I worked at Hinds County School District as a contractor

Pros

The kids are great! They make coming to work worthwhile. Some co-workers are incredibly helpful and clearly dedicated to their work and their students. Good feeling of community.

Cons

Central office makes some decisions I and others don't agree with. The administration isn't as transparent as it could be. Administration makes a lot of decisions that it doesn't follow through with.

Advice to Management

Listen to the teachers. They have an incredible amount of knowledge and ideas. Stay calm under pressure and be firm, but admit mistakes. Be humble.

Hinds County School District has some amazing teachers! There are also some teachers who need more guidance and mentorship to navigate the trials of the classroom. For the most part, our experiences with teachers have been positive and conducive to learning for my children. The issue facing Hinds County School District is that the administrators for the district and individual schools are trying to hold on to what the district was in the past. We have the potential to be greater than we've ever been but we don't want to acknowledge that the district makeup has changed significantly. Administrators and district officials don't seem to recognize who they are currently serving. It is certainly not the demographics of the past and we must admit that and work towards being more culturally aware and embracing who we are at this current moment.
Hinds County School District is an average school district in my opinion. I would like to see students get prepared for college in the future. The school district lightly addresses important things such as the ACT or SAT,which is very disappointing. There isn’t great security,and there is a 50/50 chance of getting in a class that you’ll actually learn in. Other than that, I loved the experience!
