Hiring Status

CMS has two categories of hiring statuses, local hire (LH) and foreign hire (FH). An applicant is considered a LH if the he/she lives, resides, and/or is interviewed and recruited in the Dominican Republic. An applicant is considered a FH if he/she lives, resides, and/or is interviewed and recruited outside of the Dominican Republic and relocated to the Dominican Republic for the primary purpose of working at CMS.

Educator spouses of FH teachers that do not initially work for CMS at the time of hiring but who are later hired by CMS would be considered FH as their family was originally relocated to the Dominican Republic for the primary purpose of working at CMS.
