    I have been working at Spring Independent School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    -Salary above 50k
    -Benefits
    -Time off around holidays and summers

    Cons

    -Poor organization that does not communicate expectations clearly
    -District does not support campuses
    -Poor professional development compared to other districts for newer teachers
    -Discipline is not handled well by the district and though my principal has tried several avenues and solutions to combat this, they are still met with resistance from administration when it comes to implementing these solutions.

    Advice to Management

    Support your campuses' initiatives for discipline management. That would at least be a start.

    Pros

    Like most teaching jobs, the teachers in general are good people.

    Cons

    However the teachers are pretty upset over the whole grade thing that happened last year, and that is the only thing on the admins minds.

    Advice to Management

    Actually be a school

    I worked at Spring Independent School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Cares about their employees
    Even the title one schools receive decent funding
    Did a great job of recognizing top teachers for their hard work and dedication

    Cons

    Benefits are terrible (Health insurance is not very good. Almost best to get an outside vendor)
    Hard to get time off (as with any teaching job)
    District is still in early part of restructuring with new superintendent (but he is trying to really make it a top notch one)

    Advice to Management

    Overall the plan you have implemented, seems to be working. I am excited to see where this takes your kids in the long haul

    I worked at Spring Independent School District (Less than a year)

    Pros

    In spring, the pros were flexible hours, daytime hours, good caseloads and good support from the SLP staff and schools assigned to in the district.

    Cons

    The major con to working in Spring ISD was the increase in paperwork. The demands brought about conflict with time to deliver services to the children.

    Advice to Management

    Overall, Spring ISD was a good school district with good support for SLPs. I enjoyed the freedom to implement therapy services according to my professional judgement.
