    • "You want to change the school, but probably won't"

        Current Employee - High School Math Teacher 
        Doesn't Recommend

        I have been working at Adams County School District 14 full-time for more than 2 years

        Pros

        The kids are great. Freedom to teach how you want.

        Cons

        Absolutely no discipline ladder. The handbook was picked from many other districts so lacks consistency. Not much support from administration. You have to make a big deal out of something to get help. Their go to response is "did you call the parents?" Math curriculum follows beyond textbooks currently and has absolutely no clear pathway for the curriculum. In addition, you have t 54 minute periods and 1 90 minute period...

        Advice to Management

        Create a set discipline plan that enforces cell phone policy and backs up teachers. Use RTI and MTSS models to support teachers in the classroom.

        I worked at Adams County School District 14 full-time for more than 4 years

        Pros

        Great kids, great families, high pay

        Cons

        Dysfunctional central and school admin, distrust between all constituent groups, inept board

        Advice to Management

        Divide the district so the kids become part of better functioning systems. And when someone recommends that DPS is a better functioning system, there is a real problem.

          I worked at Adams County School District 14 full-time for more than 2 years

          Pros

          Great kids and families. Highly rewarding.

          Cons

          Constant change in management. Inexperienced principals implemented unproven methods. Lots of micromanagement. The staff that stays around are not innovative and lack interest in learning new methods of teaching. General Education teachers lack any kind of knowledge of special education.

          Advice to Management

          Invest in your teachers.

            Pros

            The school children are lovely. Working in public education can be very rewarding.

            Cons

            The district struggles with meeting state performance expectations. Leadership is inexperienced in addressing such needs with staff and community in joint decision-making.

            Pros

            Great community, Love the kiddos! Teacher colleagues were great too.

            Cons

            Administrators are a revolving door. From the top down there is always chaos. They implement new initiatives before the old ones have come to fruition.

            Advice to Management

            Find good principals and keep them. To many first-time administrators use Adams 14 as a stepping stone to launch their careers.
