YCS Internal Teacher Interviews Wrapping Up, Process Has Had Glitches

Apr 19, 2013

The interview process for internal Ypsilanti and Willow Run teacher candidates who want to continue their work with Ypsilanti Community Schools next year is just about over. 

Ypsilanti Education Association President Krista Boyer says Ypsilanti teachers have been notified that all but three of their internal candidates have been interviewed, with the last interviews taking place next week. 

Boyer says the application process was pretty smooth, but there was some confusion with the consultant hired to set up the interviews.  Teachers often found out about interviews only a day or two beforehand.

Boyer says she's been told that principals will start letting teachers know whether they're being hired, meet the qualifications but have not yet been chosen, or won't be working for Ypsilanti Community Schools on May 3rd.
