    Pros

    Great district, great students and staff.

    Cons

    Principals are so varied as in the competence. Some are excellent but others are not and you are stuck with them forever. They do not move building principals very much. They also as a group are so inclined to not make waves that many fail in their job performance.

    Advice to Management

    Let teachers evaluate principals and the schools will perform at a MUCH higher level.

    Pros

    Sped department is wonderful to work with. They care a lot about the students. Your facilitator is always available to help when needed.

    Cons

    Don’t pay much attention to special education teachers.

    Advice to Management

    Please don’t look over the special education students. They matter and should be recognized by administration within campuses

    I worked at Spring Branch Independent School District full-time

    Pros

    You mostly have autonomy in the planning and executions of your lessons.

    Cons

    Different schools have very different expectations and climates depending on the principal. Behavior at the Title I schools is generally poor and students are very low compared to other non Title I schools in the district.

    Advice to Management

    Consider redrawing district lines to have more economically diverse student populations. Standardize your principals’ management expectations and your schools’ programs and resources.
