Though your link is not working, I can say you are about 99% right!

Disappointed in things here today.

Coffee-With-Cop-Release-Photo.png

After the riots in Charlotte last night. 

 

 

Steph got the lay off notice we have been expecting. They let her work till the end of the pay period (today). Tomorrow we will go up and get her stuff out of the classroom. The school did not have as many students as they were expecting so they had too many teachers. She has only had 2 students this year. 

 

Heath's bus was late for some reason. Fortunately Steph got home early so I was able to go get the neighbor from work while she waited for him to get hom.. I got home and Steph left for an interview.

Good luck. I'm sure she'll find something, but that doesn't make it fun.

Sorry to hear Steph is back to looking for a job.  I know how much you guys need the income, what with your back, and the dirt low prices of scrap.

I have a feeling that the schools she interviews at are calling the first school she worked for and that is giving her a black mark. The school, a special needs school, has 14 staff teachers, in the past 2 years 31 teachers have been thru the school. In the class Steph taught there were 4 different teachers, she was there the longest. Have you ever worked anywhere that turned over their entire staff twice in 2 years? If you did would you blame the staff or the administration?

 

The principal has been through every school she could go through and this is her last stop before retirement, if she can keep from getting kicked out. It is a shame that her position is more important than the needs of kids who really need help. Steph had parents crying when she left. 

 

This new school just isn't going to make it. I is a preparatory school. In the past two years it lost some students due to the condition of the building. Many students went to a prep school just a couple of miles away. She had 4 students at the beginning. 2 left as did many students in other grades. The state told them if they didn't get their  budget in line with the number of students they would be closed. 

 

The other problem is that she is just out of college and has no real resume to wave a round. That and we live in the sticks. The nearby positions are filled and have been filled for years. She has been driving one hour to work. 

 

She has 2 interviews tomorrow.

Hopefully she gets a nibble today.
Maybe get a couple of the parents from the first school to write a brief rebuttal to what the admin is saying? Or possibly be direct with HR about the situation (irreconcilable differences stuff) and that they shouldn't be considered references.

Another option is just leaving them out of the equation. It'll hurt the resume, but maybe not as much as having them there.

With the school system all they have to do is put her name in the computer and it tells them where she worked. Think of it as transferring departments in a factory or large corporation.  There have been many of the teachers who left the school who have gone to the school board. Someone on the board is protecting the principal I have a feeling.
