Hiring of Faculty and Staff

A happier more productive and less secretive atmosphere exists in a school that supports its teachers' ambitions. Obstacles should not be placed in the way of a faculty member who is, without violating a contract, looking for different employment.

  • A school should neither hire nor make an offer for immediate employment to a teacher or administrator whose contract with another school is in force.
  • A school should not hire a teacher or administrator without consulting the school or schools where the candidate works or has previously worked.
  • Written recommendations should be as clear and candid as possible within the bounds of good taste and contemporary standards. At least one oral discussion of a candidate's qualifications should be conducted between schools before an offer is made.
  • Heads should not feel obligated to search consultants to suggest or comment on candidates from schools other than their own.
  • Under normal circumstances, names should be suggested or comments made to consultants or to others involved in a search only with the advice and consent of the candidate in question.
  • Surreptitious efforts by one school to recruit an employee of another school should not be made. All teachers and administrators, however, may on their own initiative explore opportunities elsewhere in confidence.
