    I have been working at Northampton County Public Schools full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    Some administrators are understanding and seem supportive.

    Cons

    At the district level (central office) there is little support, there are several very qualified teachers who have applied for positions in administration, yet the district hires from the outside before looking at the qualifications of those within the district.
    There is a huge turn-around for teachers and administrators, which makes for significant inconsistency in rules, regulations and expectations.
    Some staff use their phones often texting and calling, leave their classrooms and have social visits from friends and family.

  3. "Mediocre"

    I have been working at Northampton County Public Schools full-time

    Pros

    Many opportunities to build relationships with school administrators.

    Cons

    Many things were relatively disorganized.

    Advice to Management

    Look for more teachers from the community area.

    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Northampton County Public Schools full-time (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    The school has slowly been improving over the years I've taught here.

    Cons

    High poverty level area. Isolated, tight-knit community with a distinct culture all it's own. Lax administration -nepotism is rampant. Procedures do not get followed through as they should by administrators. The school ends a new building, there has been asbestos in the school, and severe structural cracks in the walls and foundation.

    Advice to Management

    Be consistent, and focus on accountability. Get things done quickly, and don't change what you say you will carry out. There's a couple administrators with no backbone.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Northampton County Public Schools as a contractor

    Pros

    The area is a wonderful place to live and raise a family. The crime rate is very low. The students of NCPS want to learn if provided with the right opportunities for growth.

    Cons

    The salary for this division is very low and they have a low teacher retention rate.
