    When is the student and their parents held accountable for a child's education?

    Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

    Pros-New superintendent who is personable and readily listens to his employees/staff/community
    -Nice salary for teaching
    -Moving towards implementing more technology

    ConsThough not clearly stated, I receive a lot of pressure to get students to perform on standardized testing despite not having all the resources to truly prepare students for life beyond high school and for the new state-mandated test. The idea that making most learning team-based is NOT necessarily applicable nor sincere preparation for college.

    Advice to Senior ManagementAdvice: Campus leaders should lead by example. Too often, requests for information are made at the last minute, and the information requested isn't reviewed and feedback given for improvement. There are constant thinly veiled threats about connecting my job to student performance on a standardized test that was just released last year! Plus, there are not too many resources to tap into for practice for the test because it is so new. Although, I am told NOT to teach to a test.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company
