Employment Process

The online application is for use by teachers, administrators, paraprofessionals and other professionals applying for a position.

Application Process

Once your application is received in Human Resources, processing begins. This can take from two to four weeks and includes sending for references and completing the criminal history check. You will be notified by Human Resources if you need to schedule a departmental interview. Due to the high volume of applications, Sharyland ISD cannot interview all applicants.

Hiring Process

Only offers for employment from Human Resources to an applicant are valid offers. You will be notified by Human Resources if you are to receive an offer of employment.

Interview Process
Principals will contact you directly for campus interviews.

In order to make the interviewing process as streamlined as possible, please do not contact principals directly by telephoning or "just stopping by" his/her office. Principals are very busy, especially during the spring hiring season; however - as an optional activity, you may send a principal a written letter of interest with a resume. A list of addresses is available through the Sharyland ISD web page.


Sharyland ISD accepts 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 in April, May and June; therefore, applicants interested in being considered for the fall hiring should turn in an application as early as January.
