Company Culture

The employees who were working as educators and administrators were mostly of the same religious faith, and for the most part, about 95%, they were unwilling to collaborate or corporate with individuals(like me) who did not conform to their belief system. Their strict religious beliefs were brought into the classroom which made many students uncomfortable and upset. The "cliquish" and judgemental attitudes displayed against students and faculty that were different made the atmosphere hostile.

Teamwork

This again goes back to the problem of predominate religion and Principal favorites.

Freedom to work independently

The only time they looked at what you were doing in class is if they liked you and stopped by to chat or if a parent complained. They always backed the parents complaints even though they had no idea what was happening in the classroom. The students were passed on a parent's say so.

Internal Communication

I was never given positive feedback, not genuinely. I was chastised on any occasion the administration found. I was not challenged. I came to Utah from one of the top 100 high schools in the nation. Davis School District wanted my talent because they refused to acknowledge them.

Gender Equality

The Principal expected the female teachers to live u for his role as the women did in his house hold did according to his misogynistic religious beliefs. They had a pioneer dress code for women teachers that was so outdated that my former professional wardrobe was considered obscene for the most part.

Career Development

I was NEVER offered any career development.

Overall compensation for your work

Ha! I made twice what I got at this place at my past job working part time and was always recognized Nd appreciated.

Office / Work Environment

New building

Environmental Friendliness

The students tried to do this.

Work-Life Balance

My grading load from five Creative Writing classes was ridiculous. I asked for the best student aides, kids I knew, and was given whoever. I had no life during the school year.

Job Security

My Principal made it known he did not like me

Handicapped Accessibility

This was great.

Workplace Safety

Great custodial staff!

Challenging Work

Teaching involves knowing several aspects of up to four specific subjects as well as precise planning skills, ability to adjust, and also up to date computer skills for students' grades, research, plan, create shows for class etc. Another important aspect of teaching that must be learned, studied and studied but can never be perfected is human behavior. The most important . . . You Must love what you do and The Students or you will not survive.

Inclusive / Diverse

I did not see that diversity was important in this workplace. I cannot remember a single teacher of color. Heaven forbid if you were of a different religion.

Suggestions for improvement

  • No religion in the school. It confuses the students..

What I like about the company

I met a very kind sweet colleague with whom I bonded and tried to collaborate until the Principal discovered we were working together and changed our schedules.

What I dislike about the company

Please see the answers to the aforementioned questions.

Company Culture

I was a professional therefore I worked directly with my assigned school and they treated me fantastic!

Support from management

Administration was wonderful to work with when I needed support or feedback.

Freedom to work independently

I felt I was given expectations and then was allowed to do my job.

Internal Communication

The school itself was great. I felt the communication from the district could have improved.

Attitude towards older colleagues

I don’t have enough knowledge to fairly rate this.

Career Development

Not a lot of opportunities for paraprofessionals.

Overall compensation for your work

I was paid well for my position.

Office / Work Environment

I worked in one of the newer places.

Environmental Friendliness

Recycling is encouraged

Work-Life Balance

I felt there could have been some improvement, but I feel that more of a culture problem, not just this company.

Job Security

This is a past job, but I left voluntarily to pursue other opportunities.

Handicapped Accessibility

From what I saw there were a lot of accommodations.

Workplace Safety

Lots of training opportunities.

Challenging Work

The challenge for me came with maturity. I didn’t quite have the maturity to work with the community.

Inclusive / Diverse

Once again I feel the lack is a society problem, not just this company/school district.

Suggestions for improvement

  • I think improvements would be helpful, but I do not have any helpful suggestions.

What I like about the company

I was lucky enough to work with administrators who understood their employees wellbeing needed to be a priority for them to do an excellent job! I would be reminded to take care of myself and would have coworkers checking on me and offering to help when I showed signs of burn out. I loved my job and only left it so that I could pursue an education.

What I dislike about the company

What I disapproved of has more to do with how society views schools and their personnel then the company/district themselves. I feel it is hard to progress when aiming for a moving target.

Suggestions for improvement

  • If I were in charge, I would give teachers more autonomy to teach as they would like to do. I hear teachers complain that they are being asked to do everything the same as each teacher on their grade level. I think that we stifle some of the best teaching that way. I love the culture and environment at both of my schools. They are happy places and pleasing to the eye. I think more security cameras would make my schools safer places and the district has plans to install them. These will make students and staff feel safer.

What I like about the company

Davis School District is a family friendly employer. They work with parents to allow their children to attend the same school where the parent works. They are fair with women and minorities. They have good benefit plans and work with those who need maternity leave or medical leave. My husband worked for the district for 30 years. I have worked for 25 years. I have been well taken care of. I am a School Technology Specialist and enjoy working with the technology in my schools. The district has a great vision of where they want to go with technology and teaching. They are very supportive in providing training and support for all employees.

What I dislike about the company

I would love to see more School Technology Specialists hired to work for the district. As we add more and more technology to our schools, it becomes difficult to care for it all and still have time to help teachers in a timely manner. I love both of my schools, but I would love to have only one school. I could still work full time in helping the staff with their technology needs. I know if I had more time, I would be able to train my staff much more. Just dealing with the hardware and software needs of the schools takes my whole time leaving little for training and support.
