Last Updated  Friday, May 24, 2019


The Office of Human Resources is committed to ensuring that the City of Baker School System (CoBSS) attracts, develops, and retains the highly skilled and motivated work-force required for effective teaching and learning in all of our schools. To this end, we seek to hire individuals with a strong commitment to public education and who drive student achievement.  The online application address, with user creating her/his own username and password, is: https://bakerschools.tedk12.com/hire


The CoBSS requires all applicants to submit (online application, scan & email, fax, OR hand-deliver) the following documents:

  1. CoBSS Employment Application,
  2. Resume,
  3. Cover Letter of Intent with the Specific Position(s) Being Sought,
  4. Copy of your up-to-date and valid Louisiana teaching certificate (in accordance with Bulletin 746 requirements for the position), if applicable, and
  5. 3 Letters of Professional Reference or 3 Teacher Reference Forms (teachers only) dated on or after July 1, 2018;   however, applicants can provide actual professional reference letters at a later date since the Employment Application requires three professional references to be listed.


NOTE:  You may 1) scan and email this information to dgrisby@bakerschools.org with a carbon copy to pdecuir@bakerschools.org2) fax to the attention of the CoBSS HR Department at (225) 774-5797, or 3) hand deliver to 14750 Plank Road (corner of Pettit Road and Plank Road), Baker, LA 70714.  The Main District Office number is (225) 774-5795 and HR can be reached at (225) 778-2379.  


Applications will be forwarded to principals or other hiring managers, and upon prompt by those individuals, applicants will be sent to fingerprinting ($49.25 if paid by money orders/cashier's checks or $52.24 cost if paid with credit or debit card) and to drug & alcohol screening (no cost) with the appropriate authorization documents issued by HR.  After clearance of both screenings, HR will alert that a hiring manager may make a recommendation for hire; however, it is only after the Superintendent has signed off that one is hired.  The applicant is then called in to complete New Hire paperwork.  Caveat: There are some convictions in which a school system cannot hire an applicant.
