Do you miss volunteering in our schools?

We need your help! Every school year we hire support staff in a variety of departments within our schools — Classroom Aides, Paraprofessionals for Special Education Classes, Food Services, and Custodians. This year is no different.

If you would like to help out in our schools and get paid to do it, this may be the perfect way for you to fill the void and become involved.

With the uncertainty of the different phases of the school model over the course of the year – these positions offer the flexibility to make your own schedule. The district has established the opportunity for job sharing, so you can work in any position on the days you desire, and perhaps share a specific day with someone else (ie. you work in the morning and a partner works in the afternoon).

Please reach out to our MTSD HR Director, Katherine Ward, and she will discuss next steps with you! Email – HR@MTWP.net / Phone – 717.569.8231
