Working in the AASD
Our District includes 4K, 15 elementary, 3 middle, and 3 high schools. In addition, we have 14 charter schools. We have a large Hmong and Hispanic population and provide English Language Learner (ELL) services for students with limited English proficiency.
We have a positive working relationship with our employees, and a Board of Education that is dedicated to making our District an excellent place for children to learn. The Board recognizes the benefits of employing and maintaining a culturally and socially diverse staff. Accordingly, one of the Board’s goals is to employ qualified minority personnel within the District. This supports the Board’s mission to develop knowledge of, appreciation for, and an understanding of different value systems and cultures, as well as developing the skills necessary to cope with social change.
The AASD is known throughout the area as a progressive district that emphasizes individualism, empathy and community-oriented learning. As the sixth-largest school district in the state, we think our staff programs and benefits speak for themselves:
New Educator Mentoring
- Supporting educators in their first years with a structured, collaborative, and non-evaluative support system that will yield professionally empowered educators who understand AASD’s commitment to their continual professional growth, thereby fostering student success
New Staff Induction
- The two year induction program, in compliance with PI-34, contains four main components: an ongoing orientation to welcome all new educators to the district and provide training, support seminars for professional development tied to the Wisconsin educator standards, a mentor to provide ongoing instructional and management support to initial educators, and professional Development Plan (PDP) support
Professional Staff Development
- Staff development must successfully assimilate and support the professional development of teacher in the district, be ongoing, interactive, and job-embedded and must continuously be assessed to direct the planning and implementation of district efforts
- Training Opportunities for advancement and progression by developing the full potential of all staff members by enhancing their professional skills.
