Hiring Process for Teachers


Dear Applicant:

Thank you for your interest in teaching in the General Mclane School District. So that you understand how our hiring process works, I am providing you with the following chronology.

1. When a vacancy occurs, it is posted on our website for a two week period. That two week period is to allow internal employees to request transfer.
2. If an internal candidate applies for the position, the transfer request is usually granted and then that person’s position is posted for another two week period, if that position is to be replaced.
3. Once no internal requests for transfer are received at the end of a two week posting, the principal of the
building that has the vacancy will get applications that are on file in the superintendent’s office. The principal (sometimes in cooperation with others) will review the applications to determine who to interview.
4. Applications may be submitted for consideration up until the time the principal schedules interviews.
5. We do not advertise positions in the newspaper if we feel we have an adequate applicant pool on file.
6. Applications that are missing items such as official transcripts or any of the required clearances will be tagged as missing. If an interview is granted, a status report on these items will be requested. If a significant time line is needed for the applicant to obtain the required documents, eligibility for the job may be hampered.
7. If you are a recent graduate and have not yet been issued your certificate, we must have a letter from your college dean stating that you have met academic and praxis requirements and that your certificate is in process.
8. If your application is on file, it will remain on file for 18 months or longer if we hear you want to stay active. Feel free to send updates.
9. If your application is on file and an opening occurs, it does not hurt to send the principal a letter of interest for that particular position to assure he reviews your application. This is particularly important for substitutes.
10. A team of administrators and teachers will conduct interviews. The top two to four applicants will be asked to return to teach a lesson, in front of students if school is in session, or in front of the committee if it is summer.
11. Pre-Employment testing may be administered to the candidates.
12. The top one or two applicants will be recommended to the superintendent If the superintendent is comfortable, he will make a recommendation to the board.
13. Only the board of education can hire. No hiring is final until board approval is received.

If you have any questions, you may contact Marissa Orbanek at the Education Center at 273-1033, ext. 5901.

Again, thank you for your interest in General McLane.

Richard Scaletta
Superintendent of Schools
