Application Process & Details
Thank you for your interest in employment with Kingsport City Schools (KCS).
application process details
All applications for a position with KCS are submitted on-line. Applicants must create an account in FastTrack (the on-line application system). You will automatically be connected to the FastTrack application system by accessing the links below to view positions, create an account, or apply for a position.
Current KCS employees will need to use a personal email to create an account. If an employee has previously applied for a position using FastTrack, you will need to use the same login information from your original profile. Your "k12k" email cannot be used in the FastTrack system. If you have any difficulty in accessing or creating an account, please contact HR.
Applications will be kept on file for one year from the last time updated.
Three (3) completed references (non-family members) are required for consideration for a position with Kingsport City Schools. You can submit your application prior to references being returned for most positions other than substitute positions. At least three (3) references (non-family members) must be returned before any substitute position may be submitted.
The following applies to all k-12 teacher applicants
All applicants for 2017-2018 teaching positions must complete the following steps:
1. Fill out the on-line application through the KCS website (see below for how to view and apply for positions).
- To start the application process, applicants may fill out a "generic" teacher application, such as Elementary Teacher, High School Teacher, SPED Teacher, etc.
- However, please note that school-specific job postings will be provided throughout the Spring and Summer. To be considered for a position, applicants must attach their applications to the school-specific job postings.
- Applicants should attach their applications to all positions for which they want to be considered.
2. Complete the on-line pre-hire assessment as part of the application process. Applications will not be considered until the hiring assessment is complete. Please use the link below to access the assessment.
- Once you access the link, you will go to "Apply" for a job and then "Sign Up" to create an account. Follow the steps to complete the account set up and you are ready to complete the assessment.
- You are given 90 minutes to complete the assessment, with an average completion time of 45-60 minutes. You cannot re-start the assessment once you begin, so please schedule your time accordingly.
- Please note that you do not need to attach a resume or provide any other "application" information in the TeacherMatch system. Applications and any attachments are viewed in the application system listed under number 1 above.
Any applicants who previously participated in a screening with Kingsport City Schools will need to complete the new on-line hiring assessment to be considered for a position in 2017-2018. This will replace the in-person screening requirement previously in place.
Teachers currently employed with KCS do not have to complete the assessment if they would like to apply for an open position within the district.
Results of the assessments are provided to KCS Human Resources Department and District Administrators only.
If you need assistance with this process please contact Tabatha Graham, HR Assistant, at email@example.com
or (423) 378-2116.
