Frequently Asked Questions
Site Selection Portal
I am trying to log in to the Site Selection Portal and my log in information is not working. Why can’t I log in? There are several reasons why you may not be able to log in at this time. The most common reasons are A) it hasn’t been 72 hours since you received eligibility notification or B) your social security number or last name was entered incorrectly on your application. Double check those first and email your recruiter if you are still having trouble. You can also view the External Candidate Site Selection Portal Instructions for a step by step guide for how to navigate this portal to apply to jobs.
I’m a current employee in a non-teacher role, log in to the Site Selection app, but I can’t see any roles! To see positions, you will have to have a certification on file. To add your certifications to your HR profile, you will need to email firstname.lastname@example.org with a copy of your certification, which will be added so you can apply.
I logged into the Site Selection Portal but my certifications aren’t listed correctly. We uploaded whatever instructional certifications you listed in your application, either ones that you already possessed or that you were in the process of completing. If this list is wrong, please log back into your application, update the Certification section, and email your recruiter when complete. The certifications listed for you in the Site Selection Portal will be updated within 72 hours.
Help! One of the schools I applied to no longer shows up in my School Selections. If a school you applied to no longer shows up in your school selections, it is because the position has been filled.
I’m a current District teacher looking to transfer. How do I apply to positions? As of July 2019, current District teachers/counselors cannot transfer positions or locations until the 2020-21 school year. Please note that you must have accrued proper location seniority by spring 2020 in order to be eligible for the site selection process.
I am trying to get in touch with the right person to answer my site selection questions; who do I ask? Great question! If you are an external candidate, your recruiter is your go-to person to help you navigate the site selection process;
Chenoa Freeman – Elementary, Reading Specialists: email@example.com
Emily Weaver – Social Studies, English, English as a Second or Other Language (ESOL), World Languages: firstname.lastname@example.org
Barry Zucker – Science, Math, Vocational- Career/Tech Ed: email@example.com
Anna Garbuz- Special Education, Speech Language Pathologists, Health/PE: firstname.lastname@example.org
Sara Metzger- Art, Music, School Counseling: email@example.com
How else do I get in contact with a school if I’m interested in applying? The best way to meet schools with openings in your content area is to attend a district Hiring Event or review the Schools Directory to find school contact information. We encourage you to contact a school directly if you have applied to a position in the Site Selection Portal over two weeks ago and have not heard back.
Online Job Board
I see a job on the Online Job Board that I’m interested in applying to, but I don’t see it in the The Site Selection Portal to apply to. Why not? You can only see jobs in the Site Selection Portal that you hold (or will hold) certifications in; if you cannot apply to a job in the Site Selection Portal, it is most likely because you do not hold the certification to apply to the position. If you do hold a certification for the position, then the position may have just been filled and not yet updated on the Online Job Board.
How often is the Online Job Board updated? The Online Job Board is updated with current openings every work day at 5:00pm (not including weekends).
Site Selection Form
Is the site selection form binding? Yes! If you sign and return a site selection form to a school team, that is a binding agreement that you will accept an offer at that school. Your official offer with a salary quote will be sent to you within a few days of accepting the role. You should not sign more than one site selection form.
