Many criteria are reviewed prior to offering an applicant a position, including information contained in the file, background experiences, education, references, a criminal background check, and responses received during the interview.
At what point will I know if I will be hired and how will I be informed?
The hiring process is ongoing from January through September. Applicants must first complete the online Gallup screening interview. If you have been interviewed for a specific position at the building level, you will receive notification of your status when a candidate has been selected.
Does my educational experience make me too expensive to be hired? Have I taught too many years to be hired?
No. Blue Valley is looking for the best match of a teaching applicant to the available opening. We hire people with many years of teaching experience, as well as first year teachers. Likewise, we hire teachers with bachelor's degrees as well as candidates with doctorates.
