    I have been working at Elkhart Community Schools full-time

    Pros

    I love being part of an educational setting and seeing the impact I have on the students. Building-level support is good.

    Cons

    The pay is incredibly low, and not at all competitive for the industry. The upper administration is not supportive at all.

    I worked at Elkhart Community Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Most people at the district level/HR office are friendly and helpful. Great overall community. Teachers know what's best for the students.

    Cons

    Highly unorganized. Superintendent wants to change up too many things at once. Superintendent and Board seem to have a hidden agenda and don't care for community input and are very cliquey. Health insurance is outrageous .

    Pros

    None none none none none

    Cons

    Insurance is shameful. The 2014 review looks amazing compared to today. I. Pay approximately 7500 a year for my family and have a 10,000 deductible. Could I get a better plan? Sure, I could pay 11000 a year and have a 6000 deductible for my family. Yes, I could have the luxury of paying 30 percent of my salary on health insurance plus more if I actually had to use it. Absolutely shameful.

    Pros

    Many programs that will benefit all students during their time in Elkhart Community Schools. Very good schools and many great, hard working, and dedicated teachers.

    Cons

    Does not prepare students for life after high school, especially when they get to college. They could do a better job at this.
