The Colonial School District, where careers are committed to putting children first, is actively seeking to identify and employ a talented and diverse workforce that will support the school district in achieving its mission and vision. Our Human Resources Division, an innovator of excellence, strives to offer professional and employee-centered service to both current and prospective employees.

Applications for employment are being accepted by the Colonial School District through the AppliTrack online application system.  Please follow the application procedures listed on the vacancy announcement(s). Applicants who do not follow the application procedures or submit the required documents will not be given full consideration for the position in which they have applied. Such documents can include a letter of interest, resume, two (2) recent professional letters of recommendation, Praxis Scores, a copy of licensure/certification, etc.

Application packages will be referred to hiring managers (supervisors, principals, directors, etc.) for consideration and an interview session. Despite an applicant satisfying a position’s minimum requirements, it does not guarantee an interview by the hiring manager.

Other job classifications such as paraeducators, secretaries, technology staff, custodians, transportation staff, and nutrition services staff will also need to follow the application procedures on the vacancy announcement.

If you are seeking to substitute as a teacher within our school district, please contact Kelly Services at (302) 323-4748.

For assistance and inquiries related to the AppliTrack online application system and/or application procedures, please contact a Human Resources representative at jobs@colonial.k12.de.us or 302-323-2712.
