Floyd County Schools is now taking job applications online.


Superintendent Danny Adkins comments, “We’re catching up with the rest of the state in implementing this system. Over 90 school districts in Kentucky currently use the TalentEd system and we’re hoping that this can help us attract employee candidates that may not otherwise have been able to apply easily in Floyd County.”


Adkins explains why this system may help increase the number of applicants saying, “Before we started using this, you had to come in to our central office and pick up a paper copy of our application to fill out or you could download one from our website and then fill it out.  If you chose to download the application, you would still have to bring it in to the office, along with several supporting documents that we ask for in the case of certain positions. Now, you will be able to log in to this system, fill out an application and upload the supporting documents we need. For example, if someone chooses to fill out an application to be a teacher in another school district, the applicant will also be able to see that we have a similar vacancy and could then choose to send his or her application to us also. Hopefully, this will increase the number of applicants for Floyd County Schools.”


Adkins continues, “We still need the same information and documentation that we have always asked for, this just allows us to be more visible around the state and to expedite our process.”


A blue button saying “Apply Online Today!” is located on the home page of Floyd County Schools website, under Superintendent Adkins’ picture. You can also find the button on the Human Resources page under Employment. Job descriptions are linked to vacancies so that applicants can learn more about the duties before applying.


Concluding his comments, Adkins said, “We hope to be able to attract teacher applicants with those harder to find certifications, like secondary physical science for example. And by the way, we are looking to hire bus drivers so try our new system out and apply to drive today!”
