Teachers looking for a job in one of the LOU community’s schools will get a “twofer” when the Oxford and Lafayette County school districts hold job fairs on the same day in February.
The Oxford School District Teacher Job Fair will be held from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Feb. 9 in the Oxford High School gymnasium. The Lafayette County School District Teacher Job Fair will be held from 9 a.m. to noon on the same day in the Lafayette High commons.
The job fair is for all teachers and administrator candidates. Principals and administrators from each district will be at their respective schools to answer questions and discuss possible job opportunities.
Anyone interested in attending the OSD Job Fair is encouraged to complete a “Job Fair Quick Form” prior to the event. Visit www.oxfordsd.org/employment to complete that form and /or apply for employment. On the day of the job fair, educators should bring a current resume and professional portfolio.
Those who plan to attend the event should have one of the following:
*a Mississippi preliminary certificate

The LCSD Job Fair is open to all aspiring educators looking for a position in a variety of fields.
“Principals and Directors will be at the College Fair to accept resumes, portfolios, and certificates from any potential candidate for employment and to provide any additional information about the LCSD,” said LCSD Assistant Superintendent Patrick Robinson.
