    Working with students with special needs is more than worthwhile.

    Cons

    Due process paperwork is all-consuming; and requirements vary according to the administrator.

    Please reach consensus regarding wording for all due process documents.

    Educator

    I have been working at Osseo Area Schools

    Pros

    Teaching and helping children and families

    Cons

    Union runs the district. Lack of student centered decisions. Pleasing the union and the teachers that resist change is more important than student success.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    The district keeps hiring the same type of leaders that makes administration feel comfortable. Administration is not truly ready to support the change that is needed to create a learning environment that ensures all students learn and thrive.

    Pros

    Higher paying district, progressive, great benefits, good leadership, large district, great staff development opportunities

    Cons

    because we are progressive, there can be a lot of work---hard work, levies have not passed and so there are budget cuts in the near future

    I have been working at Osseo Area Schools full-time (more than 10 years)

    Pros

    Our students are getting a great education.

    Cons

    Between the economy, the State Legislature and the school district board, the average employee works more, gets paid less and is rapidly approaching lower middle class to upper poverty levels in the grand scheme of things.
