PHONE or ZOOM INTERVIEW: Selected applicants will participate in a phone or Zoom interview with our Talent Recruiter. This is a chance for us to learn more about you, explore how your past experiences are a fit for the school, and explain more about the position.

PRACTICE/COACHING/MEET THE TEAM: Selected applicants will be invited to meet with a current educator or school leader to discuss real life joys and challenges that come with being a part of the Kauffman School team. In some cases, we will invite you to participate in reviewing a lesson plan or engaging in a coaching session to get a feel for these particular skills that come with the job. This way, applicants are able to connect with staff and understand vital parts of the role prior to engaging in a final interview. 

FINAL INTERVIEW: Selected applicants will be invited to participate in a final interview with our team. For instructional positions, candidates will teach a sample lesson at the Kauffman School and debrief with our Principals. We’ll be looking for your ability to plan and execute a lesson, your use of classroom management techniques, and your general teaching persona. Additionally, instructional candidates will engage in an academic coaching session with our Principals. For network team positions, a final interview day will allow you to engage in a variety of tasks, meetings and focused conversations for you to see the components of a role.

REFERENCE CHECKS: On the online application you will be asked to submit three references. We will notify you before we contact your references.


Note regarding the interview process: The interview process outlined above represents a typical interview process. The process may vary due to factors including (but not limited to) candidate background/experience and type of position.
