New School Hiring Information

Thank you for your interest in Weber School District and the employment opportunities at West Field High School, Mountain View Junior High School, and our new yet-to-be-named elementary school. We are excited about the opening of these schools for the 2024/25 school year. We have already heard from many great educators who want to be a part of the new schools, so we want to explain the process for staffing these schools. While the timing of the job postings may differ slightly due to the number of needed positions, the hiring process will be consistent for all three schools. This plan will be updated continuously based on the boundary process and enrollment needs at the schools.

The following plan will be used to facilitate the application and hiring process for teaching positions:

Department Head Hiring: The hiring of the department heads at West Field and Mountain View will be open to all applicants, inside and outside of Weber School District. Once hired, department heads will then be asked to be a part of future hiring committees. These positions will be opened in early November 2023.

Certified Hiring Round One: The initial round of interviews will be open to all certified employees from the impacted schools interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will be posted in early December 2023.

Certified Hiring Round Two: The second round of interviews will be open to all certified in-district employees interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will be posted in January 2024.

After Certified Hiring Round Two, we will have been able to identify all displaced employees. Those employees will be notified and walked through the process of applying for open positions at other Weber School District schools. 

Certified Hiring Round Three: The third round of interviews will be open to all certified in-district and out-of-district employees interested in positions at West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school. Applicants will be required to apply and interview for those positions but are not guaranteed to be selected for any open positions. For West Field and Mountain View, these positions will likely be posted in late February 2024.

As we work through the hiring process, it is important to keep in mind the following factors:

  • Due to the likely reduction of students at schools once the boundaries for West Field HS, Mountain View JH, and the elementary school become official, staffing needs at those schools may also be affected.
  • Schools that will have a reduction in staffing will be identified once the new boundaries are official and enrollment numbers are calculated. 
  • To ensure that no school is severely impacted by a loss of employees, Weber School District will limit the number of employees it hires from an impacted school to the new schools. This limit will be proportional to the number of students leaving due to the boundary adjustment. For example, if a school's student enrollment decreases by 25% as a result of the boundary change, the impacted school's staffing will be reduced by no more than 25% as well, spread across all curricular areas. In other words, no more than 25% of the impacted school's staff will be hired for the new schools.
  • Potentially displaced employees will be identified and notified as outlined in the employee agreement. All efforts will be made to work with and support the displaced employee to identify and secure placement in the most advantageous situation for their future employment. All displaced employees should be identified and notified prior to the third round of hiring.
