Very rewarding but corrupt leadership.
Support Staff (Former Employee) – Lorain County, OH – December 8, 2017
The student population is challenging but very rewarding. Staff is typically very passionate, though stressed and overworked. Unfortunately, compensation is way below industry standards. Teacher's start at $29,000/yr and intervention specialists start at $31,000. There is no "step program" to advance salaries and career. School management is located in Akron and they are unresponsive to school staff concerns. Management employees make much more than school staff. The last time I checked, the CEO made well over $200,000. In fall 2017, they laid off a ton of employees without notice right before the holidays which makes it seem as if they would be an unstable career choice.
Rewarding to work with at risk population
No administrative support, poor compensation, no advancement opportunities, corrupt management, lay off potential
