    Q: "Where can I find Job Openings?"
    A: Ed-Join

    Frequently Asked Questions for Ed-Join
    Q: After I have completed an application, how do I apply for a job?
    A: After completing an application, go to the openings for YCUSD. At all times,
    YCUSD has a posting open for “elementary teachers” or “secondary teachers.”
    You should apply for one of these categories and in addition, if you see a specific
    posting for a specific school or grade level, also apply for that position.

    Q: If I apply for the “elementary” or “secondary” teacher postings, will I also be
    considered for all other openings?
    A: The “elementary” and “secondary” teaching postings will let the YCUSD know that
    you are interested in teaching in YCUSD. As administrators have positions open,
    they will also review all applications for these two postings. If you are interested in a
    specific job posting, you must submit your application for that position.

    Do I need to apply for each posting that I am interested in?
    A: Yes

    Q: How soon after the position closes will I receive an interview?
    A: Once the position closes, those applications will be forwarded to the
    administrator of that position. The administrator will then review applications and
    contact individuals for interviews.

    Q: How will I be contacted for an interview?
    A: You will receive a phone call from the administrator of the school.

    Q: What type of new teacher support does YCUSD provide?
    A: YCUSD is involved in the BTSA (Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment)
    and PAR (Peer Assistance and Review) Programs.

    Q: If I hold an out-of-state credential, how can I obtain a California credential?
