We are having quite a problem at my center with people calling in sick a lot, asking to leave early, etc. It is always the same people. There are also several teachers that are still working there who normally would not be but the administration is so desperate for bodies that I think they are hesitant to let anybody go. These staff members are just lazy and ineffective in the classroom From my perspective and experiences there, it is a great school. Very clean and professional atmosphere. My question is what policies or consequences do your schools/centers have to prevent frequent absences and how do you attract and keep quality teachers? Lack of pay doesn't seem to be a motivator. They go through their sick days and continue to call in. We get sick days as well as vacation days and holidays.
