Suggestions for improvement
- Academic teachers are put under a lot of pressure to drive improvement in test scores, but we have no time or opportunities to improve in our respective areas through meaningful professional development and collaboration with one another. If faculty members were allowed to pursue more outside professional development in their respective areas, we could generate more ideas. Professional learning communities should be supported to allow faculty members to work together to create more cohesion between academics and shops. Staff schedules should allow for opportunities to meet with one another and work together.
What I like about the company
The students are wonderful. They have a drive to succeed within their shop areas. The school functions like a small village. There are many services available to employees through the shops, including a cafe and bakery, vehicle repair and maintenance, and home and garden offerings.
What I dislike about the company
The facilities in the academic classroom are in desperate need of upgrades. The technology, including that in the media center, is very limited or extremely dated. Faculty are not offered opportunities for professional development out of district. Student opportunities for field trips and other activities is extremely limited or not approved.
