Professional Personnel Recruitment

The Cherokee County Board of Education is committed to securing and retaining highly qualified and properly certified or licensed professional staff. Cherokee County Board of Education prohibits discrimination and harassment based upon “Constitutionally-Protected Differences” and other legally protected statuses (e.g., race, age, gender, gender identity, genetic status, past or present protected military service, pregnancy, color, religion, national origin or disability).

An educator requiring or holding a non-renewable certificate will not be recommended unless, in the discretion of the Superintendent or a designee, that applicant is the most qualified for the position in question.

As education positions become available, these positions are posted on local, state and national electronic job search websites. Written announcements for certified positions are sent to appropriate colleges and universities and to the State Department of Education. Other ways in which recruitment for certified/licensed positions may occur include:
1. Encouragement of capable high school students into the profession through career-related classes and clubs, orientations and scholarship programs.
2. Strategic partnerships with Colleges of Education around the State to foster teacher placement.
3. Technology usage to identify and acquire highly qualified and talented applicants.
4. Active recruitment at University and College Recruitment fairs held throughout the year.
