    Pros

    Some of the staff was nice and friendly. For me, it was close to home and a short commute.

    Cons

    Give jobs to people they know, not necessarily to the people who were most qualified for the job. Does not care about seniority and will lay off employees who have worked there for 15 years without an explanation.

    Pros

    School climate can be pleasant depending on which school you work at.

    Cons

    There is very little respect from the administrators for an Instructional Assistant. Random Assistants are given the RIF letters each year, just so they can make their budgets. Most are hired back in August, which leads to a several month period of stress, from late April when they start the layoffs, until late August when they call you to ask you back. The majority of elementary school Instructional Assists are part time, because the district does not want to spend the money on benefits. This causes the special needs population that we work with to have a lack of continuity on a daily basis. They also prefer to hire certified teachers who are unable to find employment as teachers and will consider this their "foot in the door." The main problem with this is that very often they leave when a job becomes available in another school district. In my school, some of the special needs students have as many as 5 different instructional Assistants in a single year.

    Advice to Management

    Stop laying off this particular group of employees. It is stressful and frustrating to those of us that have been with the district for many years. Consider hiring us in full time positions.
