    Positive Outlook

    I have been working at Ouachita Parish School Board full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Very organized. A wonderful work environment. I would recommend this parish to anyone.

    Cons

    The only drawback to this school system is the pay. A neighboring parish pays 10,000 a year more on ave.

    Advice to Management

    My advice is to keep up the great leadership styles and opportunities for growth.

    Neutral Outlook

    I have been working at Ouachita Parish School Board full-time

    Pros

    great schools, good leadership, inspiring and motivating children to succeed, great benefits, summers and holidays off, only work week days, schools are maintained and kept clean, most schools have a PTO who work very hard for their students' school and teachers

    Cons

    lack of funds for technology, increasing decline in parental involvement causing a lack of student motivation, declining state scores due to constant change in curriculum, pay is rarely increased and very small increase at that

    Advice to Management

    our state government should allot more money for schools and education than for government assistance, our school system should require a minimum amount parental volunteer hours in order for their student to attend a school, similar to charter schools in the area, teachers should be given better pay considered how much work is truly required of a teacher each day.

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Ouachita Parish School Board (More than 3 years)

    Pros

    There is a flexible work schedule when work in this position. You can work almost every day if you want to.

    Cons

    The pay is horrible. You can make more working a minimum wage job. There are no benifits other than retirement.

    Pros

    Great place to work. Rewarding Job

    Cons

    No cons other than dealing with children. If you cannot handle discpline and control a classroom you should find another profession.
