Dear District #7 families,
Like school districts and businesses both locally and nationally, District #7 is facing an employee shortage. To seek individuals to fill these important roles, we’ve increased our presence at job fairs and on college campuses, posted on a variety of sites including student job platforms at SIUE and Lewis & Clark CC, and are now recruiting at the Goshen Market. Last spring, we initiated referral and signing bonuses and are continuing to explore a variety of other incentives.
Our employees are our greatest asset and help make District #7 the school district it is, and we will continue to seek new ways to show our appreciation and gratitude. Moving forward, we are pleased to announce that we will be restructuring our monitor and cafeteria positions to include more hours and/or the option of a full-time position.
As the 2022-23 school year approaches, we are looking to fill several vacancies in our schools. If you or someone you know enjoys working with students and wants to make a difference in their lives, we invite you to apply online today!
District #7 currently has the following positions open:
- 24 Program/Extra-ordinary Care Assistants ($13.10 – $15.61/hour)
- 9 Monitors ($13.00 – $14.38/hour)
- 19 Food Service ($13.40 – $14.59/hour)
- 1 Secretary ($14.31 – $15.11/hour)

- 9 Custodians ($14.95 – $16.80/hour)
- 2 Maintenance ($16.60 – $17.71/hour)
- 30 Kid Zone Counselors ($13.00/hour)
Additionally, our assistant positions will now offer a sign-on/retention bonus with $500 paid in December and in May, while our Kid Zone counselor positions will offer a sign-on retention bonus of $250, also paid in December and in May.
A complete listing of open positions and job descriptions can be found here: https://ecusd7.tedk12.com/hire/index.aspx.
District #7 will hold open interviews on Tuesday, August 2 from 2-5 p.m. at Edwardsville High School for all these positions. No appointments are required. Please bring an updated resume.
Among the many benefits these positions offer include:
- Working while your kids are in school
- Enjoying the same school breaks and holidays
- Great working hours
- Full-time and part-time substitute positions fit flexible schedules and needs
If you would like more information about open positions that may be available at your child’s school, you may contact the building principal. If you have general questions, please contact the Personnel Department at 656-1182. We hope you will consider sharing these opportunities with friends and family that may be interested in working for the Edwardsville Community School District.
With Tiger Pride,
