    Fellow staff members are excellent.

    Administration is out of touch with staff and effective methods to achieve maximum results.

    Recognize that small districts cannot run like large districts without sacrificing the productivity of the staff.

    I worked at Fort Osage R1 School District full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great leadership at Fire Prairie Upper Elementary School. Everyone is considered a member of the team.

    Cons

    I really can't think of anything.

    Pros

    Overall the kids were sweet and loving anywhere. Buckner always had a bunch of huggers.

    Cons

    Elm Grove has an interesting principal and I pity the soul that works with ANY grade level there.

    I have been working at Fort Osage R1 School District full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    Working in a school you get holidays off and extended winter and spring breaks. Fort Osage is great school district with wonderful co-workers in all buildings.

    Cons

    As a paraprofessional, you do not get paid in the summer. Only those who get salary pay get paid in the summer. It's hard to support yourself and/or your family when you don't get paid enough. Sometimes paraprofessionals are overlooked and not treated as equals to teachers.
