I have been working at Jefferson County Schools (Colorado) full-time (More than 10 years)

Pros

Below the BOE, there is a deep and honest desire to do right by the children in our schools. Innovation never stops.

Cons

New BOE majority has no background in education and therefore lacks the understanding of how funds should be allocated. Employees have taken wage reductions (3%) and have not received a pay increase in 5 years. No contribution to 401K. Outrageous cost to employees for health benefits. After forcing a very successful Superintendent out early, they now want someone with a military background to lead the District. Since when did children in Pre-K through 12th grade become soldiers????

Advice to Management

Leading a school district of 84,000 kids and 12,000 employees has no room for politics. Instead of trying to satisfy the extremists, please focus on what children need, listen to those who came before you and learn about topics before making decisions.
