    I worked at Fayette County Board of Education full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some of the teachers and staff are truly there for the love of educating and helping students.
    Loved the students and getting to know them and watch them grow and mature

    Cons

    County office is very top heavy. Administrators can be condescending and micro manage. 4 schools were closed and hundreds laid off when the Superintendent and Board of Education asked for alternative cost saving measures from employees and the community and then did not implement any of the suggestions that could have saved jobs and not compromised the education of our children.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Listen to your employees and constituents. The level of education and morale or the remaining employees will decrease significantly this year because sound advice and suggestions were ignored.

    Pros

    I love children, you're influencing lives and educating, it's exhausting, but FUN! And it's a great place for me to use my talents and abilities.

    Cons

    It's exhausting and sometimes the behavior problems students can wear you out. Not just those, though...sometimes because we care SO MUCH about our students, it breaks our hearts to see them struggle the way they do at such a young age...and of course, sometimes it does seem that the money could be better.....but it really is not about that.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Have the board of education changed every few years instead of having the same people/mindsets for decades.

    Pros

    The people are great and willing to work together to get the job done. Benefits are great especially all of the time off.

    Cons

    Fayette county is the lowest paying BOE in the Atlanta Metro area. While they want to enforce a dress code they don't assist the employees with uniforms or pay to purchase acceptable clothes.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Purchase shirts for drivers and restore the pay back to the point it was before the 4% reduction of a year ago. It'll still be lower than any other Metro Atlanta school district.

    Pros

    Benifits package sick leave and personal & vacation

    Cons

    too many chiefs and not enough workers

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    at times there are reasons to need overtime so it should be budgeted for all areas not just the stipends for a few . have principals treat all workers with respect give them guidlines on how to deal with workers. have all workers treated the same and same displinary measure with out regard to ethnic back ground .
