Application Process for Licensed Professional Candidates

In addition to submitting the application, a copy of your college transcripts and teaching license must be submitted electronically. If you are currently in process of completing your degree a copy of your transcripts prior to graduation should be submitted. All documents, including transcripts, license and three letters of reference can be uploaded and attached to your application through the on-line process.

To be considered for specific openings you must apply for each opening that is of interest to you. If you are interested in multiple positions, please check all the positions that you wish to be considered for.

It is important that applications are complete and up-to-date prior to submission. Current information regarding licensure, transcripts, experience and references will be necessary for full consideration. Review your application each time prior to submission to ensure accurate information.

Our building administrators are focused on the daily educational needs of students; therefore we ask that candidates do not contact building principals to express interest in a position. The Human Resources department will manage your application and can provide information regarding the status of your application and any open positions.

Successful job candidates will be contacted for interviews. Not all applicants will receive an interview. The recruitment process for Lee’s Summit Schools is year round, but specific staffing needs may not be determined until late spring.

Application Process for Support Staff Candidates

In addition to submitting the application, any additional information required for the position (i.e. resume, references, and transcripts) must be submitted electronically. Please do not send any paper documents. All documents can be uploaded and attached to your application through the on-line process.

NOTE: Applications will remain active for a period of two years. Upon the third year, the application will be placed in an inactive file.
