The WNY School Application System
"Schools work together in the best interests of children."               

The WNYSchool Application System is a consortium of schools brought together to offer an on-line application process to prospective teachers and administrators. Applicants complete a thorough application which is stored in a shared database. Documents such as resumes, transcripts, and letters of recommendation can be attached to the application.

When the application is complete, the applicant receives confirmation via email. Districts post positions on the site and applicants can attach their documents to any posting or leave it in the general database. Individual districts can only see applications where the applicant has explicitly checked that district. Each of the districts in the consortium use query tools to access their data and find the best match for positions.

Currently the school districts involved are listed below (the list is continuously growing). To learn more about any of these school districts, click on the desired school name to access its website.

Helpful Hint of the Month

When applying to a job opening that requires the attachment of reference letters and those letters are part of the Confidential Placement Folder. An applicant can include a document in place of the letters that states, “Reference Letters have been attached as part of the Confidential Placement Folder”. This work around will satisfy the system and district requirement allowing the application to be submitted to the job posting. If you have access to reference letters, please make sure to attach them.
