How are the career development opportunities at Rocky View Schools?

Pros

This is a great company to work at. The base salary is low and there is not much room for advancement. I was at the top salary for 10 years and never got a raise until the year I left. I left because I wanted advancement in my carreer and chose to go back to school to pursue other avenues. The people you work with are mostly great, want to help kids and get along well with staff and administration. The job satisfactin depends on how admin treat their staff and if there is recognition and support for the work done. Hands are mostly tied and decisions are not entirely your own. Depending on the needs of the students, you are placed where they need you.

Cons

Low pay. little support in some schools. Cliques among the staff. Some kids are so challenging that the support needs to be increased and when the budget is cut there are no supports. Kids suffer, staff is burnt out.

Advice to Management

support the people who work hard. Let them be heard. Be present at staff meetings. Really Listen to concerns and try to deal with them promptly.
