    • If you do not follow the process or your application/resume is incomplete, your information will not be processed.

    • While the acceptance of a resume is done through our online applicant tracking system, all hiring decisions are made directly by the department that has posted the position. Please do not contact Department Chairs or hiring managers directly.
    • Positions are full-time (100%) and "open until filled," unless otherwise stated.
    • Once applications are submitted they are final. Please carefully review your application and the documents which you are attaching to make sure that they are free from errors and complete.

    What happens after I submit my application?
    If you meet the minimum qualifications of the position for which you have applied, your application materials will be reviewed by the hiring committee within the specific department that you have applied to. Should you not meet the minimum qualifications, you will be notified immediately by the system with an automated email.

    You will hear from the appropriate department directly should they be interested in setting up a personal interview. Due to the high volume of resumes we receive, you may not hear back from a specific department. In addition, each department has different hiring needs so the length of the hiring process will vary depending on the position. Therefore, your patience is greatly appreciated.

    What type of background screen will be conducted if I am selected as the successful candidate for an open position?

    Prior to being extended an offer of employment, the district will conduct a background check on all final candidates including, but not limited to the following:

    • Confirmation of an individual's identity via social security number trace;
    • A review of local, state, and federal criminal conviction records;
    • Faith's Law Employment History Review;
    • Employment and educational verifications;
    • Certification and/or licensure verification (if applicable);
    • and checking your professional references (at least three).
