The Application Process
To apply for a certified staff position or as a substitute in any Kane County public school district, each of the following parts must be completed:

- Upload supplementary materials (i.e., résumé, transcript(s), references, teaching certificate & credentials)
Once all steps are completed, the application will become available to school administrators in each of the member districts. Be sure to see the details below for more information.

Part 1: online application form

The online application form consists of demographic information, educational background, work experience and three short-answer questions.
Keep in mind that this part is rarely completed in a single session; particularly when it comes to crafting the short-answer questions. It is important that the online application form contain current information: an accurate permanent address, phone number, and email address are essential. Should this or any other information change, it may be updated at any time.

Part 2: Teacher Fit
After completing your application you will be directed to take the TeacherFit assessment. The TeacherFit assessment will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. The KCHRC uses this assessment to assist administrators in identifying the top candidates for available positions.
Part 3: supplementary materials
To complete part 3, the following documents must be uploaded:
Letter of application (cover letter)
College/ University transcript(s)
3 letters of recommendation or college/ university credential file
Once you have uploaded your documents, all documents can be viewed in any of the consortium’s member districts.
What else do I need to do?
After finishing all 3 parts, the application process is complete. There is no need to send additional materials or contact a school or district which has posted a vacancy. If background and skills match the needs of a school district, applicants may be contacted. An applicant will not be contacted if, either there are no open positions, another candidate has been selected for an open position, or a match has not yet been identified.
Applications will remain active for the remainder of the recruiting year. When an application becomes inactive, applicants will be notified via e-mail and have the option to reactivate.
