Urgently Hiring Paraeducators and Substitutes
Urgently Hiring Paraeducators and Substitutes
08/23/2022
As our district prepares for the school year ahead, we need to urgently hire more paraeducators, emergency substitute teachers, substitute bus drivers, and substitute maintenance staff. Our district currently has more than 30 openings for paraeducators and subs. These positions are critical for our district’s ability to support our teachers and students. Substitutes provide a valuable service to our schools. Without subs, we would not be able to offer our students a seamless educational experience on the days when regular staff are absent. This is a highly valued and critical service to our teachers and students.
