    Well before school started and then for two weeks afterward I did. Third week of school here...and just a couple so far--ESL and HS math. Neither of which am I qualified for!

    I hope the online app comes up soon!!! Good luck!

    I hope the system isn't down because it crashed in case there are too many applying! Ha! Get your typing fingers ready!

    School started Mon/Tuesday in my state. Yesterday, a posting went up for two pre-k teachers and then today, another posting for two pre-k teachers. All in the same district, at four different schools. There were also postings for pre-k aides at each of those schools with postings for pre-k teachers, which leads me to think the school district received some kind of grant or extra fund to add on a pre-k class to each campus. Good news for me. Cover letters and resumes have already been sent out. I think I will make calls late tomorrow afternoon about the open positions. I hope, I hope.

    Nope it said "Wednesday, scheduled maintenance" but it was just a coincidence I guess that the posting popped up. We can browse the postings we just can't apply.

    I found over the weekend, got a call to interview on Monday, interviewed on Tuesday. They said they would be calling the lucky candidate back today, but I didn't get a call. I said I could start Friday, which they said was great. Classes start 8/31.

    AC--The day isn't over yet! And sometimes the P's get busy and don't call on the day they say they will. I'd do a follow up phone call or email tomorrow afternoon. :) Good luck!

    Yeah, I've read that some received calls late in the evenings and even on the weekends. I would think that's definitely possible because of how busy principals are this time of year.

    The good news is that the day IS over in NY-- there's probably no one left in the offices to read anything that's sent.

    Would you consider emailing or faxing a cover letter and resume, along with an explanation that the server was down today? Then get up early tomorrow and apply online??

    Was this the OLAS website? I noticed that it said that my application was incomplete and I couldn't apply for anything (even though I have been all hiring season), but there was nothing in my area that I am qualified for that was posted today.

    Yup! Darn OLAS. It said yesterday that today you might have some problems retrieving your resume, etc. I didn't know that meant we couldn't apply! Well, I'll try tomorrow morning. I just thought it was funny that a new job popped up on a day where nobody could apply LOL

    I hope you got it to work TeacherNY. I use OLAS as well but there hasn't been anything new posted in my area(s) for awhile now. Good luck!

    If Jessica PM'd you the regions she looks in, the ones I look in are probably the same since we're fairly close to each other.

    I hope they call!!

    Ahh, you guys aren't in my regions. We won't be competing for jobs :) There's not much time left and their district website has 5 new jobs in other subject areas too since yesterday!! Has anyone seen a LOT of ESL and ESOL job openings around? I'm wondering if that's something to look into.

    You guys are also searching outside the OLAS network, right???

    On LI, only about half the districts are on OLAS, which means that you would still have to hit the other half, one district at a time.

    Yeah, most of the districts in my area either don't post positions at all or only post them on their websites.

    We have a cooperative recruitment site that covers the other districts in the area. I only know of one other district not on the site and i always check their website too. The private schools advertise in the newspaper which has been barren in the last few weeks.
