  • Human Resources Department Mission

    The mission of the Human Resources Department is to solve employee issues so students can learn. We do this by providing support to schools and department leaders, employees and employee groups through planning, implementing and promoting human resource systems and structures that support the Superintendent’s vision and our Strategic Plan.
