Patch Staff Report

There’s never been a better time to find a job in Georgia’s growing public charter school sector. New charter schools are seeking principals, teachers, administrative and support staff. 

Existing charter schools are also looking for staff, and several are expanding, adding a grade per year. To match qualified professionals with employment opportunities, the Georgia Charter Schools Association (GCSA) will host a charter school job fair on March 22 in Smyrna.

It will take place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at International Academy of Smyrna, located at 2144 South Cobb Drive.

More and more teachers are bypassing the traditional public school system and choosing to work in charter public schools. Teachers value the flexibility and curricular innovations they find in charter schools, along with their mission to boost student achievement. Charter school teachers also enjoy the ability to have a voice in day-to-day operations of their school.

For candidates unfamiliar with the charter sector, the job fair will include a free “Charter School 101” class covering the operation, philosophy and unique culture of public charter schools.

There is no fee for job seekers, but pre-registration is required. Candidates can register and submit their resumes in advance using the links above.

The term "Charter School" is intentionally confusing. Is it a county supported Charter school like Walton? Is it a city supported school system like Marietta? Is it a "For profit Charter School" approved and funded by the state after providing large campaign contributions? It sounds like the "For profit" variety. Why are they so bashful about saying who they are?
