    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.

    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.
