In a normal year, the teacher job fair for the Arlington ISD would be held on a weekend at a packed Dan Dipert Career & Technical Center with each of the 78 campuses having tables ready for face-to-face meetings.

But this is not a normal year.

The school district said in a news release that with schools closed for the remainder of the year due to COVID-19, the district is getting creative in the event that runs from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on Tuesday.

The Arlington ISD is using the CareerEco Virtual Fairs platform for the event and those interested can register at

“We know these are unique times so we’re switching things up,” Scott Kahl, Assistant Superintendent of Human Resources, said in the announcement.

“We’ve done smaller job fairs virtually before so we’re prepared for this. This will be big for us and for the job candidates. Our goal is always to find highly qualified teachers. That doesn’t change regardless of the circumstances. This gives us the best chance to do that,” Kahl said.

Job candidates will meet with principals and other administrators virtually during the four-hour window as the district looks to hire approximately 500 teachers at all levels, with numerous openings for Pre-K, bilingual and special education teachers.

The district has about 60,000 students and 8,500 staff members.
