High-Leverage Strategies to Educator Recruitment and Hiring: Workshop Series for LEAs

Creating Special Educator Job Descriptions to Attract Your Best-fit Candidates


Session Dates

Tuesday April 05, 2022 12:00 PM - 1:15 PM - Webinar

Recruiting candidates for special education roles can be especially challenging. Often, the details in a posted job description present a special education applicant’s first impression of a school or LEA. This session will include some of the basic practices from Session 3 ("Creating job descriptions to attract your best-fit general education teacher candidates"), but tailor the suggested practices so that job descriptions can better attract special education candidates—for example, by showing how the school will support and promote collaboration for special educators.

Target Audience

The workshops are intended for participants whose responsibilities include: recruiting educators; setting hiring policy and practices; conducting interviews or other selection processes; and/or connecting with educator preparation programs.
