The School Board of Miami-Dade County
Bylaws & Policies
Unless a specific policy has been amended and the date the policy was revised is noted at the bottom of that policy, the Bylaws and Policies of the Miami-Dade County Public Schools were adopted on May 11, 2011 and were in effect beginning July 1, 2011.


Applicants for employment or reemployment must submit an employment application, a copy of the social security card with correct name, and a minimum of three (3) acceptable references. Candidates shall meet the School Board's hiring guidelines and employment prerequisites prior to consideration for any vacancy.

False or misleading statements or answers or omissions made by a person in connection with seeking employment may bar a person from employment with the Board or, if discovered after employment, may result in disciplinary action, including termination upon the recommendation of the Superintendent and the approval of the Board. Each case shall be considered on its own merits.

Administrative procedures implementing this policy may be found in the Manual of Procedures for Managerial Exempt Personnel, incorporated by reference.
