Welcome to

For all FULL-TIME positions initially posted June 29, 2023, and later, visit the link below to apply.


This is the  NEW home for applying for positions with Marshall County Schools.  The state legislature has mandated that all school systems use this particular online job posting website.    All future positions will be posted through this system--the categories have changed so look at ALL vacancies to be sure not to miss any.

If you need assistance or have other questions, call the personnel department at 304-843-4400, ext. 310.  We do NOT accept paper applications.

Update:  The WVDE stated that the import feature from our old system to the new consortium system is not working properly.  Applicants who had an existing application in the old system are advised to create a new profile in the NEW system.  The password recovery function will not work if you are trying to recover a password from the old system.

If you are applying for a position and haven't used the system since before July 1, 2023, create a new profile.  Pay attention to any issues that prevent you from submitting an application.  If there are required fields left blank, you must enter information in them to continue.

If you are applying for a substitute teacher position, upload your college transcripts.

If you are applying for a substitute service personnel position, please upload your high school diploma and college transcripts if you have taken college classes.

If you are applying for an administrative position, please upload your undergraduate AND all graduate transcripts.  If called for an interview, bring proof of the last two years of evaluations.

How to Become a Substitute Teacher

Marshall County Schools currently evaluates and may hire substitute teachers with a four-year degree or more.  Visit HERE to learn more about becoming a substitute teacher.  Then, apply online with us.  IF you are selected, approved by the board, pass the background check, complete initial online training and orientation, MCS will approve your substitute teacher certification.  If you have not been hired by our board, we will not approve your certification--be patient.  If you a current WV certified teacher, you do not need substitute authorization/certification.

To avoid the creation of multiple accounts, your first step (if you have not already completed this) is to go to, choose register, and complete the information requested.  The login and password you are assigned will be the same login and password you use for WVLearns.  This is what is called a Webtop account (if you already have one, you do not need to create another.)

Initial substitute teachers without full teaching credentials must visit Substitute ( and login with your K12 email address (or Webtop account) and password to take the Initial Substitute Permit training.  If you want to be certified for long-term elementary education subbing, you must also take the Long Term Substitute Permit Reading module.  Email pdf copies of the certificate(s) of completion to the personnel department.
