Employment at Sonoma County School Districts

Sonoma County public schools employ nearly 8,300 people. About half are teachers. Others include administrators, teaching assistants (also known as para-professionals), and various support staff. Positions that do not require a teaching or administrative credential are known as classified positions.

Sonoma County’s 40 school districts are independent of the Sonoma County Office of Education. Each district has its own application and selection procedures. Each does its own recruiting and hiring, for both certificated and classified positions.

For job openings in Sonoma County’s elementary and secondary school districts, please contact the district offices directly. SCOE’s online district directory provides easy access to the addresses, phone numbers, and Web addresses for all 40 local districts. Note that some districts post job openings and support an online application process on their own websites. The statewide EdJoin website also includes job postings for many Sonoma County school districts.
