    Pros

    I felt very welcomed and supported by the Sp. Ed. Dept. while I worked there as a Speech language pathologist. The staff was kind and always willing to help each other when needed. My co-workers and supervisors were great to work with, easy to get along with. The distict provided CEUs and staff development relevant to my field of profession and kept us informed of current news, laws, etc. The schools I worked at were well organized. I would have stayed with the district, but needed to move out of town.

    Cons

    A lot of paperwork and documentation to do, but that's at any district now
