Upon hire I was under the impression that I would be making a big difference in the lives of the students. Once my skills were "too good" (their words), they decided to relocate me. It destroyed the kids that I was working with, as well as my focus. They disrespected me and bullied me at the new location. They have this deep hatred for Educational Assistants. They also screwed me over my final paycheck, claiming that I took "too much sick leave." I the amount was deducted from my check. How do I still owe? It makes no sense whatsoever. I even gave them a month's notice.
If you are looking to work at this place, be smart. Always do the bare minimum. Don't trust anyone. If you're looking to work here as a licensed staff, don't.
They screw the kids over too. They lie to them about what to expect and they force them to exhibit behaviors because it allows them to make more money. They lie to the students about their credits and end up keeping them there longer than they need to be. The reason I left is mainly due to the way they wrong the kids.
District 287 only benefits itself. Unless you are one of the higher up admins, you'll get screwed. Stay away from this place.
No lunch break, no vacation pay, no decent healthcare, terrible supervisors and case managers, disrespectful co-workers
