Are you looking for a job? 

Have you always wanted to work at a school? 

Riverside Adult School's Job Skills course can help you! 

Students who are successful in this course will be eligible for placement as a Riverside Unified substitute employee as a Custodian and/or Nutrition Service employee! All fees for the pre employment screenings are grant funded and of no charge to the student. Physical, drug/background screening - all paid for! If the cost associated with becoming a substitute employee has held you back from applying then this is a great way to overcome that!

Potential students must be over the age of 18 and no longer enrolled/eligible to be enrolled in high school. A high school diploma or GED is not required to be employed (but if you want to, we can help you with that too!). 

A reading assessment is given on the first day of class and students must score in the 9th grade or above range for reading. This requirement is in place due to the level of reading required in the certification and district examination portion of the course. Students who score below the 9th grade level may not continue with the course and may re-test at a later date and attempt to register again for the next interval of Job Skills.

Valid United States government issued identification and authorization to work in the U.S. is required to register.  Passports, driver's license, state identification cards, permanent resident cards suffice for photo/identity verification. A social security card is required in addition to the photo identification. The social security card must be signed by you.

Here are some of the items you will complete during this class:

RUSD district custodial exam
Fingerprinting/Background check
Drug screening
TB test
Physical exam
Food Handlers Card
