Q: How does the referral process work?

A: Referrals are made at the discretion of the classified department. Referral listings are sent to the various schools or departments as positions become available. If your application is referred, the hiring principal or supervisor may schedule an interview. Individuals are selected for interview at the discretion of the appropriate principal or hiring supervisor. Applicants should not contact schools or hiring supervisors directly regarding vacancies. Further, expressing interest in a particular opening does not guarantee a referral for that opening.

Q: How can I find out if I have been referred?

A: Applicants will know if they have been referred if a principal or hiring manager contacts them for an interview.

Q: Can I contact the principal or hiring manager of the individual location that interests me?

A: Applicants should not contact schools or hiring supervisors directly regarding vacancies.

Q: Can I request that my information be sent to the principal or hiring manager of a specific location?

A: It is not necessary for an applicant to request that their information be sent to the principal or hiring manager of a specific location. Referrals are made at the discretion of the classified department.

Q: How long is my application active?

A: Your application will remain active for a period of one year.

Q: Can I use personal references?

A: Applicants should give classified reference forms to prior supervisors for completion. If an applicant does not have prior work experience then they may give classified reference forms to former teachers or professors to complete on their behalf.

Q: Can I have copies of my references that were submitted on my behalf?

A: Reference forms, once received, become the property of the district and are not available to applicants.

Q: Who should I contact for more information regarding the Praxis Para Pro or Work Keys assessment test?

A: Please call 803.736.8787 for more information.

Q: What are the aide requirements for Title I schools?

A: Title I schools are L.W. Conder Arts Integrated Magnet, Joseph Keels, Killian, and Windsor elementary schools and Clemson Road Child Development Center. Aide candidates at these schools must: possess an associates or higher degree, have completed two years (60 hours) of study at an institution of higher education or have passed a state and/or local assessment (Praxis Para Pro or Work Keys). For more information regarding the Praxis Para Pro or Work Keys assessment test, please call 803.736.8787.

Q: If I see another position posted in which I would be interested, should I re-apply?

A: No, you should not re-apply. Please log back in to your application and add the new position to the list you had previously selected.

Q: How will I know my application has been received?

A: You will receive an email indicating that your application has been received. If you do not receive an email, please log back on to your application and make sure you have entered the correct email address and/or completed the entire application.

Q: Some of my information has changed since I first completed my application. Should I send my new documents to the District Office?
