Great student. Great teachers. Poor leadership.
Facilities & Program Manager (Former Employee) – Sun Prairie, WI – July 6, 2013
If you are an individual focused only on the students, then the Sun Prairie Area School District is a wonderful employment opportunity.
If you are an individual who would be frustrated with poor administration leadership, lack of administration support, a great deal of finger pointing, then you may want to look at another school district.
With experience in several school districts, I found the students, teachers, and teacher assistants to be top-notch. In my opinion, the general administration is either overworked or does not know how to manage their time effectively. These issues lead to a clear divide between the educational staff and the school district's leadership.
For examples, search the internet for news stories regarding the SPASD. If you critically read the stories based on issues, you will easily be able to make the connections that I have stated above.
This review is only based on the experience from one former employee. Please do not solely use this review to make any employment decisions. Research...ask questions...and decide for yourself.
The majority of the educational staff are caring...hard working individuals.
Administration lacks the desire and ability to achieve student-focused achievements, Administration lacks strong leadership traits
