Important Notes

    • Applicants must have a current e-mail address in order to complete the district’s online application.

    • Applicants should check their e-mail regularly as SSD primarily communicates through email.

    • Applicants must have the e-mail addresses of two past or current supervisors in order to participate in the district’s electronic reference system.

    • Individuals applying for support staff positions that require at least 60 college credit hours must submit original college transcripts. Substitute teacher applicants must also follow this guideline. This is a requirement of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education, so interviews for applicable positions will not be scheduled without original transcripts.

    • Individuals applying for teacher, administrative and student support services positions, with the exception of substitutes, may still submit copies of college transcripts to have a complete application. Original transcripts will be required at a later stage in the application process.

    • All applicants must complete the online screener (StyleProfile Builder) as part of the application process.

    • HR will not schedule applicants for interviews without two complete electronic references, a complete StyleProfile and transcripts, if applicable.
