Job fair for displaced Providence teachers postponed to June 6-8

The job fair for teachers displaced by the recent school closings has been postponed until the week of June 6 to make more positions available. The so-called “match event,” originally set for Wednesday and Thursday, would have taken place before teachers were hired at the four schools identified last year as being chronically low-performing. Teachers at these schools are hired through a different process that includes interviews with a school-based committee and examples of teachers’ work.
