    No opinion of CEO

    I worked at Edmonton Public Schools full-time for more than 3 years

    Pros

    Working with the kids, and some of the staff are beyond amazing.

    Cons

    You are literally a cog in the machine. You get lost in the shuffle, and nobody cares about you in this organization.

    Advice to Management

    Fix how you hire people in HR. It is unclear how people advance in this career. You can be stuck in the substitute/temporary contract loop for 10+ years. If you really do not like a teacher's performance, you should have a way to evaluate them, and then let them go. Yet, fresh new undergrads with zero experience are getting probationary contracts. It really is a lottery with this district, to be hired. I gave up... hope this year, after seeing a fresh new undergrad get hired in a temp contract which was not offered to me. But, it's really about who you know, or some lie about not showcasing yourself well.
