Applicants must complete an application online at: www.hammond.k12.in.us. Submit letter of application stating experience, training, references and other information pertaining to this position to:
Michael Zimmerman, Principal/CTE Director
Credentials have three areas of focus. These are (1) degree attainment/credits in the area of instruction, (2) teaching experience, and (3) work experience in the area of instruction. Vincennes University has three methods for meeting its requirements for faculty credentials. These include traditional, non-traditional, and emergency/exception to criteria methods.
Non Traditional Credentials:
In lieu of the traditional credentials a candidate can submit a body of evidence that would replace the traditional credentials. The body of evidence should carry sufficient strength of information to affirm that the individual is equivalently qualified to teach the course as those with traditional credentials. The body of evidence may include a collection of such things as credentials, occupational experience, teaching experience at a level consistent with the proposed assignment, student ratings, superior evaluations, and outstanding references in addition to other possible materials. A mixture of traditional and non-traditional evidence is not uncommon. The less traditional evidence that is presented the stronger the non-traditional evidence must be.
Criteria considered in the non-traditional process include:
The following provides several examples of credentials approved under the non-traditional process: An instructor with 12 graduate credits was approved utilizing a year of teaching an AP course in the discipline in lieu of the additional graduate hours. An instructor with 9 graduate hours and 12 undergraduate hours at the 300/400 level was approved to teach a 100 level course. A foreign language instructor with no graduate hours in the language was approved after presenting a body of evidence that included an undergraduate degree in the language, a master’s degree in another foreign language, five years of living in a country that speaks the language, and documentation of attending five workshops on the language while in the foreign country.
Emergency/Exception to Criteria Credentials:
On occasion, Vincennes University will employ an individual who does not meet the traditional or non-traditional requirement. Such employment is for a limited time and requires a plan for enhancing the qualifications of the individual. The time frame of the plan is strictly adhered to and failure to meet the agreed upon check point requirements will result in the suspension of the emergency/exception to criteria approval. Such approvals are often restricted to individuals who have credentials that are close to those specified and that are achievable within two years.
All credentials are reviewed and approved by the appropriate Vincennes University department chair, the appropriate division dean, and the University provost.
