Kindergarten teacher Brad Davis talks about class sizes at Santa Rosa Elementary.

Large class sizes have been a concern at Maricopa Unified School District, and were a compelling reason for the voter-approved override. Santa Rosa Elementary has particularly felt the stress of growing student numbers.

Superintendent Steve Chestnut, Principal Eva Safranek and teacher Brad Davis spoke with InMaricopa about how the additional funds will impact the school and the district.

Dec. 9, MUSD officially began its recruitment efforts for the upcoming school year.  The district has committed to hiring 50 new teachers and instructional staff members for the 2017-2018 school year.  The district is asking for support from the community and encouraging all internal and external stakeholders to share the news with family, friends and professional acquaintances.

As part of this effort, the District will be hosting a Job Fair on Saturday, Jan. 28, at the District’s Administrative Office Building located at 44150 W. Maricopa-Casa Grande Highway in Maricopa from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. Administrators and supervisors will be present to discuss opportunities and also to conduct interviews for projected openings.

Interested candidates should access the District’s online application at and complete the appropriate application prior to the Job Fair.
