What's Next?

Sign up for an orientation and bring the following with you:

  • Two valid forms of ID – driver’s license, social security card, certified birth certificate, passport or other acceptable documents per the Federal I-9 Form (Expired documents will not be accepted.)
  • $27.00 fee for the background check (Cash or check)
  • Copy of your completed and submitted online application including references (Your application will be available for you to print after you apply for a job online.)
  • Direct deposit information (Either a voided check or savings routing and account information)
  • Copy of Certified Personal Care Attendant certificate of training
    • The Department of Human Services (DHS) requires all school employees who provide personal care services to students to be a Certified Personal Care Attendant (PCA). DHS provides free online training that you may choose to complete, followed by the test. After passing the test you will then receive a “Certificate of Training.” You will be required to submit a copy of your certificate in order to be eligible for employment as a District clerical/paraprofessional substitute. You may not provide personal care services for every student but having the certificate allows the district more flexibility when assigning you duties as a paraprofessional substitute.  At this time, it is only required that you take and pass it one time.
