Manteca Unified is in need of workers.
There are nearly 60 classified positions ranging from yard duty, office workers, custodians and paraprofessional aides for education programs needed.
“These are jobs that are open now,” emphasized Victoria Brunn, who serves as the district’s outreach coordinator.
The listing of jobs also includes warehouse and food service workers as well as non-teaching substitute classified positions that pay from $13 to $24.27 an hour depending upon the position. The job list can be found by going to the district website at mantcausd.net and clicking on the employment icon on the home page.
Many of the paraprofessional aide programs are ideal for college students given the positions are part-time and generally dovetail well into college schedules.
Brunn said it is possible why the district isn’t seeing applicants for the jobs could have something to do with concerns about whether it is safe to go back to work.
Manteca Unified has robust COVID-19 protocols in place for its 25,000 students and nearly 3,000 fulltime and part-time workers.
It constantly monitors the health of students and staff. It also has its own COVID-19 dash board that can also be found on the district’s website.
All current and confirmed COVID-19 cases involving Manteca Unified student or staff member are reflected on the page. The numbers will be updated at a minimum once per week and will reflect statistics for the previous 14 days from time of posting.
As of Wednesday, there were 10 student and five staff positive cases spread throughout 33 campuses. All have been quarantined and all were external meaning tracing shows they did not contract COVID-19 in a school setting.
Those with symptoms will be reflected on the dashboard for 14 days after they were first detected. That dovetails into CDC guidelines that indicated a person is no longer contagious are 14 days of the first symptom appearing. The exception is those who become severely ill and require hospitalization.
