    Hi everyone,

    I had a principal in a very large district recommend me for a position this past weekend at a job fair. Now I'm just wondering what the typical turnaround time is before they send me my contract. The lady in HR said now they are reviewing my application to be sure it's complete but I know they have tons of people in the same boat as me.

    Anyone know the typical turnaround time for this? I'm just anxious and will feel better when I have something signed or in writing. Thanks!

    In my area, you don't sign a contract until after the contract is officially approved by the school board. Depending upon timing, signing could take place anytime between a couple of days and about 3-4 weeks.

    You mentioned it was a large district, so it could be weeks. Especially since they are coming off of a job fair. Lots to process.

    Congrats on the job!

    I'm in the same boat right now.

    I have been "officially offered" my position but I have not signed anything because they wait till August 1st when the budget is approved in July....I'm sweating right now until I sign.
