I worked at Stonington Public Schools full-time (More than a year)
Salary is good and budget is good.
Powerful click and backstabbing, culture of intimidation, the town votes down the budget more often than not. If they can hire someone for less, they will find a way to get rid of you and it won't be pleasant.
Advice to Management
Stop creating a hostile work environment. If you want something open an honest dialog rather than harass and intimidate. We are not mindreaders.
