We Need You!

Medina City Schools is looking for a few good employees. We have several jobs that are perfect for parents with school aged children. Our Cafeteria Servers and Cooks normally work between 2.5-5.0 hours a day and are generally done working by 1:30 p.m. We also need Support Paraprofessionals who act as lunchroom, recess or study hall monitors. These positions range from 2.25-4.5 hours a day with most being during midday hours.

If you are looking for full time work with a good benefits package, we are in need of Custodians and a Repairperson in the Maintenance department. Both of these jobs would likely be 2nd shift with a start time between 2:30-3:15 p.m.

An on-line application for these positions can be accessed at: www.medinaoh.org/job-opportunites or the Medina Civil Service office at 132 N Elmwood.

If you are looking for more flexibility in a work schedule, we are also in need of support staff substitutes and have just received approval for an increase in the substitute pay rates. For additional information about subbing, please contact Deb Nelsen at (330)636-3013.
