Paraprofessional (Current Employee) –  West Chester, PAApril 10, 2018
The typical day you are occupied completely with the students. The teachers take the time you need to get you up to speed to be helpful and useful to the the students. Some of the students are a challenge to get through to, but that is the job. Everyone try to provide what ever resources you need to do the job.
Pros
Great staff, great students.
Cons
Low pay scale.

This school system works to stay on top of the latest in education. It is a fast growing district so due to growth, sometimes there is an overlap in promised services and delivery, but they are very willing to work with you.

Enjoyed the Interaction with other Employees
Human Resources/Benefits Clerk (Former Employee) –  West Chester, PAAugust 11, 2015
Working for the school district was a very rewarding position. I enjoyed interacting with the other employees of the district. It brought me great joy to be able to help an employee with a problem that they may have encountered with their benefits.

There was great teamwork in this environment and I feel that is very important. More can be accomplished with a team working together for the good of the company than against each other.

The difficult part of the job was when I was unable to help a fellow employee with their benefits because the problem was something that I could not resolve.

Great place to work!
Pros
Great teamwork
