If you have previously completed an online application, you may simply log in to the system using your existing username and password and apply for the Teaching/Professional job entitled “Job Fair Registration 2020 – February 15, 2020”

Please check your e-mail address for accuracy on your online application, as all details of the fair, including interview times, will be communicated to candidates via e-mail. Additionally, in order to receive our e-mails to you regarding the fair, please ensure that jobfair@rcps.info is not blocked by your spam or e-mail filters!

Please note that you must complete the “Teaching/Professional” online application for employment, and complete all fields, including teacher licensure / certification data. The licensure information included in your application will determine your eligibility to attend the fair, so be sure to be as accurate as possible regarding your license type and endorsements. If you do not currently hold a license, but will be completing an approved program in Spring/Summer 2020 from which you will receive a teaching license, please indicate your "Certificate Type" as "Application Pending" or indicate the type of license you expect to receive upon graduation ("Collegiate Professional", "Postgraduate Professional", etc.). 

We strongly recommend electronically attaching a copy of your teaching credential and/or transcripts to your application, as those items are critical in determining your licensure eligibility, and therefore your eligibility for an interview.  If your licensure status is not clear, you may not be selected for an interview.  Unofficial transcripts are absolutely acceptable to include with your application, and official transcripts are not required.  We recommend uploading any completed test scores you may have as well (Praxis, VRA, VCLA, etc).

If you are unable to electronically attach transcripts (or other attachments) to your application yourself, you may submit hard copies to our office via the address below. Once received, we will scan/upload them to your application.
