MDE Announces Virtual Job Fairs For Michigan Schools and Educators

September 22, 2020

LANSING – The Michigan Department of Education (MDE) will be hosting three virtual job fairs, open to employers of educators and educational support staff, as well as all individuals seeking to work in the education field.

“A top priority at MDE is helping schools meet the diverse needs of Michigan’s students,” said State Superintendent Dr. Michael F. Rice. “One of the ways we can do that is to connect schools and districts with qualified candidates. Now, more than ever, it is essential that we help ensure that every student is supported in their learning journey.”

Increasing the numbers of certified teachers, especially in areas of shortage, is one of the eight goals of the state’s updated Top 10 Strategic Education Plan.

The three MDE virtual job fairs will be held on the following dates:

  • October 7, 2020
  • March 3, 2021
  • June 16, 2021

“Last school year, we were pleased to help more than 150 employers meet their staffing needs through our job fairs,” said Leah Breen, director of MDE’s Office of Educator Excellence. “We are dedicated to helping ensure that every school is staffed with qualified educational personnel.”
