Policy GBN

It is the desire of the Lynchburg City School Board to recruit, hire, and retain the best possible qualified applicants.

The Superintendent is responsible for developing procedures for advertising vacancies and new positions. Those procedures will be designed to ensure that all openings are properly advertised to give all interested and qualified parties the opportunity to apply. While most positions will be filled using those procedures, the School Board may, at the request of the Superintendent, fill positions in other ways. For example, the School Board may authorize the filling of a position to accommodate the disability of an employee, to transfer an employee when it is determined to be in the best interest of the school division, to satisfy the rights of employees returning from leave, to move an employee whose performance is unsuccessful to a position in which he or she might be successful, or to discipline an employee for conduct deficiencies.

Current division employees will be given an opportunity to apply for positions for which they are qualified.
Vacancies and new positions within the division are advertised on the internet.

The applicant determined to be the best qualified shall be selected for a vacant or new position, regardless of whether the applicant is an internal or external candidate.

Application for employment in the Lynchburg City Schools shall be made online at the Lynchburg City Schools’ website, www.lcsedu.net. Applicants can call the Personnel Department for assistance.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to furnish accurate information, and any falsification of either information or credentials is cause for dismissal or refusal to employ.
