Suggestions for improvement

  • They need more IT people, a dedicated person in each school. They also need better transition guidance for students post high school in lower socioeconomic areas.

What I like about the company

They try very hard to keep their educators trained and equipped with the most up to date knowledge. The people I worked with were positive. I felt appreciated.

What I dislike about the company

The maintenance for technology was horribly slow due to lack of human capital to meet the needs of the system. This is very debilitating to classrooms since most of them are currently dependent on technology for their curriculum.

Suggestions for improvement

  • The improvements I would make would begin with terminating employees who are not performing well instead of promoting them. Employees who are not benefiting the students, culture and environment of the school should not be allowed to remain at that school. The union shouldn't be allowed to protect an employee who is not promoting the school's best interests......the students.

What I like about the company

Caddo schools is a great place to work. It is a place where one can move up in one's career. As an administrator, I have the support needed to run an elementary school. I don't agree with some decisions made by the district, but overall, I do believe that the district has the best interests of the students in mind. The current superintendent and most members of his cabinet are moving the district in the right direction.

What I dislike about the company

The district appears to have a "good ole boy" system in that some employees move up quicker because of who they know and not because of their abilities and/or experiences. The pay scale for employees (excluding those who hold the highest positions) is below the average across the country.

  • Have a more supportive and encouraging environment...a pat on the back or a thank you would be nice.

What I like about the company

Working with students can be rewarding. Some faculty and staff are great and will become great friends.

What I dislike about the company

Lack of support and encouragement, plays favorites, after hour work without pay.

Suggestions for improvement

  • smaller class sizes, less attitude from administration, more organization, less procrastinating

What I like about the company

Caddo is a great place to work for. There are opportunities for growth and advancement, if desire. We have a great retirement program.

What I dislike about the company

too much politics, to much of teacher's compensation pay based on student's work ethics.
