Negative Outlook

I have been working at Lyon County School District full-time (More than 5 years)

Pros

Co workers are good. Teachers are friendly and many have been there a long time. Students are basically good kids, No gang problems, very rural feel about the community and schools within the district.

Cons

Administration is not supportive of employees. Uses favortism to choosee employees, and hostile to those not within the umbrella of favorites. Very self serving motives of school administration. Will not support decisions of teachers, if it is something that they have to have a backbone to enforce. Rules have double standards, with random selection of who they apply to. Salaries are low, pay has been on freeze for years. Gender bias, with male sports coaches given special favortism. Low qualifications and knowledge base of higher level admin, and all employees are subject to scare tactics every year in regards to job cuts.

    Pros

    It's a good place to work. Even you have to follow a program you always have place to develope new ideas.

    Cons

    Some of the people in the management don't care about the kids they just care about their careers. Only a few.

    Advice to Management

    They need to have better comunication with the teachers and all personal no just the school's principals and not to creat a anviroment where schools from the same city see each other like enemies.
