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. We want ALL of our students to succeed and master all state standards. To ensure our students with the greatest need have access to high performing, certified teachers and quality instruction, Jefferson Parish is offering a $2,000 stipend to teachers who select a target school as their career choice. 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. Jefferson Parish is also offering a $1,000 stipend to certified teachers who teach in a target content area. The target content areas are: English as a Second Language (ESL), High School Chemistry, 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.
