    Pros

    This is both a con and a pro depending on your particular outlook: Site-based leadership Each school's director has a lot of ability and control to lead their specific model.

    I have been working at Mapleton Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Okay pay for teaching compared to other districts.

    Cons

    Combat pay. Kids are disrespectful district wide. Good old boy club for admin and district level. Administration is afraid to suspend because they don’t want To look bad in the eyes of CDE. Kids have no consequences for poor behavior .

    Advice to Management

    Hire stronger directors and get the fake admins out of your buildings.
