    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at San Marcos Consolidated ISD full-time

    Pros

    Job security - almost impossible to get fired.
    Weekends and Holidays off if you aren't a coach.
    Routine... if that's what you like.

    Cons

    No support from higher ups.
    Central office has people that have been there too long and are resistant to change.
    Routine... if you don't like that.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to the grass roots folks, and give them back up. They are on the front lines.


  5. "A real community of learning"

    Pros

    The employees have a lot of heart and community spirit

    Cons

    The usual school-related annoyances. Standardized testing is taken very seriously, but if you have a good work-ethic it is fine.

    Advice to Management

    Keep a clear vision of the future. Emphasize minority inclusion in rigorous courses.


  6. "A school district focused solely on state tests as a metric for gauging individual student achievement."

    Pros

    Have many new resources and an abudance of technology at your fingertips.

    Cons

    Programs and initiatives implemented by districts do not provide adequate foundation and support for students to master any subject before being forced to move along in accordance with the yearly scope and sequence, pacing guide.

    Advice to Management

    Retire or get back in touch with reality and back to the fundamentals of real teaching!
