I have been working at Friendship Public Charter School

Pros

Technology integration is SUPERB! Access to current and latest technology is strong and evident on all levels of the organization -- from the classrooms to the executive leadership team.

Cons

Poor leadership; ever-shifting priorities and direction; lack of follow thru by leadership; lots of plan no follow thru or execution of the plan; focus is on enrollment not student needs

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Choice 2 or 3 priorities; over communicate the priorities; hold ALL levels of employees accountable for outcomes -- not just teachers or "outcasts".

    I have been working at Friendship Public Charter School full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    Some incredible educators and students. Many people work beyond the requirements and hours

    Cons

    Leadership focuses on what is hot. Staff doesn't get sufficient praise or credit for good work, but quickly get thrown under the bus as needed.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    FOCUS. Stop jumping to what is 'hot' at the moment. Support your employees. Make them want to stay instead of burning them out. Remember that the focus is the children, not good press or empty data for a quick buck.

    I worked at Friendship Public Charter School full-time (more than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a core group of people on the management team who will do whatever it takes to accomplish goals. They collaborate well with each other and have a high degree of trust and mutual respect.

    Cons

    The leadership team is incredibly entrepreneurial, which can make it difficult for more junior staff to keep up with a rapidly changing organization. Teachers sometimes feel frustrated because things constantly change. There is a deep bench of longtime executives who have the ear of the CEO, which can make it hard for new staff to have their voices heard. Outside of the core team, there are some individuals who seem to coast by on relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Focus more and work on over-communicating your objectives and your progress.
