    I have been working at Lawton Public Schools full-time (More than 10 years)

    Pros

    Location to Military Facility
    Military Friendly

    Cons

    Lack of support for long time employees near retirement.
    Pay Scale for teachers and support for all employees.

    Advice to Management

    Trust and Support your senior staff. In many cases they have given the district their best and would like to go out feeling they are appreciated rather than their value is two for one. The other being well, I must do this in order to be a team player with another organization, doing this with a clear understanding that it isn't fair. If employees have been loyal to you and worked hard show some appreciation. Remember karma.

    Pros

    The kids were sweet, the principal was good and the counselor was awesome!

    Cons

    I have taught in other states and the pay in Lawton, OK is at least $15,000 less for the same experience. The behavior issues were a lot worse here than my other schools out of state.

    Pros

    most places don't pay teachers for summer they do. They are very flexible to work with, and understanding. They are also very personable.

    Cons

    Some misunderstanding within the special ed department. They need to be more understanding to some of the problems concerning special ed kids. I mean not so quick to change their life or routine at school.

    Advice to Management

    Please be understanding to the needs of the kids, especially the ones on a lower level cognitively. They need their chance too.

    I have been working at Lawton Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    I work at Edison Elementary with a great group of students. The teachers and staff always seem to come up with great ideas to help the kids and parents. We collaborate on a weekly basis to check on students assessment to make sure that they are in the Oklahoma educational standards.

    Cons

    The pay is not the best but I'm hoping that the legislature will get on board and give us an increase.
