    District Administration review

    Director (Former Employee) Lawrence, KS

    ProsAlways changing, never boring, be ready to change mid-stream of a new direction

    ConsNot much advancement opportunities, people skills are lacking

    Advice to Senior ManagementLook at the history to see who is still there and why some have been asked to leave.

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    I was a teacher with LPS.

    Teacher - Interrelated Resource (Former Employee) Lawrence, KS

    ProsThe city has much to offer. It is in a great location with many activities and events. Great restaurants, entertainment, sporting events, etc. There is something for everyone.

    ConsThere is very little meaningful collaboration offered at the district level. Staff is generally talked down to by administration in a demeaning manor.

    Advice to Senior ManagementConsider listening to expertise of staff and giving them credit for their knowledge, professionalism, and education.

    No, I would not recommend this company to a friend

    Overall a satisfactory experience, but some things could be improved

    Paraeducator (Former Employee) Lawrence, KS

    ProsFully paid health insurance for full-time employees, some great colleagues, plenty of holidays and breaks when the students are not in school, state-wide retirement program, workday ends earlier than a traditional office

    ConsSome (not all) upper management unconcerned about the working condition of lower-level employees, support for employees with workplace concerns could improve, poor attitude from some licensed teachers toward paraeducators

    Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend
