Fun environment

Indeed featured review

The most useful review selected by Indeed
Over 9 years I've seen a lot and done a lot. There are a lot of holes in the system. The hardest part of the job is politics and changes that don't make sense but come from power.


Good hours.

Good employees

A very good group of people to work with. The job is rewarding, and it is even better with a good supporting crew. Lots of opportunity for development.

For the most part my 1st 25 years with the district things went downhill Morale is down and staff respect is little to none

You really need to respect your workers and their ability take care of the students In the best way possible. You don't always care about the kids you say that you do but if it comes to the dollars and sense of things it isn't evident


Summers off


Having to go on employment insurance every year

Great place to work

I am very happy here! I enjoy the staff and the admin staff. I like the team atmospheres and being able to coach the older kids sports. I am happy with my evaluation and my evaluator. Over all a great place to work.


Good pay for my position


It’s only a 10 month contract each year

Occasional Teacher

Most teachers leave comprehensive lesson plans. The majority of staff are friendly, and if you look for it, you can always find work! Great school board to work for!
Was this review helpful?


This board couldn’t careless about any of the employees. Staff who get out in Vp and P positions basically have a few board driven classes and all of a sudden claim they can run a school. They can’t! Most in these positions and higher have only ever been with a school board so no real work experience outside of this setting. They couldn’t organize a one car parade. No community, no feeling of support. They should regroup on who should get more pay. It shouldn’t be the people running the show at the board office. Bullies!




They promote people who they know will be puppets. No credibility.

School cleaning

Working at DSBN pays my bills, great staff within the schools, supervisors lack communication skills, great atmosphere very caring principals, you have to distance yourself from drama as it will affect you in in every school.


Good wage great benefits


Takes at least 3 years to get a full time position

It is not a productive learning environment for some/most teachers and students.

Most of the time, I got half or one day job per week as a daily on-call teacher. Not a good healthy place to work. Not only you know some one, but also who you know.

Good work-life balance as an Occasional Teacher

I enjoy the flexibility of this position, as I have the chance to choose the days I work (given that there are jobs available), the schools I choose to accept jobs at, and I can book days off when I need them. There is very little room for advancement into Long-Term positions, and Permanent will take many, many years within this Board (unless you have your French qualifications). Overall recommend, they are great employers. If you’re looking for Permanent soon, this is not the Board for you.

Takes a while to get full time position. But can as a casual cleaner

Once you understand the pace of the job and requirements of the position you will do alright. You must be able to develop and cleaning system that will allow you to clean efficiently. This job is for the motivated and be able to keep up physically in the position.

Always new opportunities to learn as a supply teacher

I enjoy supply teaching within the Niagara District School Board. As a supply teacher, there are some very challenges moments, but everyone is so lovely and is willing to help. I have learned much about myself and the kind of educator I want to be for the next generations to come.

Great place to work.

DSBN must be one of the top boards in Ontario. The schools are well maintained and when supplies are needed there always seems to be money to get the things into the classroom that the teachers need.
