Hi Guys, I'm wondering what to do in the case of someone (me) applying to school districts but my current school does not know I am seeking a new job. I know that my current employer would give a high flying recommendation without a doubt (that's not the issue) - the issue is, I am working for them until August and would rather not sever the relationship now, unless an employer is really serious about offering me a job... does that make sense? I'd rather it be me who tells them that I'm not returning, rather than an administrator from a random school district calling to get reference info. I'm thinking about putting "please do not contact my current employer without my permission" - but looking at that on paper makes it look like I think my current employer will give a bad review! (which is not the case)! Anyone who has been in this same boat before - do you have any suggestions?
