What is the new AP application process?
Application process.
How was this process created?
The Holdsworth/Klein Collaborative Selection Working Group spent the fall and winter of 2017-2018 envisioning and designing a new, transparent AP selection process that is fully aligned to Profile of a Leader. Throughout the process, the working group received feedback from Principals and central office staff members on the design of the process.
When does the new process launch?
The new application will open June 1st. The Applicant Review Committee will begin reviewing applications in July 2018.
How is this process different from AP selection processes that Klein has had in the past?

In designing this new AP process, the Selection Committee had several goals in mind:

  • Increase Transparency to create a process that is clear and fair to all
  • Create a process that is easy for applicants and for hiring managers
  • Align all elements of the selection process to Profile of a Leader

Unlike our previous processes, the new AP selection process is transparent at all stages, aligned to Profile of a Leader, and eases the burden on Principals as they make hiring decisions. 

What is the selection criteria?
ready to take on leadership as a Klein ISD AP principal should internalize and demonstrate the characteristics outlined in Klein’s Profile of a Leader, which can be found in Klein ISD's Guiding Documents.

Leaders will be selected based on their ability to demonstrate the Profile of a Leader competencies and behavior and to lead others in the organization towards these goals. All candidates are expected to have completed their Master’s degree in a related field, have obtained a standard, probationary or intern certificate, and have at least 2 years of teaching experience.
