When will I be interviewed?

Applicants chosen for interviews will be notified by the hiring administrator.  Not all applicants are interviewed.

I am a teacher applicant who just graduated, and though I have applied for a teaching certificate, I will not receive it until after graduation.  Will my application be considered incomplete until you receive my teaching certificate?

No. We will consider your application complete if you include a letter from your university or certification program recommending you for a teaching certificate to the state agency responsible for teacher certification.

I am receiving an error message when trying to upload my documents.  How do I proceed?

The online application system will only accept documents which are 6 megatbytes or smaller. Acceptable document types are PDF, HTML, and text files.  You may convert Microsoft Word documents to PDF by using the document converter feature located on the Manage Documents page of your application workspace.

I cannot submit my application because my documents will not upload.  How do I proceed?

Applications can be submitted without uploading documents. Applications submitted without the required documents will be considered incomplete, which will delay the application process.

If you need assistance with this process, contact Human Resources at or 469-302-4117.

Do I need to submit a service record with my application?

If offered a position, service records will be requested as part of the hiring process.

May I take the Gallup® TeacherInsight™ again?

Per Gallup®, the TeacherInsight™ may be completed every 12 months for a school district.

Can I delete old documents from my application file?

No. Documents submitted become the property of McKinney ISD.  You may submit new or updated documents to your application file.  The new documents will appear in date order.

My documents are not in English.  Will McKinney ISD accept these documents?

All required application documents must be submitted in English.  Documents must be translated by an accredited academic credential evaluator.  Although we are not recommending this company, for your convenience, International Academic Credential Evaluations, Inc. at 940-383-7498 provides translation services.
