    Pros

    High expectations in regards to student achievement. Most school have a very safe work environment. The salaries are middle of the road.

    Cons

    High sense of entitlement amongst parents and students

    Advice to Management

    Let your administrators do their job. Very top down organization.

    Pros

    Working with kids brightens your day!

    Cons

    I've been working there for 9 years and went from 13.33/hr to 13.56/hr! No raises in pay!!
    Will never give you permanent postitions and will keep you part-time so they dont have to give you benefits!

    Advice to Management

    Be fair!

    Pros

    As a mental health intern it was a diverse experience under a well-structured training program for my Social Work graduate field work

    Cons

    Interns are filling the gap for a much needed lack of mental health workers - it would be great to see funding to place more mental health workers in the schools where services are so much needed

    Advice to Management

    Investment into the Programs that help provide more opportunity for mental health professionals within the district. Also training programs on diversity within the school population to the faculty as the school population is changing socioeconomically and culturally.

    Pros

    The benefits are great. The people at the district office are very nice and they have many professional development opportunities.

    Cons

    They do not clearly communicate important details to their employees. For instance, all new teachers automatically receive a lay off notice every March without warning. This is quite distressing when you believe you are doing a good job and you receive a letter warning you that your contract may not be renewed.

    Advice to Management

    Principals should tell their new teachers about this practice in advance so they do not freak out. The union could do a better job informing new employees of this policy.
