    I have been working at Surrey School District full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Lots of funding and learning opportunities both for students and teachers

    Cons

    Dysfunctional - being very short of teachers and administrators has made underqualified people to be able to take up jobs and create lots of problems. The district doesn’t really care as long as parents don’t complain much. It’s become too big to manage well.

    Negative Outlook
    Disapproves of CEO

    I have been working at Surrey School District full-time for more than 10 years

    Pros

    Union, municipal pension, possibly of summers off, benefits- other Co workers who are trying to support each Other against the odds.

    Cons

    Very poor training and job prep. Left to oneself to figure out job duties in spite of an ever increasing workload and poor staff allotment. Very out of date and out of touch formulas for determining clerical allotment, especially in an ever growing and rapidly changing population base. Money rules the decisions rather than the best practise for their employees. Upper leadership resistant to hearing the wisdom from the very people directly impacted. Refusal to hear the hard stuff in order to make the courageous and brave changes to honour their workers and create a functional and pleasant working environment.
