Bus Driver (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – March 20, 2017
JCPS is a great place to work! I have learned a lot and look forward to applying it in my future endeavors. The management is great, the people are great to work with and the school administrators do what they can to help you. The pay is ok and its difficult to have to find a job just for the summer.
pay and too much time off which is difficult on bills
Very great place to work for and i love working with kids, place of work was like family.

Custodian (Former Employee) – Van Hoose – February 22, 2017
During my time there, it was a good experience, though some of the management could be, a bit out there. Indecisive, not sure of what was coming from one day to the next. Employees were friendly, easy to get along with. Summer cleaning, moving class rooms and offices.
Benifits and the ability to work on your own and at your own speed.
This district does not value or respect students with disabilities, particularly students who are Deaf!
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Whea – February 6, 2017
I moved across two states to be employed with Jeffco and my experience in teaching there was a complete nightmare! Not because of the students but because of the horrible administration and how they negatively treat their employees!
No leadership, total lack of concern for special education students, treats SpecialEd teachers badly
Speech Language Pathologist (Current Employee) – Lakewood, CO – January 30, 2017
If you love working with kids you will love this job. Every school is different, but my experience has been great with each of my schools. The district works very hard to provide current training and support to SLPs. I have had a good experience at Jeffco.
Instructor (Former Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 21, 2016
A great company to work for, I just wish I would get compensated more. Besides the pay everything is what I thought it would be. It's a struggle some days but those kids cheer me up and keep me motivated to give my all everyday.
ELEMENTARY SCHOOL EDUCATOR (Current Employee) – Louisville, KY – December 3, 2016
When I first began teaching 18 years ago, I thought things would have to get better if we wanted to successfully educate children. However, it has not only NOT gotten better, it seems that the administration is only interested in collecting data to give the appearance that children are being educated. Learning takes a back seat to image. This applies to students and teachers. If you are truly interested in educating our youth avoid the bureaucracy and cronyism that has permeated this district! I am truly heartbroken by the seemingly lack of interest and concern when it comes to our children's education.
Work life balance, bureaucracy, poor communication and project management
