In order to apply to the posting, candidates must complete the following steps:

  • After Candidates complete their My Leadership Profile on BetterEducate, candidates download and save the PDF document to their computer.

  • Create a profile on ATE.  Candidates will be required to upload their cover letter and resume.  Ensure your resume is in a format where the dates of your educational background, additional qualifications/professional certifications and work experience are in chronological order.  Note:  the alignment of your work experience is captured in My Leadership Profile within the BetterEducate tool and is not required to be included in your resume.

  • Once the ATE profile/portfolio has been completed, candidates will then upload their saved My Leadership Profile (PDF) to the Additional documents section, which can be found under Supporting documents.

  • The Selection Team will review all applications for eligibility by criteria and determine a list of candidates to move forward to Stage 2.

The in person interview is as follows: 

  • The candidate shall respond to a variety of interview questions

  • The Selection Team will review and score Stage 2 responses and determine a short-list to move forward to Stage 3

References will be contacted in this final stage of the process.

  • Three (3) professional referees who have supervised you, including name and detailed contact information; one of which must be your current Superintendent/Supervisor. It is good practice in any process to pre-conference with referees prior to providing them as a reference. 

  • Candidates do not need the permission of their Superintendent/Supervisor to apply to the Superintendent Selection Process; the decision to apply is the Candidate’s.
