Kent School District requires all applicants to complete our online application. Careful attention to the application and to providing all of the information requested is the most important step in applying for any position.
A federal and/or state Criminal History Background Check will be required of candidates upon offer of employment. Any offer of employment is conditional and subject to the receipt of an acceptable outcome on the Criminal History Background Check.
Paraeducator Requirements & Testing
All paraeducator applicants are required to either:
- Show proof of 72 college-level credits, an AA degree (or higher)
- Show proof they passed the Para Professional Assessment
If you are in need of testing, you may still apply for open paraeducator positions. You will need to pass the Para Professional Assessment before being hired if you are a finalist.
Clerical Testing for Finalists Only
In an effort to ensure safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, all clerical testing has been suspended for Kent Association of Educational Office Professionals (KAEOP) applicants.
Level testing will now only be done after initial interviews for finalists only. This means all applicants will be screened for interviews without passing the clerical testing for the position.
Once interviewed, if you are a finalist, you will be required to pass the clerical test for the position you are being considered for.
Become a Substitute
Are you interested in helping our students and earning money working the same hours as your child(ren) during the school day? We have immediate openings for substitute teachers, paraeducators, and clerical staff.
