The Bakersfield City School District will hold its Teacher Job Fair on March 17.

The fair will run from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Downtown Elementary School, 2021 M Street. Information will be provided about openings in the district, with school staff on hand to answer questions. The event will also offer onsite interviews.
