Process For Submitting Applications:

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

How do I find job vacancies and submit an application?
  • Please click on the “Careers” section. Under careers, select job vacancies, click apply on the job you are interested in and complete the application.

  • Once you complete your application, click on the link “submit” at the bottom of the page.

  • Once you submit your application, you will receive an automated e-mail that your application was submitted successfully and you will be given an access code to complete the Gallup online survey. You will receive an applicant/pin number which will allow you to log back onto your application at any time thereafter as a returning applicant. The Gallup survey is necessary for employment for most educator positions in our school district. If you have taken Gallup in the past year for another school district, you will need to contact Gallup to have your score information shared with Williamson County School District. It is suggested that you give this survey your utmost and undivided attention.

What does the date mean on a vacancy posting?
  • Some postings indicate the start date of that particular vacancy. Others may indicate that the position requires the applicant to be paid at the substitute rate until the interim dates go into effect when the applicant can be paid at the regular teacher’s salary. In these cases where a sub/interim is used, the regular teacher is taking sick days and then becomes uncompensated during their time out of the classroom.

What is an interim position?
  • An interim position is a designation given to a substitute who is filling in for a teacher on leave who does not have any sick leave days available. In order to be an interim, you must be both certified and Highly Qualified in the area you are working.

If I have recommendation letters, can I include with the application?
  • Recommendation letters may be attached with your application, but they are not required and cannot be used in place of the reference forms that one of our Williamson County School Principals or administrators will complete if you are recommended for hire. It is highly possible that references will be contacted that are not listed. For example, a former principal or supervisor in a previous school or district.

When will I get to interview with a Principal?
  • Once your application is complete, you will be considered along with all others who qualify for a given vacancy. Principals have access to all applicant information and as vacancies occur your information will be reviewed. There really is no way to accurately predict when or if you will be called for an interview.

How long are applications kept on file?
  • Applications are kept on file for three years. We strongly recommend that you update your file periodically as our principals may search the most recent applicants.

How do I update my application or apply for additional positions?
  • Once your application is complete, you can update your application with the use of your applicant/pin number at any time by attaching documents or changing your mailing address and telephone number. Updating your application and applying for additional positions is a very simple task by clicking on the “Careers” link at the top right hand corner of the page. You will then see a link for vacancies, click on login prompt for returning applicants.

Do I need to reapply each time I see a new opening?
  • Once you have an application on file such as the 9-12 teacher application then you will be considered for all 9-12 vacancies as they become available. At any time that you see a new for vacancy for which you are certified and highly qualified (if applicable) you will need to apply for that opening and send a resume to the principal or supervisor as indicated in the vacancy posting. Each application on file such as 9-12 teacher application, 6-8 teacher application, PreK-5, is tied to certain selecting supervisors.

Can I retake the Gallup online survey?
  • Yes, but you may take the Gallup online survey only once a year. You will need to contact our Human Resources Department at 615-472-4050 for a Gallup access code.

What if I am interested in substitute teaching?
  • Substitute teaching opportunities are available in Williamson County. Complete the online substitute application by visiting “Careers”. You will then see a link for vacancies. Select substitute teaching and you will see a link for an application or you may select job vacancies and directly apply to the Substitute teacher position (code 600-1), click on apply and then send Elizabeth Dawson – elizabeth.dawson@wcs.edu, an email expressing your interest. We hire subs on “as needed basis.”
