STEP 3: References

  • CENTRAL OFFICE ADMINISTRATIVE POSITIONS
    The Leadership Management Office does not use the automated reference feature to obtain references for central office administrative positions, references will be sent once finalists have been selected.
  • LOCAL SCHOOL ADMINISTRATIVE POSITIONS
    Once you add an open position and submit your application, the TalentEd system will generate an automated e-mail to your references requesting them to follow a link and complete the administrative reference form. This form is different than the certified form and pertains to your leadership abilities. Once your references have been returned, the Leadership Management Office will begin the application review process.

 

STEP 4: Position Interviews

 

STEP 5: Appointment

  • All successful candidates are employed by official action of the Board of Education upon recommendation of the Superintendent. Upon approval by the board the hiring official will contact the candidate.

 

STEP 6: Paper-Work Session

  • After official employment offers, new administrators are invited to a paperwork session to learn about the District and complete employment forms. New employees are required to have Georgia fingerprints on file with us prior to the start of employment.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The administrative reference form is different than the certified reference form and pertains to your leadership abilities. If you are also completing a certified or classified application, please make sure your immediate principal/supervisor is aware that they will need to complete all reference forms.
