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 Management

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 a 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 Management

    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

    Pros

    Helping kids is the main focus for the summer. And getting to learn how a public charter school works from the inside is always a plus.

    Cons

    Not always organized when it comes to summer programs. Most of the summer felt like "we'll deal with it when we get there" kind of methodology.

    Advice to Management

    Organize the student employment process before the summer starts.
