Rockwood School District hosted the fourth annual Diversity Job Fair on Wednesday, Feb. 26, at Rockwood South Middle School.
"A diverse workforce is a priority at Rockwood School District," said Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources Dr. Katie Reboulet. "Diversity is a great thing in everybody's life. Our goal is to have a staff that reflects our student population."
Rockwood is considering candidates for all positions but has openings for:
· before and after school care
· bus drivers and monitors
· child nutrition workers
· grounds and maintenance workers
· instructional support
"We work to find opportunities to reach applicant pools," said Reboulet, "not just student teacher pools or recent graduates. We're looking for a wide variety of positions. It's not just teaching. We need custodial, food service, bus drivers and all aspects of a school district."
Reboulet said Rockwood invests in the annual event.
"We advertise in the St. Louis American, and in years past we have had between 80-100 candidates," said Reboulet. "Administrators are here to conduct the interviews."
Superintendent Dr. Mark Miles was among the administrators in attendance.
"I commend our human resources personnel for coordinating this annual event," said Miles. "Diversity is a priority in Rockwood and helps prepare our students for their futures."
