High School Teacher Credentialing Process

Are you a high school teacher (or school district employee) interested in teaching for the School-Based Scholars Program?  The School-Based Scholars Program is accepting applications for credentialed school district personnel who would like to teach SBS classes at their respective high schools. 

Step 1: Complete the SBS Credentialing Form.

Step 2: Collect unofficial copies of all graduate transcripts. (Official copies will be required if you are approved to teach.)

Step 3: Send the credentialling form and transcripts to prior to the deadline.

All application materials are due by February 15 of the school year prior to when you are applying to teach in the SBS program.

Step 4: All materials will be reviewed by the SBS program and the department for which you are applying to teach. You will be notified as to your status after materials have been reviewed.

Step 5: If your credentials are approved, your department will ask you to go through their hiring process. This may include an interview. Once you've been vetted and approved by the department, they will have you:

  • submit official copies of all graduate transcripts
  • fill out mandatory new hire paperwork 
  • present an unexpired passport or two forms of ID
  • complete a background check

Step 6: Departments may require new instructors to go through new hire training with the department and all SBS instructors must attend SBS Faculty Orientation and Faculty Development Training each summer.
