I think that the district is trying to solve the achievement gap here for our children, but it is at a slow pace. The monthly pay period is a real problem for most staff and will continue to be a real reason for the turnover and retention of quality educators. My typical setting day consist of visiting multiples schools where I would work with specific groups of students on goal setting, decision making and behavior modification. The environments within the district are pleasant and the hardest part of my job is adjusting to the monthly pay period. The rate of pay for the job I perform is undervalued if compared to the same job in The Twin Cities, but I've worked hard to make the needed adjustments. The educators and students in our district are great and this is my reason for continuing my employment here.
relaxed environment, kind people and acknowledge hardworkers
slow to change, passive and poor pay period
