    I have been working at South Bend Community School full-time (more than 5 years)

    Pros

    The staff and administration at the school level are excellent to work with. Everyone pitches in to help in some very challenging situations.

    Cons

    The student body has several social issues. When a staff works with a parent it frequently becomes apparent that the issues come from household culture. District level administration is wary to follow their progressive discipline polices.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Following your student body discipline policies, it will create a better learning environment for your students and attract more education focused students to your district.

    I have been working at South Bend Community School full-time (more than 8 years)

    Pros

    There seems to be many opportunites for training. The district tries to provide additional earning opportunities for staff like taking advantage of extracurricular activites and private grants,

    Cons

    Many programs and iniatives create busy work and large paper work loads. Many are not effective or not given enough time to take hold. Senior administration is not effective in producing policies that create positive educational environments.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Take a strong classroom level look on how to support staff in building positive education environments,
