I used to on a regular basis. Due to our current School Board’s approach, I no
longer recommend our district to educators who are looking for a teaching
position. The actions of our Board would discourage and/or “burn out” a
beginning educator too quickly.

With the current climate, I would not want a family member working for this
district because of the uncertainties with teaching positions such as salary,
insurance, class sizes, evaluation, work hours/days, merit pay, and work load.
There are many other districts out there who have a much more civil relationship
with their staff.

NO WAY – other districts treat their teachers as the professionals that they are

No. When I first came to WGSD I thought that I would retire here, but with the
way things are going with contract issues, work day/hours, etc. I am actively
looking in other districts for a job. I have many family and friends that are
teachers in other school districts and when they hear of the things that are
occurring or are being discussed in WGSD, they are shocked and apalled by the
lack of respect in their eyes.

No -1 feel as though we have less time to work during the day, we have less
time off during the school calendar(other dist. have more). Other districts have a
full work day off to work on grades(West Allis, Muskego, Greendale). Other
middle schools have dual prep periods to accomplish the 80-90 students seen
per day.

take a change for the better.

Absoluyely not. They would start at the base salary and as of right now there is
no way to rasie one’s salary. I would not want them to work in a district where
the feeling is that the board has a dislike for teachers.

No I am actually looking to leave due to the poor work climate the board &
superintendent created as well as the declining benefits that originally attracted
me here not to mention the salary loss!

Not right now with the way the climate is, with the way teachers with 5 or less
years of experience are being treated, and with the expectations that teachers
are held to while being paid a very disheartening amount of money,

No. I would not encourage anyone to take a job in our system presently. I have
encouraged younger teachers to look for other jobs outside this district also.

No, they continue to take things away. First, it was the daycare, then it was more
of our benefits. Our salaries have been frozen for years with no opportunities for
advancement. They talk about merit pay, that is just joke and actually is a big
reason the morale is so awful. Some people were given these perfect scores,
and others were ripped a new one. The consistency between buildings was not
the same, and basically the little money that was so called bonus was really a
slap in the face and complete insult. It was not fair and this was a cause of why
people are still carrying animosity towards the district and certain individuals.
