Certified (Licensed) Applicants

Certified staff is an applicant-type for those applicants who are required to have a Tennessee teaching license and include teachers, school administrators, guidance counselors, librarians, and psychologists.

Thank you for your interest in Maryville City Schools! In order to be considered for employment with the district, you must first submit an online application. You must have a valid email account in order to apply.  Please use our new* application process at https://mcsd.tedk12.com/hire.  All applicants must complete the online application and answer the background questions in order for your application to receive consideration.

You should apply for positions that you are interested in and/or qualified for. Your application will be considered by the district if a position should become available that matches your qualifications.

Your online application will be kept active in our system for one (1) year from the date you last submitted and/or updated your application. Make sure to keep your online application updated as you gain additional experience or education or wish to modify your personal information or references.

In addition to the completed online application, you must attach the following documents to be considered for employment.
