    I worked at Sacramento City USD full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    it was close to home

    Cons

    There is no continuity in leadership. It is like the X-Files, no one really ever leaves. The school board balked at increasing teacher salaries but created 56 new management jobs. It is fixed.and unless you are part of the dominant group, good luck getting any recognition

    Advice to Management

    Honor your staff and quit trying to underpay, under cut and undermine them.

    I have been working at Sacramento City USD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Preschool teachers are paid on the regular teacher salary even if they only have a Permit, not a credential. Easy to move up the salary scale without approval of classes. A degree is not required after your BA to move up, only units.

    Cons

    Preschool teachers have a huge workload with little prep time. High stress, difficult children, pressure from supervisors. Little room to move up as there is a great deal of favoritism and nepotism.

    Advice to Management

    Get trained on how to be a manager.
