Identifying, securing and nurturing the talent of our teachers and staff will be of the utmost importance to the vitality, diversity and longevity of CHCS. As such, the recruitment, selection and hiring of CHCS staff is guided by the following core tenets.
Policy #1: Fairness
Clear objectives and processes that are open, impartial, and fair will guide the recruitment, selection, and hiring process. All candidates will have an equal opportunity to present themselves for consideration by the selection team or the principal. The selection process will be multi-faceted in order to uncover the special talents and skills of each candidate.
Policy #2: Diversity
We will actively recruit and select teachers of varying ages, gender, race, and ethnicity to create a diverse teaching staff that reflects the student population and the larger community. We will also recruit, select, and hire staff in a manner that generates staff with varied levels of experience and different areas of expertise.
Policy #3: Local Recruitment
CHCS values local experience and we will make a concerted effort to recruit as many faculty and staff members as possible from the local community. CHCS's start-up budget will include funds to support this effort.
Policy #4: Expanded Recruitment Efforts
If qualified candidates are not found at the district level, the search may expand to the state level and, if necessary, to the national level.
Policy #5: Leadership Team, Instructional Staff, and Support Staff Recruitment
The principal will be supported by the CHCS Board in recruiting the leadership team, which can include, but not be limited to, the Principal, Business Manager, Lead Teacher(s) and Parent and/or Community Liaison. This leadership team may participate in the recruitment and selection of the remainder of the school staff, in some cases recommending final candidates. The principal, however, ultimately is accountable for all hiring decisions.
Policy #6: CHCS Staffing Profiles, Programs, and Hiring Criteria
The recruitment, selection, and hiring process must be completed with a strong working knowledge of the CHCS staffing model in mind. Before beginning to recruit faculty and staff members, the principal and other participating in hiring must review CHCS’s complete staffing profile, which outlines the composition of the desired school staff. In addition to the specific content knowledge required of each candidate, employment decisions will be based upon the candidates experience in and grasp of pedagogy, content, classroom management, professional responsibilities, professional relationships, family involvement, and school community.
Policy #7: Fully Informed Candidates
Candidates must be apprised of the specific expectations and responsibilities encompassed by their acceptance of a position at CHCS. This disclosure must include a thorough description of CHCS’s school design and how it differs from schools the candidate may have taught in previously. The Governing Board with input and recommendation of the Principal will make final decisions regarding the hiring or dismissal of CHCS personnel.
