Agenda Item Summary: This memo is a follow-up to comments and questions raised at the
December 14, 2017 School Board meeting pertaining to ACPS’ hiring processes. Specifically, concerns were raised about ACPS losing quality teaching candidates due to delays in hiring. There is a perception that our process delays the hiring of quality candidates and it is this delay that causes ACPS to lose quality candidates to surrounding school divisions. The hiring process at ACPS is in alignment with best practices and is necessary to ensure an equitable process is completed. This memo provides a summary of the key aspects of the application and hiring process in order to clarify where delays might occur.
