    I have been working at Kennewick School District full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Kennewick school district provides a high quality education to their students and an excellent contract for their teachers.

    Cons

    The top down decision making about classroom instruction has eroded teacher moral over the years. The school board and upper administration need to micro manage less and trust teachers more.

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

    Pros

    KSD is a pretty good place to work. The union has negotiated for a little higher pay than the state offers and the district offers extra bonuses 3 times per year. Generally I have always had good supervisors and the teacher eval system is fair.

    Cons

    It's very hard to get into the district you pretty much have to know someone to get a job.
