The Pre-Qualified Principal List application process will reopen December 2, 2019, through January 31, 2020. All application materials including references are due no later than the application deadline of January 31, 2020. Sitting or veteran MCPS principals may apply directly to principal vacancies. They DO NOT need to apply to the Pre-Qualified Principal List posting.
MCPS employees who are NOT current or veteran principals, as well as experienced administrators from outside the district, MUST apply to the Pre-Qualified Principal List posting. This process involves the following:
If applicants successfully complete the items above, they will be entered on a list of pre-qualified principal candidates who are eligible to apply to specific school principal vacancies.
Pre-qualified principal candidates who are selected to interview for specific school principal vacancies will participate in a community panel interview, and selected finalists will then interview with the superintendent.
Important: Initial consideration for the school-based vacancies will be based upon pre-qualified principal list eligibility. Eligibility is valid for 3 years.
Note: Evidence to show the impact of the candidate's leadership in the above competencies must be referenced in the resume, interest letter, and reference.
If you have any questions about the application process, please contact Ms. Caitlin M. Moriarty, coordinator, OHRD, at 301-315-7390 or via e-mail at Caitlin_M_Moriarty@mcpsmd.org.
