Response Notes

Responsive to this request, hires and promotions by content area can be found on page 5 of the 2021 Annual Human Resources report as presented to the Board on February 10, 2022: https://go.boarddocs.com/mabe/hcpssmd/Board.nsf/files/CB9R9E6CE201/$file/02%2010%202022%20Office%20of%20Human%20Resources%20Annual%20Report%20BR.pdf. Of those positions filled (since the prior MPIA for 2019), our application vendor indicates the total number of teacher applications was 3,009 during the reporting period of October 2019 to October 2020 for the 2020 chart. Of those applicants, 435 were for Special Education positions. During the reporting period of October 2020 to October 2021 for the 2021 chart, our application vendor indicates the total number of teacher applications was 2,705. Of those applicants, 369 were for Special Education positions. Please note, an applicant may apply for more than one position and the same person may be counted twice in an application pool. HCPSS has made substantial efforts to ensure the accuracy of this information; however, data collection and reporting is consistently subject to change. Please be mindful when comparing data as many variances can occur between reports based on date pulled, parameters used, categories included, etc.
