Educational Assistant 1 (Former Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – August 6, 2018
Working in the educational system can be very rewarding and extremely difficult at the same time. You need excellent administration that has you back and is 100% there for the kids, which was unfortunately not the case many times.
Substitute Teacher (Current Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – August 13, 2018
As a Substitute I was a contract employee. I only worked when I wanted to which for me was perfect for that season in my life. Very competitive when it came to finding and obtaining full time employment.
Preschool Educational Assistant (Current Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – July 16, 2018
I loved working with my co-workers and the class environment was great but the administration did not listen to us as a whole. I wish they would have taken our comments and asking for assistance seriously.
IT TECHNICIAN, LEVEL 1 (Former Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – July 4, 2018
My position was located in a quiet shop where work was delivered to me. Lots of time to focus to get the job done quickly and accurately. Peers in other sections of the IT department were friendly and always willing to be a resource for troubleshooting.
Security Specialist (Current Employee) – Highlands Ranch, CO – June 22, 2018
In my position, it seemed like we didn't receive a lot of support from our administration. Most of the admin didn't seem too concerned about discipline and this propagated undesirable behavior and attitude from some students. Very frustrating too much of the time.
Was provided with free lunch
Some students were allowed to get away with bad behavior
Math and Science Teacher (Former Employee) – Gardnerville, NV – June 15, 2018
The area is beautiful. I enjoyed living and working there. The schools are great. The pay could be better. Teachers don't earn what they should. There are many ways to move around the district if you want.
7th Grade Mathematics Teacher (Current Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – June 13, 2018
I went into teaching thinking there would be a good work/life balance. Instead I found myself working every night and weekend during the school year in order to keep up with everything I had to do. I also purchased numerous supplies using my own money to keep my classroom running properly.
Purchasing Specialist (Former Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – May 22, 2018
Employment varies as it is a large organization. Like all places, it depends on the people you work with. Mostly I worked with really great people. There were others that were not good to work with. Either because of their work ethic (or lack there of) or just character.
Programmer/Analyst (Former Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – May 17, 2018
Different dynamics in IT. New leadership. Changed from Oracle environment to opensource "free" software. While Oracle is still used for some applications written with application, the Web site is driven by PHP and other opensource tools. A lot depends on the direct manager.
Good benefits and time off
Not much room for advancement. What you start with is where you will be for a long time.
Physical Education Teacher (Former Employee) – Castle Rock, CO – May 13, 2018
for two years I was the lead in my department of 1. I had was allowed to develop my program however I saw fit, within reason. Leadership did not show much interest in my program and did not provide any assistance. Felt alone. with I had a partner to work with.
