Earlier today I posted the “Notice of Vacancy” sent out by Huntley School District 158. I noticed that it did not seem to mesh with school board policy.
Now the district has sent out a revised version of its original notice, which is below.
The difference seems to be that three reference letters are now not required, but may still be submitted with one’s resume.
Maybe you can find other differences. The original requirements are found here.
