Edmond Public Schools Chief Human Resources Officer Randy Decker says the district will have open positions in all areas.
“As the third largest and one of the fastest-growing districts in the state, we are continually looking for enthusiastic educators to prepare kids for success in college and the workforce.”
Individuals interested in a job in elementary education should plan to attend the Feb. 26 job fair. Individuals interested in a job in secondary education should plan to attend the Feb. 28 job fair. Participants should bring several copies of their resumes and be prepared to meet with principals for interviews. The district is also urging college graduates with non-teaching degrees to attend the job fair to learn more about the rewards of the teaching profession. District staff will be available to offer information about alternative routes to teacher certification.
