Job Application Process Procedures

Please review these important changes to the Application Process.

  • As of January 13, 2012, the School District of DeSoto is using a new system to process employment applications.  Even if you have applied before, you must create a new user profile, and complete a new application with the District.  Applicant data from the old system is not being migrated to the new system.

  • If you are a current employee with the School District of DeSoto, and you wish to apply for a new position, please do not use the link at the bottom of this page.  Instead, current employees should click here to access the Employee Access system, log in with your account credentials, and look for the [Fast Track Open Positions] button.

Please read this information thoroughly, and then click the link at the bottom of this page to view job postings and access the online application.

  • Complete the application in full by answering all pertinent questions and attaching all required documents (e.g., diplomas, transcripts, certificates, references, etc.)

  • Your completed application will be kept on file for one year after receipt.

  • All job vacancies are posted on this website, available by clicking the link below.  Vacancies are also posted in the district office and at all schools/departments in the District.  Vacancy information may also be obtained by calling our Job Hotline at (863) 494-4222, ext. 1.

  • DeSoto County School District supports the American Disabilities Act of 1990, and we will take all reasonable steps to accommodate individuals using our services, programs, and activities.  Please notify Human Resources in advance if you require any accommodations or assistance.

  • The School District requires all employees to be fingerprinted and meet Level 2 Screening Requirements as described in §1022.32 F.S.  The fingerprint fee of $54.50 is charged to the employee and is payable by credit or debit card.

  • Pre-employment drug screening is required for all job applicants selected to fill vacancies or new positions.  Refusing to take the pre-employment drug screen, a positive result, altering the screen, or inconclusive test results will disqualify any candidate from employment and any offer will be withdrawn.

If you have any questions, please call the School District's Human Resources Office at (863) 494-4222, ext. 1102, or fax us at (863) 494-9675.
