The Candidate Profile is designed to provide a concise summary of everything the district learns during the principal screening process about a candidate’s strengths and opportunities, and relevant experience and results.

The profile is highly confidential. It is not intended for public use as it will include confidential personnel information, however the IS may work with HR to select appropriate portions of the summary to share with the SPSAC during selection discussions.
