Certified Staff Application Process
Step 1 - Application Process
Individuals seeking employment must submit a completed application, along with a personal resume, copy of your transcripts, and 3 letters of recommendation or a current placement file. Your completed application packet will be kept active for one year from the date received. If you would like your file to remain active for the following year, you must request in writing that it remain active prior to the one year expiration date or complete a new application. It is the applicant's responsibility to contact the Human Resources Department to indicate interest in each posted position and submit their completed application packet prior to the closing date.
Step 2 - Paper Screening
All complete applications are reviewed to determine how the applicant rates according to the specific criteria created by the administrator who posted the open position. The final ratings determine who is interviewed for a specific position.
Step 3 - Interviews
Interviews are scheduled with those applicants who most closely met the criteria. These interviews are most likely with the administrator and can include staff at the individual site where the vacancy exists. Candidates may be asked to interview for different positions at different times as a result of this process.
Step 4 - Recommendation
After the interview process, the administrator will notify the selected candidate. Upon acceptance of an offer of employment, the Superintendent will recommend the selected candidate to the Board of Trustees. Upon approval of the Board of Trustees, an official contract will be extended. The contract must be signed and returned within the stated time period. No contract remains valid if the employee fails to qualify for or fails to obtain the necessary certification within the specified deadline established by the Professional Teaching Standards Board. Inquiries regarding certification should be directed to Professional Teaching Standards Board, 1920 Thomes Avenue, Suite 400, Cheyenne, WY 82002, 800 675-6893. An application packet for certification can either be acquired through the District or the Professional Teaching Standards Board.
Step 5 - Orientation
New certified employees are required to attend a New Teacher Orientation which is held before the school year begins. It includes district orientation, building orientation, and all employee paperwork including payroll information and finger printing.
