My sister intentionally moved to an area of Colorado where the top rated district is located. This summer, I spoke with her neighbor who happens to work at the district office. I picked his brain for a bit (my sister said I interviewed him...haha). He said that because of their test scores and the rating of their schools, they have very few positions to fill each year. The positions that do need to be filled are only filled by high-performing student teachers. They don't even consider outside people (that is, of course, unless they have some sort of connection). I found that conversation intriguing!
