Well, I've lurked long enough... I have a few questions for any SLP, OT, Counselors, or Psychs who may be here...

1)In the public sector, some providers serve multiple schools and are interviewed by district personnel. I understand this site is geared more toward teachers, but for others, does the principal still conduct your interview, or is it someone from outside the school, an ISS maybe?

Frank I interviewed a few times for psych positions (to be shared between schools). #1 - sometimes just one principal interviewed me. Sometimes the iss, both principals, and other specialists were all in on the interview. #2 - I don't really remember the questions. Some about counseling, FBAs, adapting to challenges. #3 - There's really know way of of kn...See More
