    "FUSD FACTS Program"

    I worked at Flagstaff Unified School District #1 part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    My staff and coworkers were fantastic. My immediate supervisor was helpful and very supportive. The main boss was only okay, but I did not have to work with him often so it was fine. When I really needed something, he'd help.

    Cons

    Not the best pay. For all that you do, you deserve to be paid more. Make sure you try and start with a higher pay because getting bumped up after that, unless you're in school, is extremely difficult.

    I worked at Flagstaff Unified School District #1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The administration is serious about consequences for bad student behavior. The school climate is great.

    Cons

    The pay is way too low, Flagstaff is an expensive place to live.

    Advice to Management

    Never stop telling the school board and the community that low pay will make it hard to retain good teachers.

    I worked at Flagstaff Unified School District #1 full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Job was working with K-5 children in elementary school setting and was very rewarding. The FUSD #1 had exceptional health care benefits.

    Cons

    The FUSD #1 was only able to employ me for 35 hours per week and had little opportunity to improve hourly wage which was very meager.

    Advice to Management

    Take care of your employees that work for low hourly wages such as the paraprofessionals and offer them same benefits as certified employees.

    I have been working at Flagstaff Unified School District #1 full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    A whole lot. Benefits including State Retirement, dental insurance, vision insurance, heath insurance. Everyone is very friendly.

    Cons

    Not much room for growth within the district. Because it is a paid by the state, it can get scary around the new fiscal year, because you sometimes don't know if you'll have a job next year.
