Procedure G11: Parent Involvement In Teacher/Staff Hiring
Parents and guardians of the district may participate in the candidate review, interview, and recommendation process for teacher and staff vacancies at the discretion of the Principal. When a vacancy is for a position shared among multiple buildings, at least one person representing each building will be invited to participate.
1. The principal will seek parent/guardian participation on the interview committee for a teacher or staff vacancy. The principal(s) will identify the number of parent/guardian slots to be filled on the interview committee.
2. At the principal’s discretion the following practices may be followed:
3. The principal(s) will notify the Human Resources Office of the names and addresses of the parent/guardian representative(s) who will participate for each interview process.
4. The parent/guardian representative(s) will be a full participant in all facets of the staff recommendation process. This includes application review, interviewing, voting on a recommended candidate to the Superintendent, and participation in any review sessions to resolve any conflicts or problems that might arise if there are questions concerning the recommendation. The parent/guardian will be held to the same requirements of confidentiality regarding the process as staff on the committee.
