Hi All, I Interviewed and signed a provisional contract on June 5th. It basically states that I will report for work after my references, finger prints, etc. clear. I have signed all the paperwork they have given me thus far. I even visited my school, classroom, etc. was given an email address.... I was finger printed 2 weeks ago and the districts say they have not received them yet? Seems like a long time. They county office say they sent them to the DOJ. I can't sign a formal contract until these go through. I'm not worried about clearance, it just seems to be taking a REALLY long time. I'm starting get a little antsy. I know things slow down in the summer, but I need to feel like I have an "official" contract. I've heard too many stories about districts "going in a different direction" after a job offer. I'm not sure what else I can do without nagging them. I don't recall other districts taking this long. Does this sound normal? I'm supposed to start at the end of the month. Help!!
