    I worked at Paulding County Board of Education full-time

    Pros

    It is a great school system to work for. At my school at Hal Hutchens, all teachers teach each other as family rather than just a place to educate the students.

    Cons

    Furloughs have made our pay stagnant or less in the past 8 years because of the economy.

    Advice to Management

    To continue listening to the teachers, pay for the teacher degrees rather than performance

    It was a great job working with children. Off on weekends and holidays to be with my family.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Paulding County Board of Education full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    The school district is working to bring in new technology, although it is still lagging is many, many areas. The benefits are those of the state, the county salary stipend is very competitive, they offer many opportunities for continued education. The county continues to grow, so new opportunities pop up often.

    Cons

    The school district is focused solely on statistics and keeping the "stakeholders" happy - that primarily means parents. This can have a detrimental effect on employee moral, especially if any employee is struggling in some way or another. In other words, They don't care what you're going through personally, the type of students you're teaching or how long you've been a loyal employee - if the numbers aren't there,...

    Advice to Management

    Get the disruptive kids out of the classroom PERMANENTLY so teachers can do their jobs. Classroom discipline is a sideline teacher's job, not the teacher's job. Students need to learn to acclimate to the teacher's ways of teaching (as it is in the real world) and this line of thought should be instilled in children as opposed to the current way of thinking that kids need to be entertained by teachers.

    Current Employee - Teacher in Hiram, GA

    I have been working at Paulding County Board of Education

    Pros

    Paulding is a close knit, proud community. The students are not as difficult to manage as those in a more urban environment. The county has experienced tremendous population growth over the past 15 years which has increased the diversity. There are some good, sharp, people living and working here.

    Cons

    The management of the county lacks diversity. Most principles, board memberts, and county level employees are local people who were born and raised in the county. This is not wise for the growth that has occured within Paulding. The salaries are among the lowest in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The residents are often related and closely connected to the school and county leaders therefore decisions are often based upon...

    Advice to Management

    Become strategic in your planning and resource management. To do this, the leadership needs to infuse more diversity in upper management and seek the best qualified people to fill positions vs. the friends and family connection. Seek feedback from those who are on the front line. Parents are not the only stake holders but seek out feedback from employers and colleges to learn what initiatives are most needed and to motivate...

    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Paulding County Board of Education full-time for more than a year

    Pros

    Not a horrible location to be in as it is part of metro Atlanta. Rural yet still close to shopping if you move here.

    Cons

    No support from administration. They say they will support you but lie, lie, lie. They replace certified teachers with non teachers to save money. As soon as that teacher is certified that one will be let go and possibly rehired to save money! They'd rather ignore a problem than actually help a child because it could cost too much or be too much paper work.

    Advice to Management

    Support and listen to the teacher as she or he knows the kids in their class first hand. Give credit where it is due!
