    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Killeen Independent School District part-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Killeen I.S.D. is a versatile work environment for substitute teachers K-12. I had the opportunity to work on various tasks and assignments for different grade levels K-12.

    Cons

    - Waiting for a month for the first paycheck is a bit lengthy, but overall it was a good experience.

    Advice to Management

    The information about how to be assigned as a substitute for the next school year could be communicated for a better understanding of what needs to be done.

      Respect nursing staff and include them in care planning and ARD and IEP meetings at times.

      Approves of CEO

      I have been working at Killeen Independent School District full-time for more than 2 years

      Pros

      Good Salary, Good bosses (dependent on what school you're at)

      Cons

      Lots of at-risk students, lots of paperwork due to the low socioeconomic status of the city. Transient community because of a military base, meaning students are coming and going constantly. Class management rules over teaching in this district. If you don't have classroom management the students will eat you alive.

      I have been working at Killeen Independent School District full-time

      Pros

      The teachers are a good bunch but are terribly overtaxed. They do the best they can with way too many students.

      Cons

      The administration has unethical practices and often bullies the staff to give grades that students have not earned. Parents have yelled at teachers with an administrator watching and saying nothing. It is an unhealthy environment for teaching and therefore for learning. There are too many Special Ed students shoved into a single classroom. The cooperative teacher is so overloaded that they hardly show up to help. They...

      Advice to Management

      Your practices are corrupt and you need to take a serious look at how they negatively affect the staff and students.
