Selection Process

1. Submit your Online Application

Natick uses Applitrack to manage online applications for our employment opportunities. We strongly discourage the submission of paper application packets. Each hiring administrator has access to Applitrack, and once a position has been advertised, the administrator will begin to review all applications for specific positions. Please include supporting information as attachments with your application (i.e. letters of recommendation, a copy of your MA educator's license, transcripts, resume, cover letter).

Please note: If applying for a teaching role, It is very important that you clearly state your Massachusetts DESE license area and status in your cover letter and resume since appropriate licensure is a condition of employment in all Massachusetts public schools.


2. Invitation to Interview

The hiring administrator will contact candidates of interest directly via email to schedule an interview. As long as you have completed and submitted the online application, rest assured that we have your information and will follow up with you when appropriate.

While we greatly appreciate your interest in Natick Public Schools, we ask that you do not call to follow up on your application. We currently do not have the capacity to reply to these inquiries. When a position has been filled, it will be removed from the list of open positions on our careers website.


3. Interviews

The interview process will vary depending on the position you are applying for. Click on the appropriate link to see the specific process.

Short, screening interviews are often held to give hiring administrators the opportunity to meet as many viable candidates as possible. The next step is an interview by a committee made up of administrators and subject/grade level teachers. Candidates moving on to the next level will be invited to present a demonstration lesson in front of students. 


4. Final Interview with the Superintendent

One or two candidates for each position will be recommended to interview with the Superintendent, Dr. Peter Sanchioni. The interview will take place in his office on the third floor of  Town Hall and will last about 20 minutes. At the conclusion of this interview, he will confirm a job offer with the successful candidate.


5. On-boarding

All new professional hires will meet with the Director of Human Resources, Marianne Davis, usually immediately after the interview with the Superintendent. At this meeting, the following will be reviewed:

  • salary will be determined (based on education and years of relevant experience),
  • paperwork will be reviewed to ensure official transcripts and proof of MA licensure have been provided

Once these items have been collected, an official appointment letter will be issued. The HR Director will explain the on-boarding process (including payroll paperwork and issuance of your district-provided laptop) and will answer questions.
