      Pros

      Excellent access to flexible professional development opportunities. I was able to renew my expired teaching license with ease through online courses offered through Wake Learns. WCPSS provided excellent flexibility throughout the pandemic allowing for teachers to work from home on teacher work days and asynchronous days.

      Cons

      Teachers only find out information (via email) from the county mere minutes before parents receive the same email.

      Pros

      Higher supplement salary compared to the surrounding districts, supported by district, plenty of teaching materials provided.

      Cons

      Not much room for growth that reflects in pay besides getting board certified. I think that’s more of a state issue than a district issue.
