New Employees

Thank you for considering Edgewood Independent School District (EISD). We are an urban multi-cultural District that offers opportunities to employees who are committed to making a difference in the lives of children.

Before consideration for prospective employment, the following items must be submitted in order for the application to be considered complete:

  • Employment Application
    • Complete an application online.
  • Reference Forms
    • Option #1 - You will need to submit an email address for your references in your application. An electronic reference request will be sent automatically. If you do not have the email address of your references then you will need to follow the procedures in option # 2.
    • Option #2 - Download, complete and submit three, addressed stamped envelopes and reference forms to the Human Resources Department. Edgewood will process the reference forms.
    • Former and/or present employers will be contacted for employment verification. If you prefer that your present employer not be contacted, you must state this on the application.
  • Credentials/Certificates/Licenses
    • Attach copies as required by the job qualifications. You must also submit documentation of educational attainment, for example, High school diploma, GED certificate or college transcripts.

Your application will not be processed until the Human Resources Department obtains all of the required information listed above. If you are applying for a posted position, all documentation must be submitted before you will be considered for a position.

Applicants undergo a pre-screening process, which includes a review of an application for completion, criminal history check, prior employment reference checks, and other reviews as necessary. If all credentials are met for the job applying for, the application will be forwarded to the hiring official. Your application shall remain active for a period not to exceed 365 days from the date of this application. If you wish to be considered for employment beyond this period, you will be required to submit a new application.

All non-certified employees and substitutes hired on or after January 1, 2008, must submit fingerprint identification information to the Texas Education Agency (TEA) and the Department of Public Safety (DPS) before beginning employment. After a recommendation for hire is received, the EISD Talent Management Department will forward demographic information on the applicant to TEA. TEA will email a “FAST Pass” form to the District which will be used by the applicant to schedule an appointment with TEA for fingerprinting.

Thank you for your interest in the Edgewood Independent School District.
