Great place to work... if you don't have bills, need insurance or expect a reference!

Pros

Great management, positive attitudes, quality teachers

Cons

Pay (half of district)/ insurance (2x district) / Company has a no referral policy

Advice to Management

You will never retain a strong staff the way you pay. It feels like a teacher farm.

    Pros

    helping students one on one

    Cons

    improper ratios of minoroty groups and impoverished.
    Seems like a dumping ground for districts to rid reg ed campuses of froblem students whom they can not meet their needs as required by law.'
    There is far less oversight for OES to abide by the same laws as a school district.
    Even when they do have SPED teachers it is so they know how to fill out the paperwork properly. They DO not provide all the services for SPED students as required by law.
    Everything the other reviews said are true.
    I have noticed how Georgia has opened a slew of new centers with LOTS of SPED teachers and security gaurds..Seri.ously should be checked out for disticts using these as a dumping ground.

    Advice to Management

    Value your staff.
    Abide by federal laws regarding civil rights.

    Pros

    Great opportunity to help students meet goals and stay in school. Great Opportunity to work one on one with students who close others out.

    Cons

    No support from upper management and shortage of much needed supplies.
    No up to date textbooks and little emphasis placed on testing.
    No pay increases or recognition for quality work. Time is spent dodging trivial write ups by inexperienced directors trying to cover their tracks and keep their jobs.
    Low achievers and special needs students are underestimated and overlooked.
    High turnover rate, because management selects people for the short term and later fires them.

    Advice to Management

    Stop placing dollar signs on students and place the right people in the right positions.Just because an employee looks the part on paper iy does not mean that they are right for the position.
