MILWAUKEE - Milwaukee Public Schools will be holding a recruitment event on Saturday to fill the 700 open positions they are hiring for for the 2013-2014 school year.
The event will be held at MPS’ Harold S. Vincent High School, 7501 N. Granville Road, Milwaukee 53224, will begin at 9 a.m. and run through 1 p.m.
To be recommended for an early contract or to be issued for a letter of intent, candidates must complete an online job application prior to or on Saturday, March 2. Applications can be made online by clicking here (click on the ‘career opportunities’ link on the right-hand side, then click on apply online for teaching or other certified positions).
A limited number of computers will be available at Saturday’s event for applicants who have not yet completed an application. Candidates needing to apply online at the event must bring their resume on a flash drive.
The large number of available positions is driven by a three-year wave of retirements in the district among the large number of retirement-eligible staff in MPS.
“With the strong academic reforms we’ve put in place and our commitment to excellence, we are dedicated to being the employer of choice for the best and brightest educators and support staff for our students,” MPS Superintendent Gregory Thornton said.
