Below are the general steps in applying for an Administrative, Certified or Support position in the Rockwood School District.
If you are an internal applicant, eligible for transfer, you will log into the system using the INTERNAL button on the top right corner of the application page. For more information see Regulation 4210 - Professional Staff Assignments and Transfer. For information on Support transfers see page 12 of the Support Staff Handbook.
Internal Certified Applicants are defined as Rockwood School District Teachers on a Tenure, Probationary or 2nd One-Year Only contract of 180 days or more.
Other Rockwood School District employees, including One-Year Only contract teachers on less than a 180-day contract, should follow the directions on this page to apply for external certified positions.
For External Candidates - Apply online with Recruit and Hire
Applicants must apply to a specific job posting to create an application.
For Internal Candidates - Apply online with Recruit and Hire
Applicants must apply to a specific job posting to create an application. However internal applicants will use the link found in the top right corner that says "Internal".
For Administrative positions, applicants to be interviewed will be selected by the Applicant Screening Committee. If you are selected for an interview, you will be contacted shortly after the posted "screening to begin" date to schedule a Screening Interview. For those who advance, Building and Final Interviews will be conducted before a recommendation is made.
For Certified positions, principals will first consider internal applicants. If needed, principals will screen the online applicants and choose the candidates for building interviews that match the criteria for their openings. Building interviews can be a phone interview or in-person interview. Types of interviews may be the principal and/or assistant principal, a committee, a team of teachers, counselors and other certified staff in addition to the building principal.
For Support positions, building administrators will first consider internal applicants. If needed, building administrators will screen applicants and choose the candidates for building interviews that match the criteria for the openings. Building interviews may include a committee of current staff in addition to a building/department administrator.
After the successful candidate has been selected, a recommendation will be sent to the Human Resources Department. The finalist, when chosen, will receive an offer from the Human Resources and a recommendation will be taken to the Board of Education for approval. Unsuccessful candidates who interview in our process will be contacted to let them know that the position has been filled.
