    Pros

    Benefits and days off. Teachers are paid for 10 months so they have many days off. You accrue sick days each month. Plenty if professional development available for career advancement.

    Cons

    Too many politics going on. Health insurance keeps getting more expensive each year and the deductibles higher. The union is expensive. The evaluation system does not help morale.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Each department has it's own agenda. Communication is poor. Improvement is needed in these. Rethink evaluation system.

    Pros

    state of the art technology, involved parents, best practices, staff development, very high standards,

    Cons

    competition not collaboration between collegues, parents request teachers which is difficult for new teachers, hidden agenda of administration, favoritism shown to staff members, district employs many family members and friends of administration whoare all given preferential treatment and not held to the same standards, little evaluation or feedback, no chance for promotion, parents can be very demanding. This is not a district to work in if you are new. It is definitely sink or swim.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This is an administration that rules without concern for staff, morale, even students interests, Favored status goes to families who contribute large amounts of money.
