USA K-12 Opportunities

In an effort to facilitate the movement from one state to another, the UK College of Education will attempt to link to K-12 job opportunities for the 50 states. We have discovered that some states do not centralize job announcements. In those instances, we have referred to the list of school districts within the state. These links are provided as a service to help narrow your search. Please do not contact the UK College of Education with questions about the job opportunities in the 50 states.

Please look at the teacher certification requirements for the particular state.  Please remember each state has unique requirements for teacher certification.  Good luck in your search! 

Teachers who want to move can learn about certification reciprocity through the National Association of State Directors Teacher Education and Certification.
