Join Our Team & Learn Why We Are #Proud2BPirates!

Employment Opportunities

  • Working in public education is challenging and rewarding. In the Belton School District, we believe every one of our staff shares the opportunity to help children learn, grow and succeed. We thank you for your interest in serving the students of Belton.

    The moment a child reads their first word…when a student solves a math problem on their own…when a student rings the bell at BHS after being accepted to college or signs a contract for a new career...the delight of students and staff as they start a new year…the joy when a child says, "Thank you for making a difference" after walking across the stage and turning their tassel. Every day in Belton, we have thousands of moments like these — thousands of smiles to share. It's why we are #Proud2BPirates.

    The Belton School District seeks candidates who are eager to make Belton an even more diverse and inclusive district for its students to thrive. A range of backgrounds and perspectives leads to a variety of ideas, knowledge, and approaches, and we believe a deep understanding and valuing of differences is necessary to our overall mission.

    We invite you to share with us your commitment to excellence, passion for innovation, care for people, and love of learning.
