At Kingsport City Schools (KCS) we place the care, education and development of our students and employees at the forefront of what we do.  We are excited that you want to contribute to our culture of inspiring students, cultivating relationships and making a positive impact on young people in our community.   

If you are ready to dive into 21st century teaching and learning, whether teaching in the classroom or supporting our schools in the many roles available, then please proceed through the application process below.

application process details

All applications for a position with KCS are submitted on-line. Applicants must create an account in FastTrack (the on-line application system).  You will automatically be connected to the FastTrack application system by accessing the links below to view positions. 
When completing your application in our system please be sure to include information in all fields.  Applications are reviewed prior to selecting candidates for interview. Failure to include all relevant information may impact whether you are called for an interview.
TEACHER CANDIDATES:  IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU INCLUDE LICENSURE INFORMATION WHERE REQUESTED.  Please include grade level and area(s) of endorsement where appropriate.  If you are in the process of obtaining your license, but it has not yet been issued, you should include the grade level and area(s) of endorsement you are seeking and indicate that your license is in process.  Applications that do not include this information may be overlooked.
The general teaching applications are open for elementary, middle school, high school and special education.  This is an opportunity to get your application started and into our system.  As individual teaching assignments at schools and in specific subjects/grades are posted, you will need to attach your application to those individual teaching assignments.  Teaching positions will be posted from now through the summer of 2020 in preparation for the coming school year.  Interviews will also be taking place from March through summer of 2020.  If you are not immediately called for interview, you may still receive a call for interview throughout the spring or summer.
ALL CANDIDATES:  When completing an on-line application, current KCS employees will need to use a personal email to create an account.  If an employee has previously applied for a position using FastTrack, you will need to use the same login information from your original profile.  Your "k12k" email cannot be used in the FastTrack system.  If you have any difficulty in accessing or creating an account, please contact HR.

Applications will be kept on file for one year from the last time updated.   


Three (3) completed references (non-family members) are required for consideration for a position with Kingsport City Schools. You can submit your application prior to references being returned for most positions other than substitute positions. At least three (3) references (non-family members) must be returned before any substitute position may be submitted.

*Current employees are not required to complete the three reference requirement.



If you need assistance with the application process please contact Donna Williams, Human Resources Office Assistant, at dwilliams@k12k.com or (423) 378-2157.
