Are references needed before my application is considered complete?
All applicants must list a minimum of three references on the online application. When listing your references, please include administrators/supervisors for whom you have worked and who have had responsibility for observing and evaluating the quality of your work. It is your responsibility to ensure the accuracy of your references’ information. References are not contacted unless you are being considered for hire.
Do transcripts have to be official and sealed?
Unofficial college and university transcripts showing degree(s) conferred may be used to scan and attach to the online application. If recommended for a contract, the district will require an official college/university transcript.
Will Port Arthur ISD sponsor me for an H-1B visa?
Port Arthur ISD accepts all applications and requires applicants to be eligible to work in the United States. At this time, the district is sponsoring applicants for their H-1B visas.
Once I've completed the online application, what is the next step?
Administrators with vacancies will review the online applicants who have applied to the Online Application Job Board and will select eligible candidates for interviews. Once a candidate has been offered a position, a recommendation to hire will be sent to Human Resources.
May I contact the campus principals directly to inquire about vacancies?
You SHOULD NOT contact campus administrators to schedule interviews. Principals at the sites where you have applied have access to your online application. After reviewing your application, a principal may contact you to schedule a campus interview. In order for your online application to be most effective and receive full consideration in our staff planning process, it is important that you provide all the information and specific documentation requested in the instructions.
