  • For a public school district, pretty good

    I have been working at Lake Washington School District full-time (More than 5 years)

    Pros

    - great new teacher induction and support framework
    - stipends for extra time/training/resources (small, but better than in other districts)
    - leadership got out ahead of the Common Core transition
    - community levies provide access to modern tech supplies and building modernization
    - strong union

    Cons

    - crushing workloads (per the national trend)
    - district office tends to cycle through new initiatives at a fairly quick rate; teachers can slow things down, but only with their building administrators' support and a mountain of research to support their case
    - over-reliance on testing

    Advice to Management

    Remain objective when confronted by conflicts between community expectations and building initiatives. Picking sides unpredictably seeds distrust between community stakeholders and building staff, which defeats the mission of public education.

    Application

    I applied online – interviewed at Lake Washington School District.

    Interview

    There will be a group of people with pre printed questions to ask the prospective employee. Questions are asked one at a time by each of the interviewers attending the interview. It has been my experience the interview team ranges from 3 to 7 people - depending on the job you apply for.

    Interview Questions

    • The questions are all very PC. Questions are specific to the position being applied for. If you deal with parents - there are usually questions that ask how you prioritize situations: i.e., your principal calls you into the office ass a parent comes into your office to complain, a child also comes in with a bloody nose and the phone rings: what do you do? There might be skill and customer service questions as well.   1 Answer
