NISD will hire up to 600 new teachers between now and summer

May 12, 2016

As the current school year starts to wind down, it is time to start staffing schools for next year. Northside ISD expects to hire between 500 and 600 teachers to replace retiring teachers and meet growth demands.

NISD, the area's largest public school system, will open two more elementary schools and grow by around 2,000 students next year.

Fully certified elementary applicants are invited to an Elementary Teacher Title 1 Job Fair from 8:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. on Saturday, May 14 at Stevens High School, 600 N. Ellison Drive. Thirty-nine Title 1 elementary schools will be collecting and reviewing resumes on site that day.  

Title 1 is the nation’s oldest and largest federally funded program, providing extra funds to school systems across the country for students at risk of failure and living at or near poverty.

Prior to visiting the Job Fair, all candidates must complete an online application for the appropriate job positions which can be found on the HR Jobs website. Check all appropriate certifications (general, bilingual, ESL, special education, etc.). 

Note – A new job application system went into effect Feb. 15. Applicants must have a new application on file to be considered for positions.

Qualified candidates must successfully complete a pre-employment criminal background check and fingerprinting requirements.
