    Hello

    Many districts in North Texas require applicants to apply through either Region 10's or Region 11's website. I am interested in multiple districts.
    What should I do about a cover letter? There is an option to upload it on both websites. It is hard to make it personal when several schools may be looking at the same uploaded copy.

    Has anyone applied to a Region 10 or 11 district and been hired? How did you handle it?

    Thank you,

    I haven't applied through Regions 10 or 11, but I have applied to 2 other different regions. They're practically the same. What I did was not really make a reference to the particular school district, instead saying "your district". I don't know if that would help. I've thought about rewriting the letter to something a little more to my strengths, not even mentioning a district...but I'm not totally sure yet what I'm going to write.

    I never posted a cover letter on mine. Usually when I apply for a job through the site in the fine print on the job listing it says to email the principal your resume and cover letter. So far the email is how I have been contacted for interviews. Nothing directly from the site.
