One of the biggest events they put together is the Annual Bakersfield City School District Teacher Job Fair. This year, the event will take place Saturday, February 29th at Harris Elementary – 4110 Garnsey Lane. Attendees have the opportunity to submit the necessary paperwork and materials, and receive an on-site interview which could lead to a teaching contract with BCSD.
Current openings include: TK-8th multiple subject teachers, Special Education teachers and single subject teachers in Math, Science, English, and History. Anyone working towards obtaining a credential this Spring/Summer, is intern ready, or is a recent graduate is encouraged to register online. Onsite interviews will be held with conditional offers made to qualified candidates. Teachers with experience will be placed on a salary schedule according to paid teaching experience (subject to certain requirements).
Hundreds of prospective teachers attended last year’s job fair and 75 conditional contracts were offered. The goal for this year’s job fair is to continue that success with even more attendees and contract offers.
