    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Great colleagues, parent involvement, opportunities to make real differences in the life of others

    Cons

    Rigid hierarchy in administration oversight and increasing bureaucratic paper work. Recent state and federal mandated legislation in evaluation of employees is a complex matrix in which excellence ratings are so cumbersome many great employees are rated mere.y as proficient. Health benefits severely downgraded pay vs workload comparative to business world substandard. Increasing overemphasis on test scores and yearly growth gains are focused on educators and schools rather than students.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Allow more collegial consensus decision making. Great school and district support for student discipline.

    I worked at Coweta County School System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    The best reason that I can list would definitely be working with the students. Sure, you have some that really test your patience level, but there are so many more that truly touched my heart and became such a special part of my everyday life.

    Cons

    You see first hand that there are employees that do not care about their job or the students that are with them everyday. Those employees really make the job more difficult and not having higher management not see this is really a disappointment. Some employees are given many chances when they make a mistake and then some are terminated and not given any fair chance at all.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management needs to realize that no one employee should be treated any differently than another.

    I worked at Coweta County School System

    Pros

    The system is small but growing. There is still an opportunity to know your superintendent.

    Cons

    The system has had some areas of instability over the years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The school system should keep principals in place for a minimum of five years providing they are meeting performance standards.

    I have been working at Coweta County School System full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Summers and holidays off. It's great having my kids days off.

    Cons

    I am currently working a two person job...overworked...no pay raise in 6 years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Need to re-evaluate pay scale. Pay scale should be different from elementary, middle, and high school. The school system needs to even out the work load. Some positions are only busy at the beginning of the school year. Some positions that work more days after the school year is out have absolutely nothing to do. Some employees have a light work load while others are overloaded all year!
