School-Based Support Hiring Process

* At the time of hire, an employee must present all required background clearances and disclosures. We recommend that candidates begin collecting these clearances immediately. For a list of everything that is required, visit our Required Hiring Documents page.

** Job offers are extended based on your rank on the eligibility list.

*** Qualified applicants will participate in an interview/examination process. Please note that not all applicants will be selected for an interview/examination. Potential candidates must have no anecdotal record on file, must not have been subject to any disciplinary action within the past eighteen (18) months, and have an excellent record of attendance and punctuality during the last three (3) years (defined as no more than eighteen occasions of lateness or absence for personal illness in the last three years with the exception of one extended long-term absence.)

Who We Look For

Our approach to recruiting and selecting School-Based Support staff is centered around our unwavering, district-wide commitment to the success of all students. We expect our staff to align with the District’s belief that helping all students achieve academic success and social-emotional growth requires more than great teaching. Students learn better when they are healthy, safe, warm and supported–therefore, every School-Based Support employee has a direct impact on the success of our students. To that end, we are seeking employees who are hard-working, character-driven, and committed to providing best-in-class service to our student body and school communities.
