Personnel Recruitment/Selection/Induction in Small/Rural Schools.
This paper provides tips and resources for the recruitment, selection, and induction of teachers and other school personnel. These materials were developed with rural and small schools in mind; some resources focus on Kansas. Means of recruitment are discussed, including internal search, referrals, college and university placement services, professional organizations, and advertisements. Steps in the selection process are outlined. An overview is presented of induction of beginning teachers, desired outcomes of induction, information needs of beginning teachers, the nature of personal adjustment to the workplace, and necessary components of the induction process. This paper also includes components of a job description; a sample job description; sample selection criteria for a sixth-grade teaching position and a high school English teaching position; interview questions for teaching applicants; a sample job posting; questions for an employment application, with examples of discriminatory and nondiscriminatory questions; application forms for teachers, nonprofessional personnel, and principals; sample acceptance and rejection letters; a listing of Kansas colleges and universities with teacher placement services; and a listing of Kansas professional organizations that advertise administrator vacancies.
