Policy 420 Recruitment and Selection

Public Consultation and Policy Feedback

Public consultation on this policy is now closed.

The Upper Grand District School Board (UGDSB) recognizes the importance of attracting, recruiting, and retaining a diverse group of quality candidates that can support the board in creating unparalleled, agile, and inclusive learning experiences for all. With a commitment to fair, consistent, transparent, inclusive and equitable recruitment and selection practices, the UGDSB has developed this new policy that aligns with requirements in applicable legislation, honours collective agreements, and works to provide a safe and secure learning and working environment for students and staff.

Policy 420 merges and replaces three (3) of the board’s current policies (Policy 400 – Pre-employment Screening, Policy 409 – Criminal Records Check/Offence Declaration, and Policy 419 – Teacher Hiring Practices) and brings better focus and clarity to the recruitment and selection processes. It is important to staff, students, parents, guardians, caregivers, and the community as everyone benefits from an inclusive and safe learning and working environment achieved through recruitment and selection practices that are consistent, transparent, and equitable.
