RATIONALE

Attached is a copy of tentatively planned recruiting efforts to be conducted by ACPS this school year.This document is also posted under the Human Resources tab on the divisionís website.

 

These recruiting efforts are subject to change due to the needs of the division and the unique opportunities provide by individual job fairs.Perhaps the divisionís most beneficial efforts have been through the Western Virginia Professional Education Consortium held annually at the Salem Civic Center.This yearís event will be held on Saturday, January 28, 2017 from 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.

 

New this year is the Minority Educator Recruitment Fair on February 16, 2017 in Richmond.This event is sponsored by Virginiaís Secretary of Education and the Virginia Department of Education in collaboration with the Virginia Education Associationís inaugural Teachers of Color Summit.

 

The school division also utilizes an online recruiting presence called Talent Ed Recruit & Hire.This product allows the division to recruit through multiple web posting sites. We introduced this in January of 2015.To date we have received 1032 applicants who have actively sought employment within the ACPS.

 

Finally, we reach out to regional college and university career offices posting job announcements, particularly in the difficult to staff areas.
