    I have been working at Lawrence Public School USD 497 part-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are many nice employees. It's nice to have a school schedule. Fringe benefits are paid for by the district.

    Cons

    There are too many non-paid days. The wage for paraeducators is lower than other districts in the state. In addition, there are too many non-contract days which is detrimental to paras who are already struggling to make ends meet.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Please get to know the paras. Request input and be accessible to hear the needs and concerns of your employees. Learn the names of your employees, or at least make time to greet your employees and students. Don't isolate yourself from your faculty, staff, and students.
