    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Sioux Falls School District No 49-5 full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Great students, pretty good staff. Pay is appropriate for South Dakota, technology resources are above average. Working with students in this district is very positive.

    Cons

    Administration and Head Offices are often divorced from the teachers on the ground. Since it is a large district, its easy for one hand to not know what the other hand is doing.

    Advice to Management

    Continue to have leadership see things in the classroom, and make more developed relationships with teachers. Be more open to change, and to letting teachers teach students, rather than to a test.
