    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Communication could be improved on many levels, so that newer employees have a better understanding of how to solve problems within the system. An organizational chart distributed during orientation would go a long way toward this.

    Pros

    See kids as individuals, not as statistics. Fosters emotional learning. Offer great after school programs and intervention support throughout the day. Kind to staff and students.

    Cons

    Not enough curriculum or support around pushing reading/writing growth. Too much time in the afternoon spent on English Language Development, rather than whole-class instruction.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Less staff meetings during the day (more after school), 25 minutes of daily ELD instead of 45 minutes of daily ELD.
