HCPS is not a terrible school county, but like most school districts in the area it really struggles to support its employees.
HCPS used to help pay for its employees to take classes. Last I checked their compensation amounted to about half of one class.
Also, if you want to transfer to another school, when you're a current teacher you have a window of a few months from when the jobs are posted to when you have to resign your contract. After that you cannot be considered for a position because you are under contract. That means if you have not had an interview basically between February and the end of May, you are stuck in your position for another year, or you have to not continue your contract and risk not having a job in the fall.
Lastly, instead of training new/struggling teachers, most administration focuses on creating more work for struggling teacher, through data collection, accountability pieces, and evaluations. Obviously evaluation is important, but the schools and teachers that need the most help seem to drown in data collection instead of helping actually teach the kids.
Lots of schools to choose from. Some are excellent
County is not very helpful with education and job advancement of employees, Some schools are poorly supported
