It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all necessary documentation has been received. After the file is complete, the Human Resources department will evaluate the application and applicants will be notified of next steps. GATE Program Application Process
School principals may not be contacted until applicants have completed all district requirements, submitted their application for educator certification to the SCSDE and received a GATE Statement of Eligibility Letter. Those who receive a Statement of Eligibility Letter will then be able to send a letter of interest and resume to the schools’ principals who have posted vacancies on GCSD Current Positions.
