Officials with the Oklahoma State Department of Education (OSDE) announced the launch of a new online tool that pairs teachers with job openings in Oklahoma public school districts.

Officials say using the Oklahoma Educator Credentialing System (OECS), school administrators can post job openings at OKTeacherMatch.com.

Administrators will be able to access a pool of educators who are seeking employment and are certified in their desired subject areas.

Educators that are certified will be able to see vacancies that match their credentials, officials say.

Teachers must have a valid Oklahoma teaching credential to be eligible to use this feature.

“The job match features found at OKTeacherMatch.com are a breakthrough in connecting districts with qualified educators and will streamline our efforts to help ensure our students have equitable access to an effective teacher in every classroom,” State Superintendent of Public Instruction Joy Hofmeister said. “We are excited to launch this convenient and innovative tool that will make the hiring process less burdensome on teachers and administrators, and ultimately benefit kids.”

Officials say the new job portal displays estimated salaries for each job opening, reflecting the average $7,400 teacher pay raise over the last two years and the job-seeking teacher’s degree level and years of experience.

Those interested can access the new job match portal through OSDE’s Single Sign On by visiting OKTeacherMatch.com.
