PLEASANT HILL, Calif. — Contra Costa County Office of Education (CCCOE) will host a job fair on Saturday, Nov. 6, in response to a shortage of substitute teachers and other school personnel throughout the county. To help ease the shortfall, Superintendent Mackey is encouraging qualified members of the community to apply to be substitute teachers in local schools.
“We are facing a shortage of educators in our community and across our state,” Superintendent Mackey said. “With this shortage of educators comes a shortage of substitute teachers and our schools need the community’s help. All you need is to have a bachelor’s degree, basic subject-matter proficiency, and a passion for working with students.”
A number of school districts and the CCCOE will have representatives at the fair on Saturday, Nov. 6. In addition to substitute teaching openings, county districts are looking for qualified applicants for full-time teachers, custodial staff, food services, certificated and classified positions.
Interested applicants can get more information online at cocoschools.org/becomeasub or by attending the job fair being hosted in the Ronald L. Stewart Learning Center at 77 Santa Barbara Road, Pleasant Hill, Calif., 94523 on Saturday, Nov. 6 from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The list of school districts attending the job fair, as well as other information, can be found on the CCCOE’s website.
