do schools do much hiring in August?

Is there still hope or is it getting too late? Only 1 week left in July and I haven't had 1 interview. Do many schools still hire in August? Many of the applications I've submitted haven't even been looked at, at least on school spring. I go back to my current job the last week of August so I can't cut it that close. Just hoping to hear that there's still some hope. Does anyone know of people that were hired in August?

thanks

Our district hires most teachers in late August. Probably over 90 percent of our hires happen in late August. We start last week of August, too. We have an early retirement incentive happening right now and people need to decide if they will be retiring by the first week of August. That could open some positions. I donít know if other places are doing similar things or not.

There’s always a good chance for August. Don’t give up. I was hired in October.

I think this year in particular, more hires are likely to happen later. Schools are still finalizing what they will be doing in this coming year. I think they are being cautious with hiring. I know many schools who usually hire before now and haven't done anything yet as they figure out what to do.

One large, excellent district near me just posted 9 elementary openings in 1 day. I think this year there are going to be a ton of last minute openings because teachers are deciding not to return to the classroom. I also think districts were VERY stingy with numbers and are finding they're having to open up extra sections.

Keep looking, apply to everything you're qualified for (you can do anything for a year) and be prepared to interview on a moment's notice. Years ago I applied for a job, emailed the P and got a call 5 minutes later asking if I could come interview in 2 hours (why yes, I can). It was all good. Once August hits, things move very quickly.

Good luck.

Yes, I know several places that have hired in August. We're still hoping to get another lower grade teacher if our numbers are high enough. If they approve it, we'll be hiring at the last minute. I hate that, but they won't approve another teacher unless we get 4 more students registered. School starts in 2 weeks, so that's going to be so last minute for someone!

Chiming in a bit late, but keep applying. I applied to a lot of places about a month ago that are just getting back to me now asking to interview in August. Many districts around here are just announcing their school opening plans, so I'm sure that they'll have a good idea about enrollment and how many teachers they will need in the next week or two. Good luck and well wishes!

In the month of August, my school has lost 2 teachers. The replacement for one of them came from another school in the area, so that's another open job!I say, keep hope alive!
