Program Information

Frequently Asked Questions

    1. How can I become a substitute for summer programs?

      At this time the summer program does not utilize daily substitutes.

    2. Who do I contact for additional information about a specific program?

      Please visit www.hcps.org and click on Summer Program Employment, which can be found under the Human Resources banner. Within this link you will find program descriptions and contact information for each program.

    3. How do I apply for a position?

      Please visit www.hcps.org and click on Online Employment Application, which can be found under the Human Resources banner. In the search box, type “Summer Program.” Click on the position(s) in which you are interested and apply as instructed.

    4. How do I apply for a specific program?

      Within the application for each position you will have the opportunity to indicate in which program(s) you are interested.

    5. I am a full-time employee with HCPS. Do I have to submit an application?

      Yes. Please utilize the summer program application for internal employees.

    6. I am a HCPS employee. Do I submit the same application as external candidates?

      No. Please utilize the internal application. External applicants will utilize the external application.

    7. Will I be considered for a program or position in which I did not indicate I am interested?

      No. Summer program coordinators only review applications that are submitted for their designated program. Apply to each position/program for which you would like to be considered.

    8. My application status still says “New Applicant.” Does that mean that it has not yet been reviewed?

      While your application status is “New Applicant,” it HAS been reviewed. Since we have multiple program coordinators reviewing applications for their programs, we do not change applications statuses for these positions until all hiring has been completed. Since our staffing needs change due to enrollment, we continue working to fill a number of positions throughout the summer.

    9. Will I be notified if I am not being hired? When?

      Offers of employment are ongoing as enrollment and changes occur. Hiring can take place throughout the summer. If you wish to inquire about a potential position, please contact the Program Coordinator.

    10. Will I be considered for a position if I cannot work all of the program dates?

      No. Employment is contingent upon your ability to work all program dates.
