THE APPLICATION PROCESS   

The first step in the application process for a teaching or administrative position is to complete the on-line application which is found at the WECAN website, http://services.education.wisc.edu/wecan.  When completing this application, please answer all questions and provide all relevant information possible.  The more complete the application and the more information you provide, the more likely that your application will be considered.

Materials required in addition to the application are identified in the Post Application instructions
.  No application shall be considered complete if additional requested materials have not been provided.  The District, in its discretion, may reject incomplete applications.  


 THE SELECTION PROCESS  
 

The Fond du Lac School District uses a site-based hiring process.  This process involves the building or department administrators of the areas in which the vacancies exist. You are not to contact these building/department administrators directly.  These administrators review applications and other materials and make a determination as to the candidates they wish to interview.  At the conclusion of the interview and screening process, the building or department administrator forwards a recommendation of employment to the Director of Human Resources.  The Director of Human Resources reviews the recommendation and, in many cases, will set up a final interview with the recommended candidate.  Following the final interview, if it is decided to make an offer of employment to the candidate, the Director of Human Resources will also review the Fond du Lac School District’s compensation and benefit packages and discuss various contingencies to the offer of employment.  

The District reserves the right to modify the above hiring process. 

 

THE OFFER OF EMPLOYMENT     

The successful candidate for employment with the Fond du Lac School District will receive an offer of employment.  That offer will be conditioned upon the candidate fulfilling the following:     

  1. Successful completion of a post offer of employment physical.  This process will include a drug screening.  This is paid for by the District, provided the physical is completed by the medical practitioner of the District’s choice.  
     
  2. Completion of the Federal I-9 Employment Eligibility Verification Form.  This form must be completed within three (3) days of the candidate’s actual start date or sooner.
     
  3. Successful completion of a criminal background check.  A criminal record does not automatically bar a candidate from employment, depending upon the circumstances of the conviction. 
     
  4. Submission of original transcripts from both undergraduate and graduate institutions to verify salary schedule placement.  
     
  5. Verification of a valid Department of Public Instruction license with the required certification for the position.

  6. Verification of prior employment and work experience.    
     
  7. If the candidate is under contract with another district, submission of a document releasing the candidate from the contract of employment with that district.  
     
  8. Board of Education action accepting the Director of Human Resource’s recommendation of employment of the candidate. 

 

In some cases, the selected candidate may be asked to start working prior to fulfilling all of the above conditions to the offer of employment.  Notwithstanding, the District reserves the right to modify the candidate’s salary schedule placement or withdraw the offer of employment if the conditions of the offer of employment are not fulfilled to the satisfaction of the District.

Your submission of the on-line application releases the District and anyone contacted as part of the reference process from any damages or liability incurred in obtaining and further disseminating reference check information.
