Teacher Placement Information

When & What to Send

The purpose:
A placement file is a compilation of your personal and professional data assembled to provide employers with necessary information on your background and qualifications. 

When to send:
Your file should be sent to the principal or superintendent that you are interviewing with. Your file will be sent at your request, therefore you must authorize its release. The file is not sent automatically when you first apply or inquire about a position. Please give the Career Development Center four business days advance notice so that we have time to copy your file and mail it out. If you have an email address you must give a full 48 hour business day of advance notice.
