Renfrew County District School Board

Renfrew County District School Board Employee Review

Tries hard

They really do try hard to meet diverse needs while working within limits imposed from outside of their control. Not rating as 5 as they are quick to jump on the band wagon with new initiatives/technology and it feels like we work out the kinks to the benefit of boards who may buy in a little later. Sometimes I wish we’d drag our feet a little more to preserve staff stamina and lessen fatigue over needing to get excited over the next new thing.

No Jobs

This board offers no jobs. They have measures in place to cut back on hiring, eject teachers from the board, and offer zero job security. Annual redundancy is about 50% of the board's employees. Only senior teachers manage to hold on to their jobs, regardless of qualifications and often do so by teaching subjects they are not qualified in. There is even no means to acquiring supply work. You must be hired at the board level and the board only hires from redundant teachers, reserving spots for the most senior redundant teachers. If you want to teach here, YOU NEVER WILL.

Good employer

Worked for them as a teacher. The organization is typical for most school boards. They treat people fairly within the bounds of the collective agreement. No complaints.
