Job Opportunities-Certificated Employment

Thank you for your interest in a career with the Northshore School District!

Certificated roles include Teachers, Occupational/Physical Therapists, Speech Language Pathologists, School Psychologists, and Counselors. 

NSD is a large district and uses “pool” postings to collect applications in anticipation of filling multiple vacancies. Job pools for the ensuing school year are posted in late January. Applying to the relevant pool posting(s) will allow principals in the district to see your application and contact you if you are selected for an interview. 

Once the school year begins we accept applications for specific positions as they are posted. Certificated staff are hired throughout the year for limited term assignments.

Why NSD?

We are committed to attracting, developing, and retaining a highly qualified workforce that appreciates the diversity of the community and is committed to practices that are responsive to the needs of all students and families.


Certificated substitutes are hired throughout the school year as needed.

On August 18, 2021, Governor Inslee announced a directive (Proclamation 21-14.1) requiring all employees working for public and private K–12 schools to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or obtain a religious or medical exemption by October 18, 2021

We are legally required to follow the Governor’s directive. The order applies to all employees, substitutes, and contractors working for Northshore School District.  New hires must be fully vaccinated by the first day of work or be approved for a medical or religious-based exemption.

Proof of vaccination will be required upon hire and will be treated as a confidential medical record.
