“The teachers and staff in CCISD are committed to the success and emotional well-being of every student. Our employees understand the impact they have on our community,” said Dr. Casey O’Pry, assistant superintendent of human resources, in a Sept. 7 district media release. “The district continues to pursue and retain the very best team to serve our more than 40,000 learners.”
Forbes partnered with market research company Statista to compile the third annual list by surveying 80,000 Americans working for businesses with at least 500 employees, per the release. Anonymous surveys were conducted on a rolling basis from October to June.
CCISD, which is among the top 30 largest school districts in the state, provides for its staff through professional learning opportunities, which are a key pillar of success within the district's own accountability system, per the release. The district publishes an annual community-based accountability report; the 2019-20 report can be viewed here.
“Effective instruction begins with recruiting, hiring and developing outstanding team members,” Superintendent Dr. Eric Williams said in the release. “This recognition by Forbes is a testament to the culture within our high-performing education system and the work of our 5,300 employees.”
