Reviews

Suggestions for improvement

  • Hold children and parents responsible for their behavior. We are trying to prepare students for life situations and they must learn to be accountable for their actions

What I like about the company

We are doing great things in education. We are a 1:1 District and are focused on helping every child reach their full potential.

What I dislike about the company

I would like for our District to be a little less lenient because of parent phone calls. If parents call to complain about a child’s situation (behavior or otherwise) it is usually decided to appease parents rather than investigated and handled in a way that best works for the child. In other words, if a parent complains because their child gets in trouble, the student is usually held less responsible for their actions in order to appease the parent.

Suggestions for improvement

  • Eliminate the passive aggressive comments from administration and show us more support when parents are out of line. Remember that we are people too and have our own families, so our mental health is paramount to our organization’s success.

What I like about the company

I get to make a difference everyday and I have great coworkers.

What I dislike about the company

There is too much micromanagemt and too much politics. People are not respected for their knowledge and professionalism - they are expected to do as they are told at all times.
