ACA: American Counseling Association
School Counseling Job Openings

Most school counselor positions are coordinated by the state Department of Education. In many cases, the state does not coordinate the openings directly, rather an outside organization approved by the state runs education job boards. In each case, the state sanctioned option is provided.

Delaware, Idaho, Michigan, Nevada, New York, Oregon, Rhode Island, and Texas (in blue) do not coordinate on a state level. The individual school districts handle all job openings. The pages linking to individual school districts are provided. Contact all relevant districts separately. New Jersey and Pennsylvania follow this pattern, but sanction other resources for job seekers in schools in addition to the district coordination. The NJ/PA links have the details.

Hawai'i (green) does not allow individual applications. They maintain a job pool for education, and as positions open, they contact candidates from the pool. Decisions are made at the district level, but district information is not available to the public.

Oklahoma (in red) and Utah refer educators to the national site http://www.teachers-teachers.com/. In Utah, the site is mandatory for all school districts. In Oklahoma, it's used by "most" districts. Click on Oklahoma for details.

North Dakota (in red) does not have a unified system for teaching jobs. The state Department of Instruction refers to North Dakota Job Services. However, North Dakota Job Services does not take all positions from all school districts. Click on North Dakota for details.
