    I worked at Inglewood USD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Great kids who need you! There are also some great principals.

    Cons

    The district is bankrupt and under a state appointed superintendent. There is no, I mean no money. It is the lowest paid district in the state. The most motivated and functional students are leaving the district in large numbers, leaving the neediest kids in a system that lacks the resources to support them or help them succeed. I worked their for 4 years and was laid off in three of those years. They are projecting deep layoffs for the next academic year and pressuring the union to make major concessions in an already horrifically under compensated system.

    Advice to Management

    Find a way to get the state to invest the assets needed to turn the district around, rather than merely managing the hollowing out of the district.

    Pros

    The exam for entrance wasn't too difficult. I had a good experience interviewing. Some of the people that I met are good people. School district vacation schedules.

    Cons

    Very disorganized, budget issues, some underhanded practices at times. Some people are underqualified for positions that they hold. very overworked worked and underpaid at times. I would not send my children to any of the schools in this district.

    Advice to Management

    My advice would be to do an overhaul of your management and advisory board. Ensure that people have the qualifications necessary to run the district.
