Wanna be reading tutor (Former Employee) says"I have the diplomas necessary to earn the required 180 points for licensure. The problem lies with the School Board of Education, because all of my proof is online. I have to buy my diplomas, which I don't mind doing, but I don't have the money yet to do so. Richmond City schools has to suffer as a result. I need an advocate."
Teacher (Former Employee) says"RCPS has a ton of potential. It is a shame that Richmond lacks the necessary money to thrive. RCPS is a small school system that can be interesting to navigate."
Photographer (Current Employee) says"Richmond Public Schools, depending on what area, I would not send my child to their schools let alone work there again. Staff is underappreciated and mistreated. the children are mis-educated and everyone is fine with the fact our children aren't being taught."
Custodian Worker (Former Employee) says"R.P.S is good for people who needs a start in their career and build their life for a better future to move up from the point of not having anything. not for everyone but its a good start."
Bus Driver (Former Employee) says"The Director of Transportation is a Idiot! Other than that it could be a cool laid back environment. Pay is extremely low, and you cannot make it on this job alone!! Cons: none"
teacher (Former Employee) says"If you accept a job here, know what you are getting into. I am not talking about the kids. Cons: you will feel overworked and underappreciated most of the time"
Elementary Spanish Teacher (Former Employee) says"I would not recommend RPS to any one. I worked for RPS for a total of five years and I would not recommend working for this school system. It eats teachers for breakfast, lunch and dinner."
Teacher (Current Employee) says"My experience with RPS was okay when I first started working there. I was a first year teacher and the training they provided was not helpful. I leaned on other teachers and thankfully made it through my first year. I teach self contained and my biggest problem now are the aides in my room. I did not earn my Masters to babysit adults all day. They need to look into these behavior agencies. RPS needs to provide better training and get rid of behavior aides if you want to retain teachers. Cons: 1:1aides, lack of training"
Nutrition Worker (Former Employee) says"I enjoyed working at Rps for a short while. Once I noticed that I couldn't move up within the company it became draining. Working with children can have it's ups and downs. But u really enjoyed working with the students and my manager. Cons: No paid vacation, no over time, no advancement, no benefits"
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) says"None at this time. Cons: Unsaffe"
Teacher (Current Employee) says"This school system does not look out for the employee nor the students. Those in upper management tend to forget how it feels to be in the trenches with the students. You can not discipline students correct meaning no suspension so the students know this and act accordingly like there are no rules. The principals do not support the staff and everyone's morale is down the drain. Cons: No support from administration at all!"
Custodial Supervisor (Former Employee) says"It's the worst place to work adults will try to do everything in there power to make you look like a fool they are rude and disrespectful they only care about themselves Cons: The supervisor are the worst nasty people"
Teacher (Former Employee) says"No sense working for them if you are older or white or non Christian. They put up a good front but don’t buy it your job is never secure. Different rules for non whites. Work load is tedious and overwhelming."
Teacher (Former Employee) says"RPS does not take care of their employees. They play favorites in the HR department. They do not support employees with disabilities or illnesses ( they act as if illness is a burden on the district).They fire people who are committed and devoted. They allow others who have abused children keep their jobs because of their titles. RPS is not a good place to grow and learn as a teacher. It is extremely stressful. The children curse, are disrespectful, and even go as far as assaulting teachers and staff as early as age 5. I have been assaulted by students four times in the four years that I have been teaching ( I remind you-Elementary). Go to another district. Good teachers need support, love, and guidance. You will get lied on, left out, and stressed out in RPS. Cons: No support and a high level of stress"
inactive (Former Employee) says"Entirely too political. Lack compassion for staff and children. Staff and children are treated as if they are of little value. Teachers are under appreciated."
Teacher (Former Employee) says"RPS should focus more attention or a revision for employee training, behavior intervention for students, stress management for staff and increased support in the performing and visual arts classrooms."
Special Education Teacher (Former Employee) says"Administrators are awful people who do not care about the employees nor the students. Complaints are lodged to the superintendent with documentation of the mistreatment of teachers and staff and the result is the teachers are black listed and bullied further until they quit. Promotions are based on being in “clicks” and accepting being mistreated by the principals. Privacy is constantly violated regarding students and teachers."
Richmond community schools (Former Employee) says"The job isn't hard, it's dealing with the people. If they don't like you they will make you miserable until they get you to quit. Its extremely hostile and the bullying is horrible.Management knows of the problems they will "try" to fix them but they don't."
Teacher (Current Employee) says"Terrible place to work for. Does not value its employees or students. The management is awful and there is no clear direction for success. RPS has a lot of work to do!"
Teacher (Former Employee) says"Make sure you talk to someone there currently and proceed with caution. I loved my job but the School Board and Superintendent was not supportive when I needed them."
