Very Political, no chance to advance unless your boss is the director of that area & your best friend! No support from management, and confidential, everybody knows your job assignment before you do. The Special Education Director, has zero people skills,poor communication, a strong supporter of self! The students are the best part of the job always enjoy them! Oh and the pay is low compared to other area districts.

Secretary/Coordinator (Former Employee) – Highland, MI – June 26, 2012
I worked in several different capacities within the HVS system. As a secretary in an elementary school I was able to update their office with current computers (a gift of the Parent Teacher Organization) and devise an excell program to order books and supplies for teachers on two different schedules. I loved the students and teachers alike.
I also worked for Curriculum and Instruction K-12 and loved working with actual heads of departments. I supported them in many different capacities including arranging inservice meals, priortizing workloads, typing whole curriculums, and delivering them to the school board's homes before meetings. Because of cutbacks, this position was eliminated.
After that, I worked as coordinator of substitute teachers. My schedule was 5:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., which was hard for me.
