    Pros

    People/staff are always nice and helpful. Very friendly and always happy to see you and talk to you. I enjoyed my time there.

    Cons

    Can't think of any. I did feel like the job involved more customer service to the students than actual education, but that's how the world works nowadays.

    Advice to Management

    Give more training to new employees. I felt like my training for computer aspect of the job was outdated. Perhaps self-resetting passwords to avoid having to change passwords every couple of months.

    Pros

    The salary is comparable to other districts within the area. There are numerous opportunities for staff development.

    Cons

    The district is run by a very small group of people who attend a specific religious congregation in the area. It is from this church that all of the administrators and district leaders are chosen. Make no mistake about it, this is not a meritocracy.

    Advice to Management

    Get with the times. This is no longer 1960. Allow the people within the district to choose a school board that is actually representative of the community.
