Interested teachers should submit a registration form and fully complete the online licensed personnel employment application found on the Petal School District webpage. Once a registration form has been submitted, the applicant will receive a confirmation email reserving their time for a 10 minute interview with the school principals indicated on the form.  The Job Fair serves as an initial introduction of potential candidates to the school principals. Once teaching openings occur, selected candidates will be called back for full interviews. Please note that confirmations will be delayed for  registration forms submitted between November 21-25 and December 19-January 2 due to Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays.

It is recommended that candidates supply the following to the principals at the job fair:
  • a resume

  • a recent photo

  • Current Mississippi Educator License

Registration for the job fair is limited to 48 participants for each grade span. Once that limit is reached, no other applicants will be accepted for the job fair.  
Deadline for registration is January 13, 2017.
