    Point of caution about School Spring, its a great resource for the education side of the school business but I recently discovered from School Spring that they do not cross post all jobs to other sites and therefore we have seen low response and not from the candidate pool that you would like to target. I have had far better response from Indeed.com for non educational job postings. Good luck.

    Steve, thank you for sharing your experience with SchoolSpring. We are not solely using SchoolSpring for our search. Copying and pasting the posting from our internal jobs board was just the easiest way for me to get it up on the MFAA board. I am running and add in two local/regional newspapers as well Masslive.com which is very popular here in Western Ma. I will definitely look into indeed.com
