    I worked at Inglewood USD as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    While working I enjoy being able to do what I have been trained to do everyday and because it is something that I am passionate about it really doesn't seem like working just helping people with the benefits of being able to take care of myself as well.

    Cons

    The fact that there are no spot for starting level Computer IT in the district is disheartening because I really enjoyed my time helping through testing season but now that it is over there won't hire anymore until next CAT test season, however I would really enjoy a full-tie position as entry level IT.

    Advice to Management

    I would suggest taking on more IT contracted workers because seeing how well the students and teachers responded to me being there to help them thru their daily work life and not have to worry about any computer issues. And I have heard from several staff and students saying that they will miss all the help having a dedicated IT working at the school daily.

    I have been working at Inglewood USD as a contractor

    Pros

    If you enjoy education and don't do it for the money, IUSD offers you an opportunity to make a difference in children's lives.

    Cons

    Inglewood Unified School District is in receivership. Poor technology support district wide, many older retirement aged teachers who can't wait to get a raise so they can officially retire as many have "checked out" long ago. Overcrowding classrooms, lot's of bickering over little things (the usual) Way too much testing, way too little site support, old computers, no vision to bring District wide technology up to par with neighboring districts. No continuous useful training for teachers.

    Advice to Management

    New Management is now in place at the top. We'll see how it goes. Gotta give Dr. Matthews a chance to turn it around. He has a reputation for being a fixer. Good Luck and God Speed!

    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.
