    Is it professional to send a resume and cover letter directly to the school? There is a position open and I already submitted my application through an online job application thing they have set up...but should I also send it to the school?

    I believe that it is OK to send a resume to a specific school - I would also follow up with one to the Superintendent as well. Put something in your cover letters to say that you also forwarded a copy to the other...

    Absolutely.

    Address it to the principal (by name) and mention that your application is on file at the district office.

    I sent them to directly to every principal in every district I was interested in and I e-mailed them. After I signed a contract I continued to get calls after school had started. What's the worst that can happen?
