There are three district priorities in the Columbia Elementary School District and we expect that each and every one of our employees understand and support them.
- Positive relationships, safety, and communication: Students learn better when they have positive relationships with staff members and when the relationship between the school and the home is healthy. When an issue arises with someone, you must speak to that person in person rather than by text or email to guarantee effective communication. Safety is our first concern.
- Student achievement: This is why we are all here. No matter what your role is in the district, you can have an impact on increasing student achievement. It starts with the bus drivers, cafeteria workers, and yard duty greeting students with a smile and knowing their names. Teachers are the experts of knowing what students know, are able to do, and what they have yet to learn. Teachers are masters at asking questions to pique interest and curiosity.
- Staff development: While funding is limited, we need everyone to be the best they possibly can be. We need to be certain that they are trained in the latest strategies and technologies so that we are continually improving as a school and students are making adequate growth.
If you are interested in working for the Columbia School District and feel that you can uphold our priorities, we would be interested in meeting you. Complete an application for any openings and we may consider you to be our next staff member.
