REACH CORPS COORDINATOR (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 12, 2018
I love where I work. The staff is great, the collaboration between departments and management is wonderful. I was new to this part of social services and they made me feel very welcome. The hardest part of my job is not being able to help a student or a family that is in need.
Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 9, 2018
Great place to work for a bus driver. Excellent benefits and good wages. Environment can be stressful but always challenging, never boring. Only work 185 days a year so it is a plus but also a minus in the annual income department.
ECE Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 4, 2018
I really enjoyed my time with JCPS. I made some close friendships with coworkers and developed strong bonds with the students I had the privilege of working with. I will say that as a college graduate possessing a bachelors degree, I feel as if the pay was very low and almost impossible to live off of without getting a second form of employment. I learned to be flexible, that communication in a workplace is vital, and transparency is key to a happy healthy work life.
Teacher (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – February 1, 2018
It all depends on the principal and admin. I worked at one of the lowest schools in the district where the principal was new and young and didn't support the teachers at all. AP wasn't any better. But, who else is going to go to a school with the lowest scores anyway? Kids ran the school; expectations very low with no real accountability. I feel like the school was run with an attitude of "these kids have been through a lot in their young lives," so we have to consider that. They had been through a lot but not holding them or parents accountable for major behavior issues, only enables further poor behavior. Not enough resources...human bodies to help. Teachers in at least 2 meetings per week, sometimes three. Too data driven.
Summers, Spring break, benefits
Highly stressful, no personal life no voice, loads of paperwork, unrealistic expectations from admin and district, feeling helpless and devalued.
Community Data Specialist (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 31, 2018
the school system is unsurprisingly a huge bureaucracy. change is slow, and there is a lack of incentive to be innovative. there are many challenges students face, which do not receive the attention they need.
Great opportunity for a student. I was grateful for the opportunity.
Child Care Assistant (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 16, 2018
It was awesome, the staff was fun friendly and gave me lots of food. This also gave Mr the interest in serving others. This was my second job actually and the schedule was perfect seeing as I was a teenage parent.
ASSISTANT TEACHER (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 13, 2018
I Monitored Children on the School Bus and taught them in the classroom. I enjoy learning from the Children and Teaching them as well. The staff was difficult to work with. It seemed like I was trying to interfere with their program. I worked with other Teachers who were only there for a pay check. They did not care about the Children.
I have always enjoyed learning and teaching.
The pay check was more of a concern for my co-workers.
Home School Coordinator/Teacher (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – January 8, 2018
My job was educating and mainstreaming above and below averaged high school students. I provided current holiday activities, invited guest speakers concerning current events and topics to educate students about diversified issues in their lifestyles.
I loved my students from 9th to 12th grades in high school.
Dance Coach/Para Educator/Student Teacher (Former Employee) – Lakewood, CO; Littleton, CO; Golden, CO – December 31, 2017
I started at Jeffco Schools as a coach then as a paraprofessional. As I moved along with my education I always choose Jeffco Schools to obtain my field experience hours. I loved working for Jeffco, and I loved the people that I worked with. It is a great district!
Teacher (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 14, 2017
Working for this company was not what I expected teaching to be like. I wanted to help kids. I wanted to teach science. Instead what I ended up doing was trying to keep the kids under control with little to no backing from the administration. When children refused to do any work and were on path to fail, I was told to pass them anyway so the paperwork would be less.
Administrative Assistant/Clerk (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 28, 2017
Working for Jcps has been an adventure. Benefits are great but it some of their processes for hire don’t make any sense at times. I don’t agree with everything the board decides, but i do appreciate each and every person I work with. Just don’t see much of a window for growth here.
Bus Driver Trainer/Driver (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 20, 2017
Wont back their Bus drivers, the kids run the show and they are dangerous. Too much favoritism though its a union job. A lot of drama between the drivers can get out of hand and ridiculous. enough said.
Instructional Assistant (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – November 20, 2017
A great place to work if you are a teacher or administrator. No advancement for those who are classified employees. Too much focus on the test scores and less on how we can really make a difference. No recognition if you are not certified.
