South Carolina Online Educator Employment System
Recruiting High-Quality Teachers To The Palmetto State Is Our Goal

The Center for Educator Recruitment, Retention, and Advancement (CERRA) welcomes you to the South Carolina Online Educator Employment System. Through CERRA's website, you can have instant access to a statewide educator Job Bank, the Online Application that enables you to apply to any or all public school districts or special schools in the state, and much more.

Once you have completed the Online Application, you will be able to submit it to any or all public school districts and special schools in South Carolina.

To get started, you can either search our Job Bank for current vacancies to apply for or skip straight to the Online Application to submit your information to a district or special school for future openings.

Important note: On Saturday, September 21st, 2013, CERRA modified the Online Application to allow applicants to upload documents to their application. These documents include transcripts (required), letters of eligibility (for PACE, CATE, etc. candidates), and athletic resumes (if an applicant wishes to be considered for a coaching assignment). No other documents should be uploaded. CERRA no longer accepts e-mails or hard copies of these documents.
