Human Resources

Frequently Asked Questions

The Human Resource Services staff looks forward to assisting you in the employment process. Here are a few of the standard questions that get asked.

How do I know if my application file is complete?

The following steps must be completed.

  1. Must have the appropriate online application submitted into database.
  2. Resumes and letters of interest will be submitted to campus administrators with vacancies.
  3. If offered a position with MISD, our Human Resources staff will advise on any additional paperwork needed.

When will I be interviewed?

Campus administrators will set up interviews for vacancies as they occur.

Your best opportunity for an interview is to have the appropriate application submitted online.

How long will my application file be active?

Completed online applications are retained and active for one year. It is the responsibility of the applicant to update his/her application with any changes.

Mansfield ISD accepts most applications twelve months a year. Applications are processed throughout the year, and hiring takes place throughout the year. As would be expected, the busiest hiring time is in the spring for the following school year. Most spring hiring is done during the months of April through June; therefore, applicants interested in being considered for the fall hiring should have an application submitted by March, if possible.

I am a teacher applicant who just graduated, and though I have applied for a certificate, I will not receive it for some weeks. Will my application be considered incomplete until I receive my teaching certificate?

No, we will consider your application complete if you include a letter from your university or organization recommending you for a teaching certificate to the state agency responsible for teacher certification.

I am out of state certified. What do I need to do in order to be Texas certified?

A newly hired out-of-state certified teacher is issued a one-year Texas certificate at the levels and in the areas listed on the out-of-state certificate provided the levels and areas are certifiable in Texas.

The teacher then has up to 12 months from the date of employment to take and pass the appropriate ExCET or TExES exams. Application for a one-year certificate is permissible at any time before employment but must be made within 30 days after the date of employment.

The Certification Division of the Texas Education Agency at (512) 463-8976 is willing to answer any questions or provide you with additional information.
