    Interested in being on a hiring team?

    In order to help with staffing interviews, all members of an interview team must participate in the SEA/SPS Joint Hiring Training.  Once you have completed the training one time, you are eligible to be a member of a hiring committee.  At Sacajawea, it is important to us to include a variety of stakeholders on each hiring team. We have very few parents trained currently, and would love to have more eligible participants. If you think you might be interested in being on a hiring committee, please plan to attend a hiring team training, and let me know you are attending.  The training only has to be taken once, and you will be eligible to participate in hiring committees at any school within Seattle Public Schools for future years.
    This year’s training schedule is attached
