Hi everyone, I got a middle school teaching position on June 26th. I interviewed that day and got the call about an hour later. The next day I went in to meet the superintendent and filled out all forms (direct deposit, W4, etc) and got my ID. I did NOT sign a contract because I had to be officially approved by the school committee meeting about 2 weeks later. I also did not get the final say on what grade level... it was not in the ad and when I asked they said I’d hear from dept coordinator after the meeting. Well the meeting came and went (July 10th), I did not hear anything from anyone or hear my name in the video of the meeting. I then got a welcome email from the assistant super welcoming me to the district and saying I’d hear from an induction coach soon. I was also invited to a PD later in the summer. I replied and asked if I should have heard anything more about the school committee meeting. She said I was all set and all appointments were approved. I also got the school calendar in the mail with a bumper sticker for the school. Beyond this, I have not heard anything. We do not start until late August, but I can’t help feeling uneasy. I haven’t signed a contract yet but in all other ways seem to be “official.” Does any of this jump out as strange to anyone or am I overreacting? I want to start planning and reading texts I will be teaching but I feel that there is nothing I can do to get that info. I don’t have the contact information for anyone except HR and the assistant superintendent who has already said I’m all set.
