Our selection process helps us determine if you’re the right fit for LEAD Public Schools and helps you determine if LEAD Public Schools is the right fit for you. As a candidate, here’s what you can expect:

Step 1: Application Review

We review your resume and cover letter thoroughly to determine whether your qualifications are a strong match. As we get hundreds of applications annually for all of our positions, we do not have the capacity to reach out to each candidate that applies and we are unable to accept phone calls regarding application status.  We will contact you only if you are invited to advance in the selection process.

Step 2: Video Interview

If you are invited to advance in the selection process you will likely be asked to complete a video interview through HireVue. This helps us get to know you better by finding out about your interests and experience.

Step 3: Interviews and Demonstration Lesson

If you are invited to move forward after completing the video interview, you can expect to participate in phone interviews.  Local candidates will be asked to visit the school site and teach a demonstration lesson.  Out-of-town candidates will be asked to submit a recorded lesson of their teaching.

Step 4: References

Before extending an offer, LEAD Public Schools will request and contact professional references.

These steps represent a typical process, but your experience may vary. Our hiring team thoughtfully designs each hiring process to be as efficient as possible given the specific circumstances of the vacancy.
