    Pros

    Teachers are amazing and very supportive of each other and the students. All departments were involved with the SPED.students and communication was good

    Very, very disruptive students, even downright dangerous. The administration was not supportive or helpful and communication sucked. Very difficult school. I didn't go back.

    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Osseo Area Schools (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Reliable salary and benefits; diverse student population; some talented educators; some competitive schools especially on the west side of the district

    Cons

    District is segregated and resources are not equitably allocated. There is a need to strengthen the ability of the educators on the East side to respond to the needs of the community.

    Advice to Management

    Consider not using the tenure system so rigidly as many people who have been in the district for a long time have not had the recent experiences that are relevant to industry needs

    I have been working at Osseo Area Schools full-time (More than 8 years)

    Pros

    Working with students with special needs is more than worthwhile.

    Cons

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

    Advice to Management

    Please reach consensus regarding wording for all due process documents.


  9. "Educator"

    Star Star Star Star Star
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee
    Current Employee - Anonymous Employee

    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 Management

    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.
