Q: DOES MY EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE MAKE ME TOO EXPENSIVE TO BE HIRED? HAVE I TAUGHT TOO MANY YEARS TO BE HIRED?
Q: AT WHAT POINT WILL I KNOW IF I WILL BE HIRED AND HOW WILL I BE INFORMED?
A: The hiring process is ongoing throughout the year as vacancies occur. Recommendations to fill positions are made by the building administrators and Human Resources contacts the candidates selected. If you have been interviewed for a specific position at the building level, you will receive notification of your status when a candidate has been selected.
Q: WHAT WILL MY SALARY BE?

Q: IF I AM NOT HIRED AS A TEACHER, WILL I BE CONSIDERED FOR A SUBSTITUTE TEACHER OR PARAPROFESSIONAL POSITION?
A: If you are interested in a substitute teaching position, please visit Substitute Teacher Opportunities.
If you are interested in a Paraprofessional position, please visit Classified Application for Employment.
Q: IF I WORK AS A SUBSTITUTE OR PARAPROFESSIONAL IN THE DISTRICT, WILL IT INCREASE MY CHANCES OF BEING HIRED AS A TEACHER?
A: While substitute
teaching or serving as a paraprofessional does offer you an opportunity to
become more acquainted with the district schools and building administrators,
it does not guarantee you will be hired for a teaching position.

A: In fairness to the building administrators and applicants, you should not visit the buildings without prior approval from an administrator in Human Resources.
Q: HOW AND WHEN WILL I BE CONSIDERED AS A CANDIDATE FOR ANY POSITION IN MY AREA OF CERTIFICATION?

The administrators have access to information on all applicants and develop the pool of candidates for a particular vacancy from the appropriately certified applicants. The hiring process is ongoing throughout the year as vacancies occur. (All applications are kept for approximately one year.)
