Special Requirements:

  • MUST BE A FEMALE LPN: This is required by the family due to the student's gender.

  • Must have the physical ability to lift over 100 pounds by themselves, as the district may not provide LPN assistance in lifting.

If you meet these requirements and are dedicated to providing exceptional care and support to a student with complex needs, we encourage you to apply for this urgent backfill LPN.
