    Join a district in a unique period of change where your skills will have maximum impact. Our team of passionate educators has taken on the challenge of changing the path of public education in Jefferson Parish and making a difference in the futures of our students.

    • Diverse, talented, and committed to excellence. We’re looking for talented, dynamic teachers who insist on excellence and are passionate about learning new ways to get every child to succeed. At Jefferson Parish Schools, you’ll get the feedback you need to do your best work, colleagues who share your high standards, and the opportunity to work in one of the most diverse districts in Louisiana.

    • Rewarding opportunities to increase student achievement. To ensure our students with the greatest need have access to high-performing, certified teachers and quality instruction, the district will continue to offer a $2,000 stipend to teachers who select a target school for the first year of teaching at that school. A target school is a school that has over 90% of economically disadvantaged students and/or the English Language Learners exceed 30% of the student population. View the target schools for the 2023-2024 school year. The District will also pay a $1,000 stipend to certified teachers district-wide who teach in a target content area. The target content areas are: English as a Second Language (ESL), High School Math, High School Physics, and Special Education (all grade levels).
    • A chance to make history. Our district has an ambitious goal: to make college and career success a reality for every one of our 50,000 students. As the largest school district in Louisiana, we have the potential to become a proof point for the success of a large, traditional school district that serves a high needs population — but we need the best teachers in our classrooms to make this happen. Will you join us?
