Contracted position?

Hi everyone,

The Title 1 position I interviewed for last week is a contracted position. What exactly does this mean? I know that, if hired, I would submit my time to the head office, but I am still not sure what exactly being a contracted position would entail.

Thanks...

it means you would be not a sub, not a temporary, but a real teacher with hours, pay, benefits, etc. usually subject to negotiations and the contract between the teacher's union/association and the district. It means you'd get due process for any hassles.

If you'd not be on a One Year Only contract, you'll most likely get offered an automatic renewal of your services each year.

I don't mean to sound pessimistic or scary but, of course, renewal is subject to the vagaries of the economy and tax base. In most places, the newest teachers get laid off first.

I hope you get the job and contract.

Thank you for your reply! I found out that the position is an outside service provider contract, as in I would not be a district employee. I don't know if this is good or bad, career-wise, but the hourly pay is good.
