    Pros

    It's a great organization, supportive of all teachers, students and staff. Communication is of paramount importance at SLUSD. The professional development workshops opportunities that are offered throught the district are a great way to enhance and support the professionals who work there. I also like the camaraderie and network opportunities that are afforded to all employee across the board.

    I have been working at San Leandro USD full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    You get 3 months off, there's a lot of control over what you do, and you get to spend time with young people who over the years keep you young. It took me only 2 years to get my curriculum and class down."

    Cons

    There's little growth intellectually, no glory, and you feel disassociated from the professional world.

    Advice to Management

    Manage less.

    Pros

    Relatively humane considering how difficult it is to remain employed within this downword economy. Cutbacks seem to be by attrition. No game playing in terms of their subfinder system. Management is reasonably competent.

    Cons

    Budget cutback make life insecure for all involved, so temporary staff is unclear about what shoes are going to drop next. However, they are still in better shape than most other districts in the Bay Area.

    Advice to Management

    Reasonable assurance letters should go out sooner.
