About the Kansas Education Employment Board
In September 2007, the Special Education Services (SES) Team of the Kansas Department of Education launched a redesigned Kansas Education Employment Board (KEEB). The mission of KEEB is to provide districts, schools, and organizations in Kansas with an efficient online recruitment tool to attract and hire highly qualified educators. KEEB allows schools and institutions across the state of Kansas to post job openings and locate candidates. Individuals interested in a career in education can post an application and apply for specific positions. KEEB provides up to date information on both job postings and applicants via RSS feeds that individuals can receive via their computer or mobile device. In addition, applicants can learn about Kansas licensure, scholarship/loan deferement programs, and Kansas teacher preparation programs.
