The Quakertown Community School District will be hosting a Job Fair for the three Upper Bucks school districts from 9 a.m. to noon on January 20 in the District Services Center, 100 Commerce Drive, Quakertown.

Along with Palisades and Pennridge, Quakertown has openings for several positions, including substitute nurses, substitute teachers, instructional aides and substitute aides. In addition, representatives from Chartwells, Levy School Bus Company and SSC Services for Education will be in attendance to recruit food service workers, bus drivers and custodians, respectively.

“This is a wonderful opportunity for adults, including parents of students, to work part-time and have a flexible schedule,” said Barbara Philips, QCSD’s Human Resources Manager. “It has been difficult for us to find substitutes in several areas, and we’re hoping this recruiting effort is able to match our needs with the needs of parents and adults in our community.”

The event is being organized by PA CareerLink of Bucks County.

To help recruit substitutes, QCSD has increased their pay. Substitute nurses are paid $20 an hour. Substitute aides are paid $10 an hour, with a bump to $12 an hour for special education aides.

QCSD contracts with Education Solutions Services (ESS) for substitute teachers, who are paid $105 per full day. Long term substitute teachers receive $140 per full day for assignments of more than 20 days.
