$1,000 Referral Bonus
As a Newark Board of Education employee, we believe you know better than anyone who can be successful here. You can speak to why our schools are a great place to work and to the impact all employees have on our students.
If you are a current employee and you refer a Bilingual, ESL, Special Education, Science, or Math teacher for the 2021-22 or 2022-23 school year, you can earn $1,000 per hire (minus applicable taxes). This Referral Bonus is open to current NBOE staff only (exceptions apply, see guidelines below).
You must log into Google using your NBOE username and password to fill out the form.
How it Works

For each referral we hire in the capacity of Bilingual, ESL, Special Education, Science, or Math teacher for the 2021-22 or 2022-23 school year, you receive $1,000.
