    I am having technical issues with my application.

    For technical issues or questions with your application please visit our recruitment and hiring help page.

    Can I reach out to the principal to ask for an interview?

    The Olathe principals and Human Resources discourage applicants from contacting the principals directly. Principals are able to view your application and contact candidates directly for an interview.

    I haven’t heard from anyone since applying for my position. When should I expect to hear from someone?

    Unfortunately, due to the high volume of candidates applying for positions at Olathe Public Schools, we cannot contact or respond to every applicant. Our principals set their own interview schedules and attempt to complete all interviews within three weeks of when a position is posted. However, it can often take longer to complete the process and determine the candidate that will be hired for the position.

    I had an interview and have not heard back from anyone yet. When should I expect to hear from someone?

    If you have not heard any results after your interview, this means that the principal is still completing the interview process with candidates. When the candidate-for-hire is selected, they will be contacted and interviewed. Candidates that are not selected will receive a notification email from Human Resources.

    What can I do to get maximize my exposure to get an interview?

    The best tool is to use your application and the tools available within the application. These tools include completing and submitting the application, adding to your application any specific job postings that interest you, uploading any requested documents, completing the Teacher Fit test (for certified teachers).
