Okay place to work but only until better employment can be obtained
School Nutrition Assistant (Current Employee) – Morrow, Ga. – February 21, 2017
Work is done as a team, not all team members have same skill level or motivation to do the job. Some employees only care to do the minimum of what is required which leads to an imbalance of work load(some workers always doing more than others without compensation for doing more) Management treats all workers as if minimal supervision is needed which is not necessarily true of all workers. The most enjoyable part of job is providing nutritious meals to children, especially the ones who appreciate it. .
With Clayton County Schools, every employee have job requirements that need to be met by the end of the day
Head Custodian (Current Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – September 4, 2016
A typical day at work is to motivate myself to the the best job performance that I'm able to do. I've learn through the year that procrastination is something an individual can not do when working towards better work performance. Management is a job that one must be an example for those that are being managed. Co-workers are individuals that plays apart in ones everyday life. The hardest part of a job is an individual themselves, the most enjoyable part of a job is when I can see smiles on individual faces after a long day of a difficult task has been completed.
working at your own pace.
come to work even when one thinks that it is there most difficult time in life
I have been a loyal employee, and CCPS has in turn demonstrated its loyalty to me.
English Teacher (Current Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – December 31, 2016
The world has changed drastically. Unfortunately, many school-aged children are not receiving the love, attention, and discipline from their parents that is so desperately needed. As a result, many (not all) of today’s youths are disrespectful, lazy, and lack a quality work ethic. This environment has taken its toll on me. For many years Clayton County Public Schools has served me well. I have been loyal to this organization, and it, in turn, has been loyal to me. However, it appears that it is time for me to move on.
Please pardon any typographical errors. I am an imperfect teacher. If you see any mistakes, please bring them to my attention politely, and I will correct them quickly.
I love my content area. Who wouldn't want to be a teacher in the summer time?
Ill-mannered children and parents who don't have a clue.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Elementary School – June 9, 2016
This was my first time working in Clayton County at an elementary school....Although I had good support from the administrators, most teachers didn't. The students were as disrespectful as ever and they have absolutely no accountability. I've seen students hit teachers only to be sent back to that same teachers class with no punishment. We had a major security issue involving students and a weapon but it was covered up by the administrators and the kids were suspended but allowed back in school after 3 days. All this county cares about is accountability and being able to say they don't have discipline issues.
constant disrespect from students and no support from administrators
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – June 30, 2016
My job is very demanding, interesting, and rewarding at times. I work with a great team of co-workers and management. We work together to take care of the children that we drive to and from schools, and we even extend our personal care at times to make sure that they are okay outside of school. The hardest part of my job is making sure that I am a safe driver to pick up and take the kids home with all care and safety, and also being able to multi task without incident. The most enjoyable part is touching the lives of each child in a positive and informative way.
Autism Paraprofessional and Teaching Assistant (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – December 7, 2016
I thoroughly enjoyed my time with Clayton County Schools. The elementary school I worked in was a community based learning institution where the students were mostly all from that area. The teachers excelled in educating the students and I thrived there.

Special Education Teacher Interrelated (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – November 15, 2016
If you do not love children and are not patient don't teach, but for those of us that do. Its a humbling and enriching profession. Clayton county offers fair pay, concern administrative staff and opportunity for CEU's or professional development credit units.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – November 29, 2016
If you have an opportunity to work in another school district in the surrounding area, then do so. District overworks staff; staff underpaid; too political; district doesn't seem to hold parents or students accountable; most often staff often blamed for declining test scores
Driver (Former Employee) – Jonesboro, GA – January 6, 2017
I loved working this job and would consider going back if my business venture does not pan out. It was great being around the children, and helping them everyday. The most enjoyable part of the job was interacting with the children and the different personalities.
