To become a DASD staff member, you must first complete an online application utilizing Frontline Applicant Tracking. This application will be screened by the hiring supervisor in order to determine if you will be invited to an interview. 

  • Step 1: Create an account and complete the online application. In addition to the above requirements, you will also have the opportunity to upload additional documents. 
    • A complete application requires:
      • An updated resume, reflective of your education and employment experience, including community involvement and leadership roles
      • References (a minimum of two professional references)
      • Required Clearances (3) dated within past 60 months for employment purposes (see FAQ for more information).
    • Interested applicants that do not have access to a computer can apply online using the Human Resources Kiosk at the District's Central Administration Building (540 Trestle Place, Downingtown, PA 19335).
  • Step 2: An administrator will contact you if you are selected to move forward in the hiring process.
