Principals Conducting AP C-30s

Guidelines for Conducting the C-30 Process for Assistant Principal Positions Remotely Due to COVID-19

The selection and appointment of all Assistant Principal (AP) positions is conducted in accordance with Chancellor’s Regulation C-30. During the period of school building closure and remote learning due to COVID-19, the C-30 process is to be conducted remotely. Guidelines for conducting the C-30 AP selection process remotely are set forth below:

1. Collect Confidentiality Forms 

Prior to convening the Level I Committee, the principal should collect the confidentiality forms from all committee members electronically. This should be done before the C-30 materials (the C-30 Regulation, sample questions, resumes, etc.) are electronically sent to the committee members. Please note that the principal must maintain copies of these emails with their C-30 records.

Committee members may sign confidentiality forms using one of the following methods:

  • Electronically sign and date and then return. (preferred method)
  • Print, sign and take a picture of the confidentiality form and email the picture to the principal.
  • If none of the above steps are feasible, a committee member may send an email attaching the confidentiality form and containing the following statements in the body of the email:

  • Position Title:
  • School:
  • District:
  • I received the attached confidentiality form and understand and agree to its contents. My typed name below shall serve as my signature and attestation to the terms of the confidentiality agreement.
  • Name:

2. Conduct Level I Interview Remotely 

The Level I and Level II Interviews are being conducted remotely during the period of remote learning due to COVID-19. The committee may use a DOE-approved platform, such as:

  • Google Classroom/Meet,
  • Microsoft Teams,
  • Telephone, or
  • A combination of the above to ensure that all committee members are able to participate.
  • Note: The DOE Zoom platform allows non-DOE users to connect securely as guests. If members of your committee (particularly parents) are using non-DOE email addresses, make sure the “Only authenticated users can join” setting is un-checked. Please visit the Infohub page for more details on using the safe DOE Zoom platform.

At the Level I, please remember that the committee should discuss each candidate before ratings are submitted to the principal. All committee members should be instructed to immediately send their candidate ratings to the principal by email.

3. Conduct Level II Interview 

Following the Level I, the Level II should proceed remotely using a DOE-approved platform. 

4. SLT Consultation 

The final selected candidate is sent to the C-30 Coordinator in the Office of Supervisory Support Services for vetting and background clearance. Once principals have received approval from OSSS to proceed to the SLT consultation, they should note the following additional steps:

  1. Prior to the SLT Consultation, the principal should collect the confidentiality forms electronically from all SLT members who will be in attendance. This should be done prior to the SLT consultation. Please note that the principal must maintain copies of these emails with their C-30 records. SLT members may sign confidentiality forms using one of the following methods:

  • Electronically sign and date and then return. (preferred method)
  • Print, sign and take a picture of the confidentiality form and email the picture to the principal.
  • If none of the above steps are feasible, an SLT member may send an email attaching the confidentiality form and containing the following statements in the body of the email:
    • Position Title:
    • School:
    • District:
    • I received the attached confidentiality form and understand and agree to its contents. My typed name below shall serve as my signature and attestation to the terms of the confidentiality agreement.
    • Name:
  1. SLT Consultations are being conducted remotely during the period of remote learning due to COVID-19. The committee may use a DOE-approved platform. See Section 2 above for a list of DOE-approved platforms. Also, the SLT consultation must be done using a two-way communication platform, therefore it cannot be done by email.
    • Note: The DOE Zoom platform allows non-DOE users to connect securely as guests. If members of your committee (particularly parents) are using non-DOE email addresses, make sure the “Only authenticated users can join” setting is un-checked. Please visit the Infohub page for more details on using the safe DOE Zoom platform.
  2. Final notification to OSSS: The principal must provide written notice to OSSS of the final decision on appointment prior to the appointment being announced to the general school community:

    • I have consulted with the SLT of (DBN) on (SLT MEETING DATE) and wish to appoint (SELECTED CANDIDATE NAME) to the position of (TITLE) effective (DATE).
