We also encourage you to sign up for the Job Alert feature to be notified when our Board posts jobs on the network. In order to be considered for an interview, please ensure that the documents listed below are sent to "Apply to Education" as part of your application package:
- Certificate (or Interim) of Qualification (if available)

- Reference Letters
Address your cover letter to Recruitment Officer, Human Resources Department.
A Police Records Check, including a Vulnerable Sector Search and Pardoned Sexual Offenders Database Search, valid within six months from the date of hire, is a condition of employment with the Board. Please note that there have been reports that it may take up to six weeks to process police records checks in some jurisdictions. With that in mind, we strongly suggest that candidates obtain a police screening as soon as possible.
Please note: If you are planning to return to Ontario after working overseas or out of province, we strongly recommend that you obtain:
a) A Police Records Check with Vulnerable Sector Search and/or a search of the Pardoned Sexual Offenders Database from the police department in your current location (covering the time frame you were there)
b) A record of teaching/work experience from our current employer that includes the percentage of time worked, the type of assignment (contract, LTO, etc.), the subject/grades taught/position held, and the start and end date of the assignment. This letter must be signed by an official of the organization and be printed on their official letterhead.
We recommend that you do this prior to returning to Canada or Ontario in order to avoid lengthy delays in your application process to KPRDSB.
