When an applicant gets recommended for a position and it has to go through the school board, does the board make a decision at the monthly school board meetings, or can it be done at any moment? I still have not heard anything from HR, and the P keeps insisting that the process takes a while and to "hang tight, it will happen". I'm getting a little worried, especially after reading some stories on here of people who thought they would have a job FOR SURE and then something happened at the last minute that left them unemployed and devastated. I'm very very scared that that'll happen to me. I went to HR today to verify that all my paperwork was on file, and they said it was. The next school board meeting is on Monday, the 8th. Should I be patient until then or is it ok to be freaking out right about now?
