For Candidates

NOTED 2020 has been canceled. Please revisit this page for updates on NOTED 2021.  

By participating in the Northeast Ohio Teacher Education Day, you will have an opportunity to meet hiring officials from school systems across the region, state, and nation. The event will begin with an open job fair format allowing you to network with representatives from participating school districts. During the networking session, school systems may ask you to return for an initial screening interview during the late morning or the afternoon. The event will be held in the John S. Knight Center, 77 Mill Street, Akron, OH 44308 (phone: 800.245.4254).

Parking information for the event can be found under the Student Success Checklist below.
