I have been working at Lyon County School District full-time for more than 5 years

Pros

Co workers are good. Teachers are friendly and many have been there a long time. Students are basically good kids, No gang problems, very rural feel about the community and schools within the district.

Cons

Administration is not supportive of employees. Uses favortism to choosee employees, and hostile to those not within the umbrella of favorites. Very self serving motives of school administration. Will not support decisions of teachers, if it is something that they have to have a backbone to enforce. Rules have double standards, with random selection of who they apply to. Salaries are low, pay has been on freeze for years. Gender bias, with male sports coaches given special favortism. Low qualifications and knowledge base of higher level admin, and all employees are subject to scare tactics every year in regards to job cuts.

    Pros

    Lyon County is a small school district where everybody knows everybody, which is a good thing if you are part of the "in" crowd or in a position of power within the district. The students are generally well-behaved, and most still at least try to do what is asked of them. Most of the teachers are inspiring, generous, and cooperative.

    Cons

    While there, expect everyone to be polite for the most part, and maybe even friendly, just don't be surprised if you suddenly go from star employee to pink-slipped for no apparent reason.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    If you do not want to be surrounded by "yes" men/women who secretly gloat over your failings, drop your office politics and just focus on doing what is in the best interests of students and the future of the county. Examine your priorities. Really examine, stop fooling yourself that what you have been doing is anything real in that regard. You are surrounded by people who parrot what they think you want to hear, then laugh behind your back. Anyone who has the nerve to tell the emperor that he is naked--they get kicked to the proverbial curb while the "yes" men/women continue to snicker behind the emperor's back about his nudity. There are a handful of passive-aggressive bullies on your staff who delight in the downfall of others, and the belittling of others.
