Our policy is to fill each position with the best candidate available while considering the District’s commitment to equal opportunity employment. Because of the large number of applicants for many of our jobs, it is not possible to interview everyone. Each application is carefully reviewed to ensure the training and/or experience of the applicants selected for interview meet the requirements of the job description. Usually, within 10 working days after the application filing date, applicants are contacted by telephone if they have been selected for an interview.
