    I have been working at Grand Island Public Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    GIPS is supportive of their teaching staff by offering excellent leadership, professional development and encouraging a cohesive approach in educating all students.

    Cons

    The district only pays $625.00 (2016-2017) for health benefits if including spouse or familiy coverage. They pay full coverage for single. Most small districts pay full coverage for spouse or family.

    I worked at Grand Island Public Schools part-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    This is a great company to work for. The new management is doing a great job and the work environment is very positive. I would recommend this company for someone starting off a career in hospitality.

    Cons

    Not a lot of freedom regarding time and I didn't find much growth opportunity. I felt like there should have been better customer service give to the clients. The training in this area was minimal.

    Pros

    Very competitive pay scale
    Respect for teachers and all workers
    Opportunity for growth

    Cons

    Senior High school is very large so hard to get to know all coworkers

    Advice to Management

    Allow teachers more flexibility in implementing strategies that work for them and opting out of strategies that conflict with their teaching style.

    Pros

    Great teachers, coaches and administration

    Cons

    Discipline of the students and classroom control

    Improve methods of classroom control. Almost like some days and or classes a need for a policeman or soldier in the classroom. Allow no eating during class.
