Job Fair April 24

Post date: Apr 15, 2010 1:19:15 AM

The district will have its annual job fair on April 24, this time for both certified and classified positions. Some ask why we would have a Job Fair when we are cutting positions. Bear in mind that over the summer we will likely have some attrition we do not yet know about, and we want to have a good pool of applicants to fill those slots.

Teachers who are currently on temporary contracts are not guaranteed a job next year, so they are strongly encouraged to attend the fair and make the rounds to visit with administrators from each site. The district will be listing all available positions, including those currently occupied by a person on a temporary contract. So first-year teachers must re-apply for a position they currently occupy. And with involuntary transfers bumping teachers around the district, it is important that they attend the Job Fair to meet prospective supervisors from other sites.

The Job Fair will be at the senior high Fine Arts Center from 10 am to 2 pm on Saturday, April 24.
