Suggestions for improvement

  • School board should consult teachers more in the decision making of the school year.

What I like about the company

My Administration is very professional, organized and have strong moral values. They are very supportive of their teachers, and have open door policies with parents. Our school motto is ''we are a neighborhood school with heart,'' and it is true. They make all faculty and employees feel like family.

What I dislike about the company

Some of the school board's decisions make little sense to teachers. Example: Free flu shots were offered to all teachers and staff in the district but they were offered at the school board office from 9am to 1pm on a school day. Also, the school board runs a teacher resource center that is a great asset to teachers but it's hours of operation is not convenient for teachers. It is open during the school day when teachers are busy teaching and closes an hour and a half after the end of the school day. It is also closed during school breaks when teachers are available and desire to visit.
