Welcome to the Collingswood Public School District Personnel Department!
The Collingswood Public Schools Personnel Department is dedicated to securing highly qualified and dedicated administrators, teachers and support staff for the children of our district. We actively recruit applicants whose first concern is helping all students reach their full potential. We value diversity and strive to recruit a workforce reflective of the society in which our students live. We are also committed to keeping our employees by providing a competitive salary and benefits package.
The Collingswood Public Schools are accepting applications for employment online for all Professional and Support Staff positions. The Personnel Office requests that those who seek employment file their application online rather than sending paper via the US mail. Please do not mail or email applications. Paper applications will be considered only if there are no viable online applicants for a specific position. Once you have applied online, there is no need to follow up with a paper application.
The Collingswood Public Schools do not discriminate in its educational programs, activities or employment practices based on race, color, national origin, sex, disability, age, religion, ancestry or any other legally protected classification. This policy is in accordance with state and federal laws, including Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX of the Education Amendments of 1972, Sections 503 and 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973, the Age Discrimination Act of 1975 and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990.
Applicants for all Professional and most Support Staff positions should view our employment opportunities and complete the Online Application. Paper applications will be only be considered if there are no viable online applicants for a specific position. Please do not follow up your online application with a paper application.
Certificated Positions (please apply online) - Teachers, Administrators, and other Related Services positions requiring certification from the New Jersey Department of Education.
Non-Certificated Positions - Positions that do not require certification from the New Jersey Department of Education, such as Buildings Services Personnel, Instructional Assistants, and Office Services Personnel.
Any holder of a regular teaching certificate issued by the New Jersey Department of Education can qualify as a substitute teacher.
Those not holding a teaching certificate must procure a County Substitute’s Certificate valid for day-to-day teaching, not to exceed twenty (20) days in one position.
The County Substitute’s Certificate will be issued for a five (5) year period. It must be renewed when it expires by submitting it to the local district for transmittal to the County Office.
A County Substitute’s Certificate issued by the office of the Camden County Superintendent of Schools is valid in all Camden County schools.
All substitutes, other than those having teaching certification, must be persons who hold a degree from an accredited four year college or have 60 semester hours of college credit.
Applicants for substitute teaching who hold regular certificates issued by the New Jersey Department of Education need not apply for a County Substitute Certificate. However, applicants must complete the Criminal History Review Process and receive official clearance before Board of Education approval can be granted.
A substitute certificate is transferable from county to county. If an applicant applies to more than one county for substitute employment, only one certificate will be required. That certificate must be presented to each county in which it is to be used and must be validated by the receiving county.
