Teaching Hiring and Obtaining Employment

Hiring in San Diego County and in California is handled by each individual school district. Information on the individual school districts is available on the SDCOE web site. Increasingly, school districts are using on-line application procedures. The on-line employment site used by most California school districts is http://www.edjoin.org. Schools post job openings and teachers seeking positions post placement information. Prospective teachers fill out an on-line profile and scan and submit letters of recommendation and other required papers electronically.
