A vacancy exists for a permanent full-time principal clerk and typist in the Special Education Department.

Applicants must be currently certified through the Massachusetts Department of Human Resources as a senior clerk and typist, or applicants must appear on a current Massachusetts Department of Human Resources eligibility list for permanent appointment to this title.

making. Applicants must be able to examine documents for correctness, to use a computer to prepare forms and other documents, to compile any number of different types of statistics, and to post and maintain general records.

Applicants must be able to maintain any of a number and/or type of files, give information to the public, requisition office supplies, do sorting and mailing, and perform duties in which typing is performed a large percentage of the time. Applicants must possess a general knowledge of the operations of a school office. Applicants should have knowledge of ASPEN, AESOP and MUNIS. Applicants must have excellent interpersonal skills in dealing with parents, students, and staff. The ability to properly prioritize tasks, to multitask, and to concentrate in a distracting environment is essential.
