District 39 Application Process

To establish a complete pre-employment file, please complete the online application. Your application will be retained in active status until October 1. If selected for an interview, we will contact you for further information.

NOTE: This is best done using the Firefox or Chrome web browsers.

Out of State Applicants IMPORTANT NOTE: Out-of-State applicants are required to have passed the Test of Academic Proficiency - TAP (400) test AND a content area (e.g. Elementary/Middle Grades or other content area) test before a provisional license will be issued. Special education teachers will also need to have passed the special education general curriculum test. Please pay particular attention to the test dates, as they are not offered during the summer months. You also need to plan ahead in order to ensure that you will be licensed and eligible for employment. We recommend that you not attempt to transfer out-of-state test scores, as this can be a lengthy process and may delay issuance of a license (and eligibility for a position). Please refer to the Illinois Licensure Testing System website for test dates and registration.
