    Pros

    The pay is awesome for being a teacher. They definatly are the highest around. The benefits are amazing and summers off.

    Cons

    They dont seem to treat the employees so well. It seems like a lot of stress from up the street is affecting them.

    Advice to Management

    Take a deep breath and leave some teachers alone. They have enough stress as it is. IT almost seems like administrators gang up on certain employees.

    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Poughkeepsie City School District as a contractor (Less than a year)

    Pros

    A lesson in life; Poughkeepsie City School District doesn't care if their employees starve.

    Cons

    I rate this company as the worst school district in the Hudson Valley. Opportunities to work as a substitute teacher are numerous, however, expect to not receive your wages on payday, which explains the numerous available assignments. With the exception of Clinton Elementary School, the other schools are run by rude and ignorant opportunists.

    Advice to Management

    Earn your salary by treating your employees with admiration, not condescending attitudes. I heard an administrator discuss how to treat students; train them as you would a bird to climb up your arm by putting them on the ground; really? Treat students like this and encourage them grow into adults who will behave like parrots.
