I hereby certify that I have not knowingly withheld any information that might adversely affect my chances for employment and that the answers given by me are true and correct to the best of my knowledge. I further certify that I, the undersigned applicant, have personally completed this application. I understand that any omission or misstatement of material fact on this application or on any document used to secure employment shall be grounds for rejection of this application or for immediate discharge if I am employed, regardless of the time elapsed before discovery.
I understand that nothing contained in the application, or conveyed during any interview which may be granted or during my employment, if hired, is intended to create an employment contract between me and Santa Catalina School. In addition, I understand and agree that if I am employed, my employment is for no definite or determinable period and may be terminated at any time, with or without prior notice, at the option of either myself or Santa Catalina School and that no promises or representations contrary to the foregoing are binding on Santa Catalina School unless made in writing and signed by me and Santa Catalina School’s Head of School.
I hereby authorize Santa Catalina School to thoroughly investigate my references, work record, education and other matters related to my suitability for employment including contacting representatives of prior employers whether or not I have listed them as references on this application. I authorize such representatives of my prior employers to disclose to Santa Catalina School any and all letters, reports and other information related to my work records, without giving me prior notice of such disclosure. I authorize my prior employers to disclose information including, without limitation, my eligibility for rehire, the reasons for my separation from employment, opinions or reviews concerning my performance and conduct, including both positive and negative information, and information concerning complaints, if any, submitted regarding my behavior toward employees or students. In addition, I hereby release Santa Catalina School, my former employers and all other persons, corporations, partnerships and associations from any and all claims, demands or liabilities arising out of or in any way related to such investigation or disclosure.
I also understand that if offered employment I will be required to submit fingerprints for a LiveScan criminal background check. California Education Code Section 44237(e)(1) bars private schools from employing anyone convicted of (1) a violent or serious felony or (2) convicted of a crime that would preclude employment in a public school. I hereby represent that I have not been convicted of a crime that would bar my employment by Santa Catalina School.
Should a search of public records (including records documenting an arrest, indictment, conviction, civil judicial action, tax lien or outstanding judgment) be conducted by internal personnel employed by Santa Catalina School, I am entitled to copies of any such public records obtained by Santa Catalina School unless I mark the check box below. If I am not hired as a result of such information, I am entitled to a copy of any such records even though I have checked the box below.
I waive receipt of a copy of any public record described in the paragraph above.
The electronic signature below and its related fields are treated by Santa Catalina School as a physical handwritten signature on a paper form. By signing below, I verify that all of the information provided on this form is true and correct to the best of my knowledge.
