New Certificated Employee FAQs

NEW CERTIFICATED EMPLOYEE FAQs

Will new certificated staff have mandatory inservice days?
Yes.  Attendance is mandatory at the District New Teacher Orientation on August 18 & 19, 2020.  Detailed information will be sent from the Teaching & Learning Department during the summer.  In addition, buildings and departments may have meetings and/or trainings in August.  Please contact your principal for dates.

Will I be issued a district laptop?
Yes.  New certificated staff members receive a district-issued laptop through our Technology Department once their hire is approved by the Board of Directors and cleared through Human Resources.  Watch your email for more information and available pick-up dates.

When will I receive and have access to my district email account?
An email account will be requested for you upon completion of your HR orientation.  Instructions for set up and accessing your account will be provided in conjunction with your laptop pick-up.

When will I receive my district badge?
Badges will be available to you at the District New Teacher Orientation in August.  Badges are used for identification purposes as well as your key to enter your assigned building.

When will I receive my contract?
Your teaching contract and provisional rider will be emailed once the Board of Directors has taken action.  The 2019-20 salary schedule can be found on our website.  The 2020-21 salary schedule will be uploaded as soon as it is approved and available.

How do I know how much I’ll be paid?
You will be placed at BA+0, step 0, until HR receives and processes all of your official transcripts, verifications of employment, and clock hours. Official transcripts must be on transcript paper or can be emailed directly from your college or university to Human Resources at hrforms@tahomasd.us. Copies of transcripts, or transcripts emailed from an employee are not considered official. For further information about 2020-2021 salary and benefits for teachers, click here.
