Hiring processes should include ways to evaluate candidates as to their actual knowledge, skills and abilities to work effectively, respectfully, and inclusively with all current and future members of the school community – colleagues, students, parents, alumni and community members — as well as to differentiate these candidates from others without these critical skills. This Institute is designed to provide participants with effective tools they can adapt for use at their own schools. Participants will work together to identify various dimensions of cultural competence and will focus on those which represent the most critical needs for positions in their particular schools. They will learn practical methods and strategies, including ways to design appropriate advertisements, improve paper screening procedures, and write effective interview and reference questions.
