BCSD will hold its biggest teacher recruitment fair yet on April 9, 2016 from 1:00p.m.-5:00p.m. at Downtown Elementary School, 2021 M Street.

BCSD is the largest independent TK-8th grade school district in the state of California and growing. Just two hours away from many major beaches and amusement parks, the District is located in a city that is known for its community collaboration. One of the main focuses of the community is the education and future of our local children, and BCSD is the perfect place to make that difference.

Access to technology is extremely important to BCSD, which is why our classrooms offer the latest technology. From Google Chromebooks, to wireless internet access, BCSD provides exemplary resources in the classroom.

First time teachers to BCSD are offered professional development opportunities, full induction programs to clear preliminary credentials for both general and special education, and coaches who can provide support and guidance. New for the 2016-2017 school year, transferring teachers will receive up to 25 years of year-for-year salary credit for verifiable experience. In addition, all teachers receive a fully paid health benefits package valued at more than $19,000 a year.

The Fair will consist of information about the District along with breakaway sessions with onsite interviews. Special education staff, school principals, and department heads will be available to answer questions. Interns, recent graduates, and those currently working on obtaining their credential, are encouraged to attend.

BCSD employed 1,410 teachers during the 2015-2016 school year. Teacher salaries are based on higher education achievement, years of service, and professional development experience.
