    I went for an interview Monday and when I was done the principal walked me out and said I did a great job--that I would hear something by the end of the week. I did a follow up email Tuesday night thanking him and his panel and he replied Wednesday morning saying the Board meets Thursday night so he'd contact me Friday. He also said I was very impressive. One of the teachers on the panel's grandma is friends with my MIL and she said she was confident I was going to be offered the job.

    Anyways, so now it's Friday and I still haven't heard anything?? Come Monday, should I initiate contact or wait it out? It's the suspense that's killing me of course--I know if I got the job, they will contact me--eventually---but still I want to know what's going on! No, I didn't get it or Yes, I did or there's some type of hold up--whatever!

    I'm not too worried about a job because I already have one, but still!

    WWYD?

    This may not be the best advice but if it's 8pm and you still haven't heard anything then I would just shoot him a quick email saying you are very much interested in the position and you hope they were able to reach a decision.

    Wait until Monday, I served on the interview team at my school and our principal is waiting until Monday to tell everyone.

    I've been getting the same advice...call Monday :) If our contracts are not sent out on Monday then I will call or email HR!

    It's a long shot, but check the board meeting minutes on the district's website. They should publish them. Some districts will actually have the candidate's name there and whether the board approved them or not. I know my dad's district does that. Mine just says "approved HR recommendations." It's a worth looking at just in case it's there though.

    Waiting is so hard. Especially when he told you about being contacted and no word. Over the weekend is the worst. Could be he was just extremely busy, but check the board minutes like Waterfall suggested...if they're posted online, best of luck.

    I'm in the same boat as far as waiting. It is difficult.

    Unfortunately, they don't publish minutes--I've checked every feasible place.

    I'm not sure if I will initiate contact Monday or not. Maybe I should let Monday go by, and if I don't hear anything contact on Tuesday? I do really need to know because my current principal needs to know if she has to post my position or not and start interviewing for my replacement.

    I would wait until Tuesday...it will be hard, but do your best to wait until then. :)

    And for what it's worth- my district doesn't publish minutes until the are approved the following month.
