Looking for an opportunity at a specific school?

MMSD does not post specific school/department vacancies for many of our positions. Instead, we have general "pool" postings. This allows us to collect applications and evaluate who are the best candidates for our schools/departments based on their strengths, interests, and availability. When you are notified you are moving on in the general pool, you are referred for school-specific vacancies as they become available. Our principals decide which referred candidates are best qualified for their vacancies. If you decline an opportunity to interview for a specific position, you remain in the pool and are eligible for other opportunities, unless you contact HR and ask to be removed from the applicant pool completely.
