Need advice regarding my director

Hello all,
I am a licensed ECE and K-6 teacher who has been home with my young children and recently accepted a job where my daughter could attend with me.

I have recently discovered that our school is entirely unlicensed and has been shut down once for this reason. The director continues to operate the school in secret. I was led to believe that the school was open again through a series of loopholes making it a legal operation...the reason this came to light is we have a situation with a student that SHOULD result in a call to CPS, and the director is not willing to call because the school isn’t supposed to exist. This puts my coworkers and I in the position to need to do the reporting.

Other issues: director is almost entirely absent from the school. She is there less than 20 minutes a week. I have no emergency info for the children, despite requesting it several times—she said her desk is too messy to locate it.


I have two weeks left in the school year. Do I stick with it, or bail?

I would leave. What it something happens with that CPS situation? Would you be responsible?

Also, what a shame. You probably won't be able to use this place as a work reference, either.
