How many of you submitted a résumé to the Northport school district based on the posting on Tuesday 8-27-13. You may be interested to know that at the board meeting held Monday 8-26-13 the school district told the school board that 2.5 elementary teachers will need to be hired for the 2013-2014 school year. The posting went up on the web site the late afternoon of Tuesday 8-27-13. And requested all resumes be sent by 8-29-13. In my opinion this is all smoking mirrors. Interviews for these jobs were held secretly on the morning of 8-27-13 prior to the job posting. Also if the resumes are to be in by 8-29-13 and the schools are closed on Friday 8-30-13 and Monday 9-2-13 how can there be interviews. School starts on 9-3-13. In my opinion there will be no interviews based on the posting. Lets here if you got an interview or know someone who did.

As a side note for the Northport community. Any new teachers hired as in the past several years will more often than not reside in Nassau County. My understanding is thatThe superintendent and assistant superintendent are Nassau County residents. It appears they believe the best teachers reside in Nassau. So ultimately remember that your hard earned tax dollars are going to support the community, not your own. Northport used to be very community oriented. It's changed.
