The Idaho School Boards Association is offering a new service on its website — a Job Center for educators.
The ISBA launched this Job Center service to help districts and charter schools advertise and promote their job openings for both certified and classified staff positions. The center also provides a place for potential candidates to see what positions are open around the state.
The ISBA Job Center can be found on the ISBA website. There are two options on the page: Job Seekers or Employers.
If you are interested in posting your job openings, further information can be found on the Employers page, including pricing options.
To help with job searches, the ISBA also newly created a job descriptions manual that provides qualifications, reporting structures, job goals and scope of responsibilities. The manual includes descriptions for most positions from superintendent to custodian. The templates can be customized.
Other new ISBA features
Superintendent Search Service
ISBA offers professional services to school boards seeking to fill a superintendent vacancy. This Superintendent Search Service works with the district to customize the process to meet district and community needs. ISBA staff will handle the details and present the board with options to consider in filling the superintendent position.
To assist districts in meeting the challenges brought about by labor negotiations and labor relations in general, ISBA staff will offer negotiation services. These services will be available in the Spring of 2014.=
