Pros

Holidays, Weekends and Summers off Although you might work a 9-5 day seems less hetic once students and teachers leave.(ironic)

Cons

APS does not believe in teamwork and you get used as a sacrificial tool when someone is trying to save theirself. Higher ups don't follow protocol or rules don't exist in their world.

Advice to Management

It should be about the children not about your resume.

    Pros

    The seasonal breaks are great and most of the employees are sincere about providing excellent service for APS students.

    Cons

    The politics and the current leadership's mentality hinder the progress of the district. This affects employee morale and leads to quality personnel leaving their positions. There also many outdated and antiquated processes that need to be improved.

    Advice to Management

    Ask your staff what would make things better and more efficient. Then actually put the good ideas into practice.
