In preparation for anticipated future vacancies, CMS maintains a pool of potential candidates who have demonstrated their qualification for principal and/or assistant principal roles through a rigorous talent pool selection process. When a new principal or assistant principal vacancy is confirmed, candidates in the Principal and Assistant Principal Talent Pools will be invited to apply. Current CMS principals and assistant principals are automatically considered candidates of their respective talent pool and are eligible for open positions.
Principal Talent Pool: Our commitment is to have a selection process that is transparent and respects the profession of CMS principal. We have designed our Principal Talent Pool process to provide applicants with the opportunity to demonstrate their qualifications as they relate to what is required on the job. Candidates are permitted to apply once between July 2017 and June 2018.
Assistant Principal Talent Pool: Our commitment is to have a selection process that is transparent and respects the profession of CMS assistant principal. We have redesigned our Assistant Principal Talent Pool process to provide applicants with the opportunity to demonstrate their qualifications as they relate to what is required on the job. Candidates are permitted to apply once between July 2017 and June 2018.
