General Information

Go to MPS Online Application System to view available jobs.

No. Our application is exclusively online via our website.

Human Resources has two computers available for applicant use.  You will need to establish an email account in order to complete the application.  Although Human Resources staff can get you set started with the online application, we cannot complete the application for you.

We are seeking multiple candidates for multiple positions within the district.  Individuals seeking a teaching position will have to apply to the pool positions for consideration.  We do not post a separate job posting for every vacancy due to the large number of vacancies that can occur in various positions such as bus drivers, child nutrition workers, child care providers, instructional aides, etc.  You may only see campus specific teaching positions for hard to fill certification areas.

Yes, the application system will expunge all pool applicants when the pool closes (generally in February or March).  A new pool will be made available for the following school year (generally in March) for candidates to apply for the following school year.

Positions are open until filled or closed.  Pool postings remain open for a longer duration of time.

You will receive an electronic confirmation that your application has been received through the application system.  Please do not call Human Resources regarding the status of your application.

All e-references listed by the applicant will receive an email upon completion of the application.  Please note: MPS supervisors will contact each applicant’s most current and former supervisors for reference information. It is important for applications to be complete, current, and accurate if individuals are going to be considered for employment.

It depends on the position you are applying for.  All professional positions will require an updated resume and cover letter.

Not all applicants will be considered for an interview.  Not all interviewed will be hired.

All candidates have to apply online for positions they are seeking.  Depending on the position, applicants may get called or sent a request via the application system for an interview with Human Resources.  Hiring Supervisors and Campus Principals review applications, conduct interviews, and call references to the applicant’s current and former supervisors.  Hiring managers then submit their final candidate to Human Resources for review and approval. Only staff from Human Resources can job offer a position to a prospective candidate for employment.

Consider applying as a substitute in our school district. This is the best way to receive competitive pay and get seen by campus administrative and instructional staff.  Individuals can obtain daily substitute jobs at all levels and gain first-hand experience working in our schools that can be additionally listed on a resume.  We respect and value our substitutes and MPS administrators take notice of dedicated substitutes.  We have had many individuals who served as instructional substitutes or instructional aides transition into teaching positions within the district after they acquired their degrees and teaching certification.
