I got an e-mail from the district where I student taught in and am on the preferred candidate list in... and the secretary mentioned that all the principals' in the district have the month of July off. Though a FEW might interview in July...MOST will start again on August 3rd (when they return). Am I still interested? (you need to ASK????) and would I consider a classroom assistant position if offered? (I wrote back that if offered and all full-time classroom teaching positions were filled...that I would accept an assistant position. But - saying this to YOU on AtoZ- I don't want to jump at THAT too fast.) But I thought it might be interesting to some job seekers to not fret about July if you don't hear from principals. They MIGHT have the month off.
