Office of Human Resources
The Office of Human Resources is dedicated to accomplishing the following strategic goals:
- Recruiting, hiring, and retaining the most highly qualified faculty and staff in support of the District's commitment “to the success of each child in a safe, supportive, and stimulating learning environment.”
- Promoting positive labor relations through collaborative problem-solving and open communication.
- Ensuring a safe and professional work environment that emphasizes mutual respect and maximizes effectiveness.
The Arlington Schools believe that excellence in education cannot be achieved without educated, well-trained and highly motivated teachers and administrators. We also believe that a strong staff is a diverse staff, representative of a variety of national, regional, ethnic, religious and social heritages. Teachers joining the Arlington School District will find endless opportunities to practice their profession and to advance in it.
- Providing employment-related resources and information to employees in a timely manner.
The Office of Human Resources provides direction to all District personnel functions. These include professional and classified staff recruitment, employment and retention; contract negotiations and administration; strategic planning related to the professional and classified staff; Civil Service and State Education Department compliance; and identifying and developing initiatives related to the ongoing organizational development of the Arlington School District.
