Online Job Search and Application Process
The Shenandoah Community School District uses the TeachIowa to post available certified and classified positions and the AppliTrack online application system. This system enables job seekers to find, apply, and submit their application and supplemental materials online. Job seekers can also update their application at any time or add additional positions to their application.
The application process consists of multiple steps and may take 30 to 60 minutes to complete. Applicants are not required to complete the process at one time. Electronic applications are retained in "Active" status for one year. Applicants are notified when their materials are about to expire and given an opportunity to renew their application.
Many positions require supplemental documents, such as cover letters, resumes, transcripts and professional licenses. These documents may be uploaded through AppliTrack.
Beginning with the 2018-2019 school year, the Shenandoah Community School District does not accept paper applications.
Screening and Interview Process
All applications will be screened by the appropriate administrator/supervisor for the position. Applicants that meet or exceed the requirements for the position will be contacted to set up an interview. During the interview, the applicant will complete a question and answer session, receive a building tour, and have the opportunity to ask questions about the district and position.
At the conclusion of the interviews, a decision will be made whether to hire a candidate, continue the search process, or close the posting. All offers for employment are contingent upon the results of a background check and are pending school board approval. The school district will recind an offer or contract, if proper licensure isn't obtained or maintained.
All applicants will receive an email notifying them when the position has been filled. Based on qualifications, an applicant may be encouraged to apply for an alternate available position.
