Employment Examinations and Sign-Up Information
►Our district covers all public comprehensive high schools in the Antelope Valley plus the A.V. Adult School and Desert Winds Continuation Schools. For a general listing of our schools, click the "Schools" link at the top of your page. The district maintains a non-teaching, support staff of employees in the general fields of Clerical, Instructional Aide, Maintenance, Custodial, Computer Technician, Security, and Food Services.
►Paraeducator, Clerical, Security, Custodian, Cafeteria and Instructional Aide positions are hired and filled from employment eligibility lists. With budgetary concerns in-mind, registration MAY or MAY NOT be offered three times per year on a rotating basis for some, all or none the lists. Registration forms may be available during the posting periods at our district office. You cannot register outside of a posted vacancy announcement. You may view the Classified Vacancy Announcements online for registration opening dates and deadlines. Be sure to read the desired qualifications and information carefully. All non-teaching positions require a minimum of a high school diploma/ged.
►If you do not sign-up AND test, you cannot be considered. You will need valid photo id with you as no one may register nor test for you. It will be helpful for you to fill-out the forms if you have all your pertinent employment history such as dates of former employment, supervisors names, job titles, dates covering all periods of unemployment, schooling, etc. During your registration, you are welcome to submit a resume in addition to the basic test registration form - please keep in mind that the form must be filled-out completely on both sides; resumes cannot take the place of filling out the form. Incomplete registrations or application packets will not be considered. If you do not register, you will not be considered nor have any scores carried forward. You will be given a receipt listing a date and time for you to take the required exam. You must take the exam or roll a score forward to be considered further. Other positions may be offered as needed.
►When posted, most job announcements will be available for sign-up for a period of about 7 days. It is the candidate's responsibility to meet deadlines. We cannot accept late registrations. CHECK THE DEADLINES CAREFULLY SO YOU DO NOT MISS OUT! Likewise, late arrival for any testing session is NEVER allowed to avoid disturbances to candidates in session.
►You must check the "Classified Vacancy Announcements" link frequently for updates of exact registration opening dates and deadlines of all job postings!
