Library Positions
  Summer School library positions are open to certified and classified personnel. First consideration of
  Library Staff (certified and classified) will be given to those applicants currently working at the site where
  Summer School will be held. Certified librarians from other sites will be considered second. Classified

Teachers

  sites. A letter of recommendation must accompany the teacher's complete application. Recommended
  teachers must be highly qualified, have experience, and be certified in the grade/subject for which they are
  being recommended and making application.
