LPS job application process made easier

LAWTON, Okla._The Lawton Public School District’s website is undergoing some changes that the district says will greatly benefit their schools and potential job applicants.

In Thursday’s school board meeting LPS Assistant Superintendent Barbara Ellis announced applicants will no longer have to apply in person. The district's website now offers an applicant portal that will eventually tie together all employee applications all the way through the hiring process.

"We think it's going to alleviate a lot of difficulties for outside of the house, the district, as well as the prospective employee because there's not going to be so much of a paper trail," said LPS Asst. Superintendent Barbara Ellis.

Once an application is filled out online it will remain there forever. Faculty and employees will be able to update their job applications, if needed, by logging onto their profile.  Ellis says so far the update is getting positive feedback.

"We’ve had prospective employees come in and the under 40 age group says yes! I’m so excited that you reached the electronic age, and the over 40 age group says ‘Oh no, I don't think I can do this’, and both have been pleasantly surprised at the ease they can handle the application process," said Ellis.
