I know this is a long shot that someone with "inside info" happens to read here, but thought I would at least try. I have a job offer at Timberline Elementary. Apparently the new principal there is coming from Sagebrush. I do have a friend who works elsewhere in the district who told me that they do move principals around frequently and that in itself isn't necessarily a red flag (that would never be done in my current district). However, I just looked up the Teaching and Learning Conditions survey results and the results from Sagebrush look pretty bad in regards to leadership. I am currently in a very low SES school that is a challenging place to work and our results were significantly better. Anyone have any insight? My friend that works in the district works at a different school and unfortunately didn't know anything specific about either of those two schools.

My understanding is that Timberline has had leadership issues for the past several years, I know several teachers who moved schools or took early retirement to get out... I don't know anything about Sagebrush.

Thanks. The principal from Sagebrush actually said something similar to one of my references on the phone, which I thought was odd. Why would the district put another disliked principal at the school if they've already been dealing with leadership issues? Is the district leadership not very effective?

I ended up not taking the job. After finding out more about the specific position, there were a lot of red flags on top of the potential leadership issues, most notably that the principal told me the stability of the position was "year to year" and depended on what funding the district decided to give. I have non-probationary status in my current district and I just wasn't excited enough about the job to give up that security.
