Mission: Mission Statement
The mission of Lake County Schools is to provide every student with individual opportunities to excel.
I worked at Lake County Public Schools full-time (More than 5 years)
Rewarding work in helping young people learn, lifelong relationships, great co-workers
Top heavy administration completely out of touch with reality of classroom teachers, benefits are ridiculously priced for families ($1000 per month!), terrible working conditions, and work-life balance, you're expected to give your all for very little in return. Administration is paid among the top 5% in the state, while teachers and staff are among the lowest 5%...this should tell you all you need to know about the priorities of Lake County Schools
Advice to Management
Clean house, invest money at the school level and trim the fat of bloated administration. Get rid of the nepotism the admin level that keeps poor performers in place.
I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Lake County Public Schools (Leesburg, FL).
I applied online through the county's online applications system and also emailed my resume directly to the principal. Within 3 weeks I received a call to come in. After interviewing, I received an offer via phone the same day. Interviews were formal, several scheduled for same day during summer. Usually lasted about 30 minutes and discussed your experience, background, educational philosophy and scenarios.
