Hard working staff; management upheaval
Community Relations Officer (Former Employee) – Stockton, CA – May 31, 2017
SUSD can be a great place to work. However, as a public school system in an economically depressed inner city, it has its challenges. For example, many of its 35,000 students are poor, and there are numerous languages spoken in the homes. Despite dedicated staffers, most schools struggle to keep pace with increasingly demanding state and national learning expectations. Principals at the schools do a yeoman's job, and are the real heroes of the district. The district office works hard to keep the vast ship (55 schools, 4,000 employees) afloat, but a revolving door of top administrators seems to provide little in the way of organizational stability.
