District Research

Make It A Great Match

There are almost 14,000 school districts in the United States, and nearly 700 in New York State alone. Finding the right district is more than simply finding those with a job. There are many factors to consider as you search for the right "fit." Urban vs. rural, school size, student demographics, multicultural environment, salary and benefits, costs of housing and relocation-these are just a few of the things to keep in mind as you explore opportunities.

Furthermore, you can often uncover important facts about a district that will be important to your decision. For example, does the school prefer you to live in the district? Does your educational philosophy mesh with the district's? What can you uncover about the superintendent or technological innovation?
The links below will help you conduct the research you need as you consider your options.
