Suggestions for improvement

  • Would like to see move involvement, employees need to know each other, treat employees as a person not a number, and improve on pay. Lowest paid school district in the state, which makes for low moral.

What I like about the company

Have a wonderful administrator, work with honest hardworking co-workers, the community needs improvement

What I dislike about the company

Finance department head is such a rude, mean person that is totally unreasonable to speak with if you dare try. No raises in 7 years, with the increase of insurance our salary has decreased yearly.
