background record checks

Prior to hiring, each candidate must pass rigorous personal reference checks, a comprehensive health examination, and a state-mandated background records check, including a criminal background check, a SORI, and a Department of Children and Families check. Each applicant is interviewed extensively and must complete a supervised working interview in the classroom.


The interview process typically involves a phone interview, an in-person interview, and a working interview. Candidates for administrative roles will interview with several members of First Circle administration.

job offer

After completing all interviews and checking references, we prepare a job offer for desirable candidates. To ensure fair wage implementation for all employees, we use a compensation scale that incorporates a candidate’s experience and education. Once the job offer letter is sent, the candidate must confirm the offer.
