    Pros

    A teachers schedule will give you a lot of time off, including all major hollidays. The teachers are mostly caring and support each other.

    Cons

    Building and district leadership is questionable and too much emphasis is placed on assessment scores. Support is questionable from district and building leaders and the teachers are not supported by their administrators. Image is far too important.

    Advice to Management

    Support the teachers, be more visible, eliminate fear of not earning AYP by downplaying the assessments importance, hold all teachers, administrators, parents, and students to the same fair standard (don't play favorites).

    I have been working at Blue Valley Unified School District full-time

    Pros

    They have a lot of resources and are one of the more well off districts in the state. They have a ton of professional development opportunities and really encourage teachers to take advantage. Kids are good despite a bit of entitlement. Overall a good district to work for

    Cons

    They're a bit like a business. What District Office says is what goes even if you disagree. Teachers don't have a strong voice and are paid the least in the Johnson County area.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to your teachers' input more often and more seriously. At a building level we do a good job, but at the district level it's awful
