Teacher Recruitment Fair

The Bakersfield City School District will hold its annual teacher job fair on Saturday, March 4, 2023. Attendees must apply by February 15th to secure an interview.

This year’s theme is “May the light shine on your future with BCSD.” The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Harris Elementary, located at 4110 Garnsey Lane.  Applicants will meet with district staff and will be asked a series of questions as part of the interview process.

Our district is always in need of single-subject teachers, particularly in the math and sciences. We’re also recruiting special education and Transitional Kindergarten teachers. We’re always looking for the best for our students and we encourage those with a passion for teaching to apply.

  • California teaching credential
