Ed­u­ca­tion Briefs NCSS Teacher Job Fair

Event set for March 1 at East­side High

The Covington News - - School Beat -

The New­ton County School Sys­tem will hold its an­nual Teacher Job Fair from 9 a.m. 2 p.m. March 1 at East­side High School.

Prin­ci­pals and rep­re­sen­ta­tives from each school in the sys­tem will be on hand to in­ter­view prospec­tive em­ploy­ees and an­swer any ques­tions ap­pli­cants might have.

Don­ald Dun­ni­gan, as­so­ci­ate su­per­in­ten­dent for hu­man re­sources, said the sys­tem needs to fill va­can­cies cre­ated due to re­tire­ments and res­ig­na­tions as well as newly cre­ate po­si­tions and for the open­ing of the new el­e­men­tary school in Au­gust.

“Our school sys­tem has a lot to of­fer both new and ex­pe­ri­enced teach­ers,” Dun­ni­gan said. “This will be an ex­cel­lent op­por­tu­nity for teach­ers to meet and in­ter­view with school prin­ci­pals, learn more in­for­ma­tion about the school sys­tem and ob­tain in­for­ma­tion on cur­rent job open­ings and re­quire­ments.”

Dun­ni­gan added while re­cruit­ing oc­curs through­out the school year, the job fair pro­vides the best op­por­tu­nity for prospec­tive em­ploy­ees to see what New­ton County has to of­fer.

No reg­is­tra­tion is re­quired for ad­mis­sion, but each teacher is strongly en­cour­aged to bring mul­ti­ple copies of his or her re­sume.
