College seniors pursuing a degree in education or special education and who will be graduating in the fall of 2019 or spring of 2020 are encouraged to attend Edmond Public Schools Graduating Teachers’ Recruitment Reception. The event will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14 at the district’s Administrative Center, 1001 W. Danforth.  

Prospective educators will be given the opportunity to network with district administrators during round-table discussions and receive information about the district’s teacher orientation, peer mentoring and starting salary. 


 After being the first public school district in Oklahoma to pay first-year certified teachers a starting salary of $40,000 per year, Edmond Public Schools raised teacher pay again in 2019-2020. First-year certified teachers make a starting salary of $41,745. Health, life and disability insurance, and district-paid retirement contributions push a first-year teacher’s total compensation and benefits to $52,374. The district also offers peer mentoring, classroom management training and summer professional development opportunities to help teachers be successful. 

Food, beverages and door prizes will be provided at the free event.
