Frequently Asked Questions

Likewise, we hire teachers with bachelor’s degrees as well as candidates with doctorates. New teachers with a bachelor’s degree may bring up to 7 years of experience to the district and those with a master’s degree may bring a maximum of 11 years of experience.

  • Many criteria are reviewed prior to offering an applicant a position, including information contained in the file, background experiences, education, references, a criminal background check and responses received during the interview.

  • Our online application system allows your profile to be retained for one year. However, you must continue to keep your profile current and apply for current jobs posted in order to be considered for any position. Each application is current only as long as the position has not been filled.

  • While substitute teaching does offer you an opportunity to become more acquainted with the various schools and principals, it is not a requirement for hiring. If you are interested in substitute teaching, please review the information in our substitute teachers section of this web site.
