I have been working at Jefferson County Schools (Colorado) full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

I believe that if you get into the right school, this can be a rewarding place to work

Cons

Principals have too much power; employees are not valued for their professional skills and knowledge

Advice to Management

The power structure needs work. Community sups should spend more time making sure there is consistency across schools and principals are accountable to employees, so that it truly can be "all about kids" and not all about power.

    I have been working at Jefferson County Schools (Colorado) part-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working with students in the most rewarding thing about working at Jefferson County Schools. One-on-one interaction, aiding in their education, and watching them grow, both intellectually but as individuals is the best and most rewarding aspect of working for Jeffco Schools. The school district as a whole is a very positive environment

    Cons

    Unfortunately, being an Education Assistant, the hours in public education and the wages are limited. People tend to think that teachers and EA's chose to do this job because they "can't do something else," or they just want the summers off. Most educators actually end up working well over their "scheduled time," and invest their own money to make sure that students have what they need to be successful.

    Advice to Management

    Try to increase wages of the teachers and education assistants who are actually working with the students rather than the upper levels of the district administration.
