    I have been working at Andover Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Excellent supportive staff and great hours

    Payroll for assistants is terrible. They double deduct insurance payments for the last 2 months of school. It is horrible. And like working for free for the last 2 months.

    I worked at Andover Public Schools full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    The schedule i worked, was great because it was the same hours as my sons scheduled day. So i was off when he was out and and had no work when he had no school.

    Cons

    It was located far from my hometown, unfamiliar and the room mate i was sharing a house with was unreliable.

    Advice to Management

    Give your new employees the benefit of the doubt..allow them to learn their way are the ropes before you criticize them.

    I worked at Andover Public Schools part-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    like young adults school hours are great

    Cons

    Lack of discipline for students. Monitors are hired at 19 hours pe week and no more. won't let you work dances or games. Police officer is useless. Hangs around all day and won't intervene with fights and things he should. No backing of administration for monitors. the only reason their there is to have someone to blame if a students gets hurt or worse to save their own overpaid careers.

    Advice to Management

    Hire two full time professionals. One male one female 38 hours per week. Put the police officer back on the street where he belongs. The response time in Andover is like one and one half minutes to the high school. Instill discipline in the kids and don 't cow tow to entitled parents just to make youre job easier. THATS YOUR"E JOB!

    I have been working at Andover Public Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very supportive administration who are always available to answer questions and assist in problem solving. Understand that teaching isn't an easy endeavor.

    Cons

    Benefits are poor. While KPERS is a great retirement system, the health insurance premiums are extremely high and the coverage is awful.

    Advice to Management

    Thanks

    Pros

    The students are highly motivated and goal-oriented. the staff members are like family and care very much about the students. our administrators have a handle on what is important and steer everyone in the right direction.

    Cons

    the state assessment tests leave little time for anything but on the nose teaching of certain subjects and stometimes forces teachers to teach to the tests. it is a shame to marshal learning in this manner.

    Advice to Management

    Try to involve parents more in the classroom and not so much in outside school activities. They need to truly understand the importance that lies in shepherding their children into becoming lifelong learners.
