Suggestions for improvement
- Basically the school district is a great place to work in, it is the outside viewpoint of the education system that is at a low point today. I'm hoping that will swing around with time. I believe accountability is important; but, I think we need to look at who should be accountable for what. There are some things that schools should not be totally responsible for--parents also need to be accountable for their children.
What I like about the company
I've worked here for over 30 years and have seen many changes. I can say that most of these changes have been for the better! As a growing district, budgets have remained manageable. Staff usually has a feeling of being valued. Collaboration is key in our district--a 1/2 day is set aside monthly for departmental meetings to further creativity, growth, and camaraderie.
What I dislike about the company
The slowness of change is my biggest pet peeve. I would also have to say that it seems to me that the education system has changed from the joy of teaching/learning to collecting data nad getting ready for standardized testing.
