In-person job fair for new reading specialist positions

MARIETTA, GA – Marietta City Schools (MCS) will hold an in-person job fair specifically for educators who desire to be reading specialists in Marietta City Schools. This is a part of the multi-million dollar initiative to fight learning loss and ensure literacy for all students approved by the school board last week.

The MCS Board of Education unanimously approved 40 additional reading specialists in grades 1-5 for next school year. These reading specialists will provide intensive reading instruction, delivered through a 1:10 teacher-student ratio, during the reading block to all students in grades 1-5 who are reading below grade level.

They also approved providing a one-time $5,000 supplement to all credentialed teachers and coaches providing direct reading instruction.

MCS is actively recruiting teachers to be full and part-time reading specialists. As part of the district’s ongoing efforts to recruit and retain top talent, educators in Marietta have access to Orton-Gillingham certification, Science of Reading training, and reading/dyslexia endorsements.
