Applying for Classified / Non-Instructional Positions
at Nassau BOCES

  • Step 1—Application

    Individuals seeking employment for classified/non-instructional positions at Nassau BOCES must submit a cover letter indicating the search number and position applied for, a completed application, a resume and a signed Authority to Release Information form. When we receive the above information and materials, we will place all applications in the active file and consider each candidate for employment.

    Step 2—Screening

    We at Nassau BOCES review each and every application to determine if the applicant meets the credential requirements for the designated position. This helps ensure that we find the most suitable candidates for current and anticipated vacancies.

    Step 3—Interviews

    Once the screening process is complete, we will schedule interviews for applicants who meet our credential requirements and whose qualifications establish them as the best candidates for a particular position. (Note: Candidates may be interviewed by committee.) We verify the references of all finalists prior to a recommendation to the Superintendent.

    Step 4—Appointment

    Appointment to a position is made after a candidate has been cleared by the Nassau County Civil Service Commission, has accepted an offer and is contingent upon background clearance by the New York State Department of Education. When an offer of employment is made, a tentative salary placement is determined based on available information from the applicant. An individual is formally employed only after official action of the Nassau BOCES Board upon recommendation of the Superintendent.

    Step 5—Orientation

    New full-time hires are provided a packet of information regarding medical enrollment, health plans and other items related to the employee beginning work.
