Application and Hiring Process

We are most interested in finding the best candidate for the job, and that candidate may be the one who comes from a less traditional background. We would encourage you to apply, even if you don’t believe you meet every one of our qualifications described. If you are unsure whether you meet the qualifications of this position, or how this would be determined, please feel free to contact the Chief Human Resource Officer, Kate Marrone: kate.marrone@lblesd.k12.or.us. to discuss your application.
