    Negative Outlook

    I worked at Edmonton Khalsa School full-time

    Pros

    Decent pay and benefits
    Stable hours
    Strong religious department holds many interesting events and ceremonies throughout the school year
    Sometimes provides a free lunch for staff

    Cons

    Out of date reporting systems
    Inconsitent and unprofessional administration (apathetic)
    Shows no respect to teaching staff (no prep time, demeaning staff meetings)
    Demanding of time on weekends and evenings (for no additional compensation)
    No future planning strategies or plans
    Minimum grade averages are 80% (those who don't meet this are fired)
    FSA/Provincial exam scores must be 10% above provincial average (staff who don't meet this are fired)
    Shows no understanding of current educational practices or trends

    Advice to Management

    Student and staff retention is a huge problem; 50% staff turnover every 6 months is not normal for a school. Open an honest, safe discussion with staff and students and forget the ego of the Board of Trustees- the board needs to realize they are running a school and students/staff are not pawns to be played with and disposed of at a whim.

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Edmonton Khalsa School (Surrey, BC) in February 2015.

    Interview

    Standard teacher interview- philosophy of education, experience, what can offer the school, etc. Was done in the presence of the Principal, Head Teacher, and Board of Trustees.
    It took them a long time to get back to me (over a week), I almost accepted another job because their response time was so slow.
