    Negative Outlook

    I have been working at Jenks Public Schools part-time

    Pros

    Working with the kids is a huge blessing and co-workers are awesome!

    Cons

    Management needs a lot of work. Takes a long time for necessary changes to take place. Communication is not ideal.

    Advice to Management

    Listen to employees more. Get insight before making large decisions. Some recent decisions have proven to not be ideal for the program

    Former Employee - Administrative Assistant 

    I worked at Jenks Public Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Teachers and staff enjoyable to work with. Opportunity to process improvement. Great group of principals.

    Cons

    Teachers complain about low pay, but staff pay is worse. Cost of health insurance leaves little pay remaining.

    Advice to Management

    Staff needs to cover other staff in order to cover lunch breaks. Staff employee manager works on behalf of the district not on behalf of the employees.

    I worked at Jenks Public Schools part-time

    Pros

    Substitute training was very thorough. We had easy access to job postings through the AESOP computer program. Substitute jobs were plentiful. Substitute Coordinator, Jan Steger, was very pleasant to work with.

    Cons

    As with many public school districts, it would be nice if the salary for substitute teachers were a little higher.

    Approves of CEO

    I worked at Jenks Public Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Great community among teachers and lots of school pride. Campus pits safety first and feels safe to staff and students.

    Cons

    District focus is on sports. While academics are great, for the most part, they take a backseat to the moneymaker, athletics.
