Princeton Public Schools Hosts Diverse Educators Recruitment Day

Princeton, NJ – Princeton Public Schools is committed to building a diverse staff that reflects the wonderful diversity of our community. On Monday, August 14, Princeton Public Schools hosted a Diverse Educators Recruitment Day for general education teachers, administrators, special education teachers, and other education professionals.

“We know how important it is for students to see individuals who look like them in leadership positions in their classrooms and schools,” said Superintendent Steve Cochrane. “We also know that the more diversity we have among our educators, the better our schools will be for all students.”

94 applicants participated in the recruitment day, many with strong backgrounds in education.

"It was great to see the quality and number of prospective teachers and administrators who turned out for the job fair,” said the district’s Assistant Superintendent for Human Resources , Lew Goldstein. “ Our efforts to recruit and retain additional educators of color will be ongoing as we work to reflect our student and community profile now and in the years to come.”

Princeton Public School will hold additional diversity recruitment days to continue increasing the number of educators of color in the district. Princeton Public Schools will also continue to participate with 17 other school districts in the CJ PRIDE (Central Jersey Program for Recruitment of Diverse Educators) job fair in March of each year.

Princeton Public Schools would like to thank its community partners for supporting the district in its efforts to hire more diverse staff and for helping to spread the word about the Diverse Educators Recruitment Day.
