North Vancouver School District is seeking applications from qualified Learning Services Teachers in anticipation of our potential needs for the 2022-23 school year. Successful applicants would receive a continuing contract, and would be encouraged to apply in category E.20.6.a for positions for which they have the required qualifications and experience; if unsuccessful through the post and fill process, HR would be in contact with the candidate regarding available positions in the summer.  If, after August 15, there is only one position available for which a teacher has the required qualifications, they may be placed into that position.  Successful applicants who are not placed by September would be asked to work full in an on-call capacity, replacing daily or extended absences as needed, until a position becomes available.
