Opportunity Culture roles have attracted great teachers across the country, producing strong recruiting results for schools of all kinds. But having great roles is not enough. Early, active recruitment and strong communications are essential to reach great candidates—both within a district and from elsewhere—and encourage them to apply for Opportunity Culture roles. Some Opportunity Culture schools begin active recruitment the prior fall, rather than waiting until spring or summer.
Districts that delay or rely on passive strategies—waiting for candidates to find out about available positions and apply—will not get the recruitment results they want and need to spread excellence throughout schools.
This four-step Recruitment Action Planner for Districts walks districts through the key recruiting steps.
Each step includes actions and linked tools, which are also available below. The planner also explains details and considerations for the key steps.
The major recruiting steps covered include:
- Identify the Hiring Need
- Prepare For Outreach
- Begin Active Recruitment and Outreach
- Support Schools’ Recruitment
