I worked at Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    I worked with some of the best nurses, who had copious experience and loved working with kids. It was my dream job.

    Cons

    We had a couple of school nurses who felt LPNS were not competent to do our jobs, which were very things we were trained, state Board tested on, and licensed to do.

    Advice to Management

    Expand school nursing to incorporate more LPNS, to help school nurses keep kids healthy and in school.

    Positive Outlook

    I worked at Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District full-time

    Pros

    Pay is comparable or higher than other districts in the area. If you get in with a good team your school can be great.

    Cons

    As with most jobs, politics can get in the way. They tried to delay my unemployment, contesting it, until the night before the hearing.

    Advice to Management

    Give teachers a chance to put the trainings into place and work with them before you bring in a newer better theory. I think this would likely be good advice for the management of any school district.

    I worked at Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    I love working with all students.
    The community is diverse ethnically and is continuing to grow.

    Cons

    The is constant turnover for school district administrators at all management levels is concerning.
    Many school administrators and those at the district level are hired with between 5 and 10 years of classroom experience. This lack of experience has weakened the quality and effectiveness of the entire system just as it would any business in the private sector.

    Advice to Management

    Try to hire managers who have a track record that includes years of successful teaching, strong management and leadership skills and have shown that they can manage a school and do what it takes so that everyone involved can benefit as a result of their leadership. .
