Frequently Asked Questions - Supplemental Application


1. The application states we must upload last year's evaluation. How can I do this when we haven't received our scorecards this year?

  • Scorecards are not needed. The performance evaluation that was given at the end of year conference is sufficient.



2. How much time should I set aside to complete the supplemental application?

  • The supplemental application requires the upload of several documents such as an up-to-date resume, last year's performance evaluation and student achievement data. In addition, there are two essay prompts to complete. Please allow ample time to complete the supplemental application. It is also recommended that you save your essays in a word document before submitting in case there are any technology issues.



3. Do I need to include data and a summary for every upload for Evidence of Impact?

  • It is not required to submit data and a summary for every upload. However, data assists in the assessment of the strength of the impact. Additionally, a summary helps provide context, background information and helps establish clear connection to the applicant's role in achieving success.

  • Assignment of an assessment center date will be sent to applicants selected to advance to the next stage of the hiring process. Notifications will be made via district email. Applicants should reserve both October 5th and October 26th as potential dates for an in-person assessment.
