    If you completed an application with Applicant Tracking within the last calendar year, your application will still be in our system, you will just need to login and update it. Please visit the Employment Opportunities webpage to login to your application

    I visited the Region XI website. Is it necessary to complete an application for each school district listed?
    Possibly. All school districts participating in the Region XI consortium use AppliTrack, however some districts like Carroll ISD have their own Applicant Tracking application. If you completed an Applicant Tracking application with another district or with Region XI, you are able to import most of your data using the import feature in Applicant Tracking.

    Additional Documents

    If I'm unable to upload information to the system, may I send copies by U.S. mail?
    No. All additional documents must be attached and sent electronically with the online application. School administrators have access to applicant information and are only able to download online applications, along with documents, electronically. On the attachment page of the application, click "Add file attachment" and scroll down. Click on the link "Having trouble attaching your document? Click here for help."
