  • Our priorities are to meet our partners’ critical needs around staffing as it relates to student achievement, to place corps members as early as possible in a teaching position that matches his/her credential area, and to cluster corps members with at least one other corps member or alumnus/a.
  • Responsibilities: Although hiring is facilitated by Teach for America, there are a number of key things for which you are responsible that are critical to your successful hiring opportunities.Awareness of Regional Placement Landscape: It’s important for you to be aware of the demographics and diversity of your future students so that you can begin thinking about how to meet their unique needs.

    3. 3. Priorities Need Fills a critical need at the school Serves specific student demographics Partner School Criteria School is Title I eligible. The majority of students are eligible for free and reduced lunch. Timing Place all corps members by first day of school Clustering Place corps members with at least one other CM or alumna/us School is historically underperforming, not met AYP or under restructuring. Has a history of teacher vacancies or high turnover rate. Hire in academic content (i.e. Math, Language Arts, Science, Special Education, etc). 3

    5. 5. Factors in Hiring Union Policies and Internal Transfer Periods Hard to Staff vs. Not Hard to Staff Potential for State Budget Cuts All of our district partners must comply with union policies that prioritize seniority. In other words, among teachers who are already employees of the Hawaii Department of Education, those with more seniority have priority on selecting schools to teach in before new teachers can be hired. This is often called an ―internal transfer‖ period. In K-12, subjects considered ―hard to staff‖ (special education and math) tend to get placed earlier than those areas that are not considered ―hard to staff‖ (elementary, social studies). All of our placement partners will likely be impacted by the potential budget cuts, which would delay hiring timelines even further. 5
    6. 6. Mechanics of Hiring Principals determine vacancies and conduct interviews Principals must work through department of education‘s human resources system to interview and hire What this means for you: Hiring is a process. Some hiring cannot be done in the spring because of: (1) difficulty projecting student enrollment due to high student mobility (2) difficulty anticipating the number of teacher vacancies. Teachers may not notify their principals that they are leaving until the summer. Principals must then allow time for ―internal transfers.‖ 6
    7. 7. Mechanics of Hiring Principals determine vacancies and conduct interviews What this means for you Principals will review your resumes and decide who to interview. Make it great. Principals must work through department of education‘s human resources system to interview and hire Ultimately, the principals, not Teach for America, will be the ones who determine which corps members are the right fit for their school. 7
    8. 8. Mechanics of Hiring 1) CMs familiarize themselves with the hiring process and timeline 2) CMs complete DOE application and online hiring survey. 3)TFA Staff will internally catalogue hiring information from survey. 4) CMs submit revised resumes to TFA staff. 5) Staff reviews CM resumes and may contact CMs to make additional changes. 6) Staff works with DOE and principals to identify vacancies. 7) Staff submits CM resumes to the DOE central office that distributes resumes to principals. 8) Principals select who they want to interview 10) CMs prepare for interviews 11) During Induction CMs interview with principals 12) Staff works with all unhired CMs to make sure they are hired by the first day of school 9) Principals may interview candidate via phone before the hiring fair or wait until the hiring fair in May. 8

    10. 10. Going where the need is Hiring is driven by need, timelines, subject area and clustering. We cannot guarantee any specific placements. Extenuating Circumstances You have a legal responsibility to provide medical care to someone We will make every effort to accommodate extenuating circumstances. You have a spouse located in a specific area Where possible, we will also try to accommodate corps members‘ preferences and interests, but we ask that you understand this is not a priority in finding a school where you can make an impact. Preferences You grew up in a placement area and attended a local school (NOT classified as extenuating circumstances) Geographic preferences due to living arrangements (e.g., living with your best friend; getting free rent) Being in the same city as friends or family Proximity to points of interest Lack of access to public transportation 10

    79. 79. ―Being flexible. The significant lack of resources that has created the need for me to be here also often causes our district and schools to operate in unexpected and less-than-ideal ways. I am here for children and will do what is necessary so I can teach them; I will prioritize their needs first.‖ 79
    80. 80. ―Embracing a generosity of spirit. I know that principals and central office staff are doing the best that they can, but are often overwhelmed and lack many resources. I will assume the best of their intentions and of situations when I encounter unexpected changes and challenges. 8080
    81. 81. ―Positivity is a must. Policies and resources impact efficiency and timelines. I know that Teach For America prioritizes hiring until every corps member is hired and will keep me informed at each stage. I will focus on the positive and on fulfilling my own responsibilities in the hiring and placement process.‖ 8181 81
