Employment Opportunities

As of February 1, 2014 the Garrard County Schools has implemented a new electronic application system that will be used to process applications for all vacancies in the district. As of this date, our district will no longer accept paper applications for any position. All applications must be submitted through the TalentEd Recruit & Hire service. The image at the bottom of this page will transition you directly to the application process and a listing of all available employment opportunities.  

Each new hire is responsible for the following expenses once an offer of employment has been accepted: 

  • National and State Background Check $51.25

  • Kentucky Abuse and Neglect Registry Check $10.00

  • Pre-employment Drug Screening $40.00

Information to change a Background check can be found at this link

First Time Users: Select the position for which you are applying. Follow the prompts to create your own account and complete the application. If you don’t have time to complete the application in one session, you can save your work and return to it later. Be sure you click SUBMIT at the end of the application before the posting deadline. Otherwise, your application will not be forwarded to us for consideration. You will receive a confirmation number, and your information will be saved allowing you to return at any time to submit additional applications. You will also receive a confirmation email that will confirm the submittal of your application. Please be sure and remember your username and password for use on future applications.

Certified Positions: Only applicants who hold the appropriate certification for a position will be considered for vacancies that are posted. Please read the job descriptions carefully to ensure that your certification meets the requirement for the position. 

Instructional Assistants: The minimum requirements for these positions are either (a) 48 college credit hours acquired through two years of study at an institution of higher education, (b) an associate’s degree or higher, or (c) successful achievement on the Kentucky Paraeducator Assessment. Applicants failing to meet these requirements will not be considered for employment.  (for information on this assessment contact the Garrard County School's Central Office) 

Internal Applicants: If you are currently an employee of the Garrard County Schools and a job is posted for which you wish to apply, please select ‘apply’ for the job. You will be transitioned to the page with the job description. At the top right of the page, please click on the INTERNAL link. You will be directed to a much shorter application process. We have all your records on file in the district office, so we only need to know of your interest in the position. 

References: Please list only professional references, not personal references. Each person listed as a reference must have an email address.

If you have any questions regarding the application process, please contact Patricia.Stone@garrard.kyschools.us  . You are also welcome to visit our Board of Education, located at 322 W. Maple Ave in Lancaster for a list of job opportunities. Office hours are 8:00 AM to 4:30 PM, Monday through Friday. 

The Garrard County Schools adhere to and endorse the principles of fair and equal employment opportunity for all employees regardless of their race, color, national origin, age, religion, marital status, sex, or disability.
