 HELPFUL APPLICATION HINTS:

  • Carefully read the job description for employment procedures, qualifications, deadlines, required documents, and certifications.  After reading the job description, make a checklist of requirements and application procedures so none are forgotten in the application process.  Scan and upload all of the documentation appropriate for the position.
  • Jobs in the District may be certificated or classified positions.  Certificated positions require college degrees and specialized credentials.  Examples of certificated positions include teachers, psychologists, nurses and speech pathologists.  Non-certificated positions are classified positions and may also require specific qualifications.  For example, instructional aides must meet the requirements for college units (minimum 48 semester units) or pass the CODESP test; a library media clerk must type a specified number of words per minute, as verified by a valid typing certificate from an acceptable agency.  Be certain you meet all of the job qualifications before submitting an application for a position.
