Richland One District hosts teacher job fair in April to fill vacancies for next school year

Richland County, South Carolina – The shortage of teachers in South Carolina has been a major issue in recent years. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic, this issue has grown even more alarming. While many schools throughout the state are facing difficulties filling unfilled positions, Richland One School District is taking the issue head-on.

While the current academic year, 2023–2024, is still in progress, plans are already in place for the subsequent one. With an eye toward the future, Richland One encourages individuals who wish to make a change in the education sector to consider joining their team. The district is hosting a teacher job fair in the spring in order to make this possible. This is a fantastic opportunity for individuals who aspire to teach at Richland One.

The job fair is scheduled for April 13 at 4800 Monticello Rd., Columbia, which is next to Eau Claire High School, from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. This is an opportunity for prospective teachers to learn about various careers, network with current district employees, and experience what it’s like to work in the Richland One community.

It is advised that people who wish to attend register for the job fair by April 11. By registering online, attendees can guarantee their position at this job fair event.

Richland One takes pride in not only selecting the top candidates but also rewarding them if they are hired. Newly hired certified teachers will get a $2,000 signing bonus as a demonstration of the school’s dedication to offering outstanding education. To make things even easier for new teachers, the district also pays back teachers’ moving expenses and certification application fees.
