    I have been working at Rio Rancho Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Very focused on children; strong support at the school level and very good salaries for all levels of staff in the schools and at the district office.

    Cons

    They often try to do too much and lose focus. There is tremendous support at the schools and administrators work hard to keep teachers' plates from being too full.

    Advice to Management

    Support in removing excessive and unnecessary constraints on teaching.

    Pros

    Every principal and dean I worked for was fair, helpful, and supportive. Kids are great, facilities are very nice.

    Cons

    They will pay you as little as possible. They will go out of their way to keep money from you. They once made a mistake on my placement on the salary scale and instead of giving me the money I was owed in the next paycheck, they divided the monetary amount of their mistake by 11 and dispersed it throughout the year.

    Advice to Management

    you get what you pay for

    Pros

    The district has a small district feel to it with a stable leadership core.

    Cons

    A Financially challenged district . HR intentionally makes life more difficult than it has to for employees to save pennies.

  9. "Better than most districts , but nevertheless in need of improvement"

    Pros

    Pay is generally higher than other districts. School grounds are usually nicer, as well , in comparison to APS facilities, at least. It really depends on the administrators at the school to set high standards while providing ample support to the staff and students. Higher population of Special needs students is common in RRPS, due to the better reputation it has as a school district.

    Cons

    Classes are overcrowded, and there is a general lack of support by administration and the District. There are so many standardized tests, you can barely focus on teaching. Special needs students are highly unsupported, but I heard it's worse in other districts.

    Advice to Management

    Support your staff, and pay more attention to intervention methods and the overall well-being of the morale at your school.
