Interview Hiring Training

Would you like to see the staff of our school represent the diverse city we live in? Would you like to advocate for teachers and administrators with a strong anti-racist focus? In order to ensure that those furthest from educational justice have their voices heard, TC PTA encourages BIPOC parents and caregivers to participate in this integral part of the hiring process. See upcoming dates for the interview training and details for signing up below.
