Teacher Recruitment

Christian County Public Schools are committed to excellence. Through this commitment, we direct our efforts toward providing students with the best opportunities imaginable. These avenues of opportunity will enable our students to foster a flame for learning and become life-long learners. To achieve this lofty goal we must have the best teaching staff possible.

The mission of the Office of Minority Teacher Recruitment is to secure the talents and skills for every classroom and school in Christian County. The district seeks to recruit and retain individuals who have chosen education as their career. Traditional educational programs, scholarships, alternative certification routes, professional development and early identification initiatives are tools used to accomplish this mission.

The alternative routes to teacher certification program has three phases and includes a minimum of 250 hours of formal instruction while working in a classroom. Alternative certification can serve two minority populations - professionals who want to make career changes and individuals employed as teacher aides. The alternative route allows minorities to become certified to teach at the primary, intermediate, middle and high school levels. Christian County Public Schools has developed alternative certification programs for potential teachers, including minorities, in collaboration with state universities including Murray State University, Campbellsville University and Western Kentucky University.

We invite you to become a part of one of the most challenging and rewarding schools systems in our state. Join us in our commitment to excellence…become a teacher in the Christian County Public School System.
