Take it from a bd that's moved to larger schools for ego and better pay. Not to forget the paycheck completely, but moving into a larger district with an established staff can be difficult! I had been a head director in smaller schools (1a-4a) for 22 years when I thought I would leave smallville and live in civilization (a town with a Walmart). My family enjoyed the bigger town and I had a plan B in case it didn't work out. There were many smaller schools in the area so I wouldn't mind commuting if things didn't work out. Well, things didn't work out. My assistant was stabbing me in the back and the extra hours took their toll on my family life. I went back to a small 3a-2a school and and stayed until retirement 15 years later. Be careful for what you wish. The grass is not always greener!
