Developed over a 2-year period, this manual is a guide for school district officials in developing fair and consistent hiring procedures. Section 1 is a brief compilation of the federal laws and regulations governing hiring practices in the public elementary and secondary schools. It includes legislation relating to civil rights, fair employment practices, and disability benefits. Section 2 covers the major components of the selection and hiring process, through a sampling of available forms and procedures. These include a procedural flow chart, recommended personnel policies, and sample job descriptions, interview and application forms, and contracts. These materials are intended for use in hiring superintendents and principals, though adaptations are suggested for other school district personnel. Section 3, "Other Issues," includes tips on the use of outside agencies in the hiring process, affirmative action guidelines, and suggestions for handling discrimination charges. A bibliography is included. (TE)
