This is an ambitious goal, and to get there we need the most knowledgeable, talented and dedicated teachers to apply!

We believe: Teachers are the key levers of transformation

Our teachers are our greatest resource in our work to increase student achievement.  With a new, highly selective application and screening process, becoming a teacher with Newark Public Schools will place you among an elite group of educators who are transforming lives and communities through their work in the classroom.

We offer: Support and Development

It is only by developing and supporting our teachers to do their jobs as well as possible that we will see dramatic gains in student achievement. To this end, Newark Public Schools has developed the Framework for Effective Teaching, which reflects the input and feedback of hundreds of Newark educators and national experts over the past year. It articulates our shared vision of effective instruction, and the key competencies of classroom practice that raise student achievement.

We recognize: Teacher Excellence

Our new compensation system values experience and performance and makes Newark’s teachers among the highest paid in the country.  The universal salary scale helps Newark Public School teachers earn more, earlier in their careers and over their lifetime.  It also includes transition bonuses and ensures that our most effective educators receive substantial rewards for excellence and service in our highest-need subjects and schools.

We are currently accepting applications for all subject areas and all grade levels.
