I worked at Lawrence Public School USD 497 full-time

Pros

The city has much to offer. It is in a great location with many activities and events. Great restaurants, entertainment, sporting events, etc. There is something for everyone.

Cons

There is very little meaningful collaboration offered at the district level. Staff is generally talked down to by administration in a demeaning manor.

Advice to Management

Consider listening to expertise of staff and giving them credit for their knowledge, professionalism, and education.
