Educators who apply to teach at JPPSS for 2015-2016 by April 30 will be eligible for the Jefferson Early Decision program.

At JPPSS, we know that excellent educators are essential to every child’s academic success. We are looking for talented, dynamic teachers to join our team as we work to prepare every Jefferson Parish student for college and career success. If you are resourceful and entrepreneurial – and passionate about transforming a traditional school system – we would like the opportunity to interview you.

JPPSS is continuing its implementation of an early hiring process for the 2015-16 school year to help bring great teachers to our schools. We are excited to share three opportunities with our teacher applicants:

  1. All teacher applicants who apply by May 8 will be screened for the Jefferson Early Decision program, which will consist of a group of highly effective teachers who will be offered teacher contracts for the 2015-16 school year.
  2. Teacher applicants can apply now for teaching positions during the 2015-16 school year, even if their ideal position is not yet posted online. On the application, candidates should select the position called “2015-16 Certified Teachers.” Applicants will then be matched to positions for which they meet the qualifications as positions are added. Applicants for this vacancy will also be screened for the Jefferson Early Decision program.
  3. Teacher applicants have the opportunity to share information about their skill level by uploading student data (VAM or SLT data) from previous years and responding to a written performance task. This information will help principals and human capital specialists identify and make offers to the strongest candidates.
