One of my best friends works for the online school for a district an hour away. There may be a position opening up (the other teacher she works with is going to be transfering to a PE position at another school). It's a non-traditional teaching job, monitoring students who are taking online courses - mostly grading, calling students who haven't been logging in and doing their work, and some tutoring. My friend is really keen for me to work with here and thinks that I'd do really well, especially with my customer service background. She even offered to help me prepare if I get an interview. What I'm wondering is if she would be part of my interview? She would be part of the hiring committee should a position open up. Can friends be involved in the interview process or is it a conflict of interest? I know you have to disclose if a relative works in the same district, but not friends.
