    I have been working at Pearland ISD full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    I love my school because the staff is supportive and nice. Students want to learn and parents want to help out.

    Cons

    Benefits are expensive and the pay isn't as competitive as Alvin ISD. Content specialists are spread across the district. This could be a challenge if you are used to having one at your campus.

    Advice to Management

    More specialist support. Higher teacher supply budget. Give us the opportunity for comp days.

    Pros

    Great coworkers is why I continued to work here.

    Horrible supervisor is the reason I had to change districts

    Hire competient people to be in leadership. If you are supervising a department you should have at least taught in that area.

    I have been working at Pearland ISD part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    There are not many at all

    Cons

    Supervisors do not listen, Pay is awful. There are no advancement opportunities. Most of the jobs go to people that are liked and not based on their qualifications.

    Advice to Management

    Learn to listen and do something about what their personnel are telling them. Do not just sweep the complaints under the rug so to speak

    Pros

    Great, well-run high school with high standards in all academic and extracurricular programs. Responsive, hard-working administration at the campus level, who always try to make decisions that enhance student safety and welfare.
    The district as a whole manages money and facilities responsibly. Clean, safe campuses are the rule in Pearland ISD. Teachers want to work here.

    Cons

    Central office administrators seems to favor the other high school in town, and refuse to consider challenges unique to our campus, which is very different from the other school in town. Despite many proposals by teachers and administrators at Dawson, administration fails to take steps to address a culture where too many students are under tremendous pressure to take too many advanced courses. The GPA system needs to be reformed, so that all students have room to take electives that let them fully explore their own interests and strengths. This would also cut down on the pervasive cheating culture. They ignore research that points to early start times as highly detrimental to student health and welfare. In short, they fail to attend to the needs of the very students whose performance earn them the accolades they love to brag about.

    Advice to Management

    Make David Moody a Assst. Superintendent, and bring a little balance to the conversation at the top levels of administration.
