Cadre Early Hiring Program

Early Hiring of Highly Qualified Certificated Staff

Highline Public Schools' Cadre Early Hiring Program is designed to extend early contracts to certificated staff in key hard-to-fill areas while also allowing our recruitment team to recommend site-specific matches. Cadre hires are those that we believe could be successfully placed across our district in various schools, programs, and communities. Those not extended Cadre contracts may still be competitive candidates for a specific site or program vacancy.

The Cadre application for the 2024-2025 school year will open October 15!
