CCSD Job Fair Set for Saturday, March 4 at River Ridge HS

Cherokee County School District’s Division of Personnel Management will be hosting a job fair on Saturday, March 4, from 9 a.m. to 12 noon at River Ridge High School in Woodstock.  The fair is designed to attract teacher applicants, as well as potential Transportation Department candidates to drive school buses and School Nutrition workers to prepare/serve breakfast and lunch for students.  Applicants can meet principals and assistant principals at the event, which attracted more than 500 job seekers last year.

New Teachers

Eligible teacher candidates include those graduating from educator preparation programs , as well as experienced educators who currently hold professional certification in Georgia or another state.  Anticipated areas of high need include special education, math and science at elementary, middle and high school levels.  School psychologists and speech language pathologists are also positions with anticipated vacancies.  A short video about teaching in the Cherokee County School District (produced by students at Etowah High School) can be viewed at this link:

Transportation and School Nutrition

CCSD is also interviewing for anticipated vacancies in transportation and school nutrition.  School bus driver candidates do not need to hold a commercial driver’s license (CDL) in order to apply; this certification can be obtained after hiring.  Restaurant or food service experience is a plus for school nutrition worker candidates, but not required.  All positions in transportation and school nutrition include extensive training.

Those interested in employment with the school district are encouraged to complete an online application prior to the event, accessible at the following link:  Current job openings can be viewed at this link:
