Application Process

Thank you for your interest in working for the Bismarck Public School District. We are committed to hiring the best employees to work with our students. We use an online application for all of our teaching, administrative, professional support staff and support staff positions.

The district accepts applications for most positions only when a specific position has been listed on our website. If you are interested in being considered for a position please be sure you are applying and submitting your application for a specific job opening.

The opening for instructional aides is listed throughout the school year and we fill specific openings from this pool of applications.

Specific application requirements will be listed with the specific vacancy. Applicants for all positions must complete the online application. The district doesn't accepts paper applications for any of our job openings.

Do not send any application materials to the district office. Most information, including the development of your resume and answers to our essay questions, must be entered electronically. Supplemental materials, including transcripts, letters of reference, placement file, and a copy of your current North Dakota teaching license can be uploaded in PDF format as instructed on the screen.

Applications for head coaching positions will be accepted when a specific position has been listed but applications for sub-varsity positions will be accepted anytime and the positions will be filled as needed. The district currently supports the following athletic activities: Baseball, Basketball, Cheerleading, Cross-Country, Drill Team, Football, Golf, Gymnastics, Hockey, Soccer, Girls Softball, Swimming, Tennis, Track, Volleyball, and Wrestling.

Contact the Human Resources Office at 701-323-4070 if you have questions.

Application Procedure Resources

Effective February 1, 2014, Bismarck Public Schools is now using a new online application program, TalentEd Recruit & Hire. Click on the link below to begin the application process.

TalentEd Recruit & Hire (link)

The Bismarck Public School District uses an online application process. All external applicants must complete the online application to be considered for all job openings with BPS.

Helpful Hints:
#1 With most applications there is the option to attach a cover letter. Please be aware that if you change your cover letter and attach a new one, it will replace the cover letter in all previous applications. There is a long-answer box within the application itself for you to type a cover letter and that allows you to customize it for the job you are applying for.

#2 Uploading Attachments - you are limited to uploading 6 documents as attachments. If, for instance, you have multiple transcripts, we suggest you scan them all into one document and upload it that way. The same with the other attachments. If those documents are multiple pages, scan them all together into one document and upload it that way.

The link for the internal application is found in the upper right corner at the TalentEd Recruit & Hire site. Current BPS employees can complete the internal application to apply for positions in the same category as their current job (i.e., current contracted teachers applying for a different teaching position, support staff employees applying for a different support staff position, etc.). Temporary employees and substitutes, both regular and long term, are NOT considered internal applicants and should complete the external application to apply for posted positions.

Veteran's Preference will be applied for qualified applicants in compliance with the North Dakota Century Code.
