    Before or after you are hired from a district as a teacher, does the employer (school district) ever ask you to submit your high school transcript along with your college transcript?

    Typically, I've heard they only ask for college but I want to be sure.

    Thanks!

    I've never even been asked for my diploma except for when I joined the Air Force.

    Yeah, I've never heard of high school transcripts being needed either. I wouldn't know what for---you just need to be certified in your state with a highly qualified degree....

    I have only ever had to give college transcripts and only those that show a degree. Meaning I went to a community college the first two years, then transferred. I have never had to show a transcript for the community college because it is listed on my transcript from the college I graduated from.

    I've never been asked for my hs transcript. The only time I was ever asked for my university transcript was when I was getting certified. None of the school districts I've worked for have seen it.

    Ironic isn't it....


    We as school systems harp the importance of good grades and how much of a difference it will make in your life, but don't even look at them when hiring employees. I haven't made a B in a class since my sophmore year of college (1990) and I just finished my second master's, but no prospective employer has noticed the grades during an interview.


    Honestly, employers (including schools) are primarily concerned that you met the minimum qualifications to get the piece of paper on the wall. When they do ask for a transcript, they are looking for the line that says "Degree awarded: ________"


    Moving through the ranks of academics and applying for the next level of education is a very different story.

    THEY JUST CARE TO KNOW HOW LONG YOU STUCK IT OUT IN ORDER FOR YOU TO GET WHERE YOU ARE AT!:whistle:

    That's what it seems to boil down to.:D
    Who gives a hoot if you had As, Bs or whatever in High School, let alone in College, unless it has to do strictly with what area you are trying to teach? They just want to know IF YOU TOOK IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND WHAT DID IT ALL COME DOWN TO! Who had the patience to stay in COLLEGE and graduate? Will they stay that long in my company, IF I HIRE HIM/HER?

    WHO TOOK THEIR GOD GIVEN TALENTS/SMARTS AND PUT THEM TO USE?
    Amen!

    I've never been asked for high school transcripts. They asked for college transcripts, but always to go in my personnel file after I had been hired.
