As part of our efforts to connect our schools with resources and ideas, the MACS Human Resource Management Committee and MACS staff and interns have worked to develop tools and guides to help charter schools with various human resource management issues, with the eventual goal of compiling a complete Charter School Human Resource Manual.

The first released section is a full color guide to "The Employment Process - From Recruitment to Hiring." Intended for MACS Member School Directors, Business Managers, HR Managers, & Board Members, this resource includes step by step information on the process, along with an appendix full of sample tools, templates and guidebooks to assist schools in hiring staff.

Our thanks to the Former HR Committee members, to former interns Cheryl Williams and April Schmitz, and to Margaret Uttke, MACS staff, for their dedicated work on developing and writing the content, design and format for final publication.

You'll find the following for download:

  • The Employment Process: From Recruitment to Hiring
