Garden City PTA/School District Interview Committees
Parent Interview Training Packet
Sample Interview Questions
The Garden City PTA is looking for interested parents to volunteer for aiding in the interview process of our distinguished school district. The Garden City School District is unique in that it invites parents to serve on interview committees. Serving on an interview committee is an exceptional opportunity for parents to have a distinct voice in the school district’s hiring of teachers and administrators--those persons who are directly responsible for the safety and education of our children every day. The office of the Assistant Superintendent for Personnel convenes interview committees throughout the school year comprised of parents, teachers, and building administrators. They represent the initial phase of the district’s hiring process. Generally, these Interview committees meet immediately after school, Mondays through Thursdays, beginning at approximately 3:15 or 3:30. An interview committee generally meets 1-2 days, about 2-3 hours per day. The Garden City PTA expects parents to commit to the entire interview session if possible.
No interviewing experience is necessary. The district offers Interview Training Workshops every year, usually in January. For your convenience, you can attend sessions in the evening or during the day. Attendance at one of the training workshops is highly recommended, but not required, prior to service. The district training workshop addresses question development and techniques. Sample questions are also available from the PTA Interview Coordinator or your school PTA Director. The PTA will notify all parents of the training dates/times for this year. Please contact Colleen Tariche at email@example.com if you would like to volunteer to serve on an interview committee. Thank you for volunteering for the PTA and we hope you will be able to participate in this worthwhile endeavor.
