KPDSB launches new application process for employment opportunities

01 Dec. 2016

Media Release - December 1, 2016

The Keewatin-Patricia District School Board (KPDSB) is launching a new platform for receiving applications for positions with the organization.

Apply To Education provides a paperless application system that streamlines the recruitment process for applicants by allowing them to fill out one application online and upload all of their supporting documents to complete their portfolio. 

Beginning today, when individuals access they will be directed to to create a profile and apply for jobs.  Additionally, job seekers can request to receive e-mail alerts when a new job is advertised for the Board.  There is no cost to applicants to utilize this service.

The use of Apply To Education will replace previous procedures for applying for jobs and being hired within the KPDSB.  This platform will also provide additional services within the Board, including management of absences for staff as well as internal job postings.

Jocelyn Bullock, Human Resources Manager stated “We are excited to move forward with this project and look forward to the new working relationship with Apply to Education to improve the overall experiences of potential future employees and current staff”.

Students were filmed showing their skills on the ice and were interviewed about their experiences in the hockey academy. We are very pleased with the progress of the program and the impact it is having on the engagement and academic achievement of the students at our school.

Site Preparation for New High School Begins On October 28, 2015

27 Oct. 2015

We would like to inform our school community that the fall site preparations for the construction of the new high school next spring will commence this week.

The Senior Administration of the KPDSB had asked for approval and support from the Ministry of Education to be allowed to prepare the site before the ground froze delaying the preparations until next spring. Last week, the Board was informed to proceed and award a tender to a contractor. This was done on Friday, October 23rd, of last week. Consequently, we have been informed this afternoon that site preparations for the new high school will begin on Wednesday, October 28, 2015.

The site preparation will require the delivery of materials to grade the high school site and will involve the use of heavy machinery. We expect that this construction phase will continue until the end of November.

In order to ensure the safety of our students, the entire construction site will be fenced off and the entrance to our school through Curtis Avenue will be closed off. Students can continue to enter the school grounds from 1st Avenue and have the option of using the trail located at the southwest corner of the school property, located off of Second Avenue.

We want to ensure that this project is conducted in a safe manner and we will address any issues as they may arise.

If you have any concerns, please contact the Principal, Michael Boos.
