STEP 1: HR ORIENTATION
Reserve your 45-minute onsite orientation by clicking here. Days and times are pre-scheduled and available on a first-come, first-served basis. It is strongly encouraged to reserve your time slot early. During your orientation, you will meet with a representative from Human Resources to:

  • Submit completed employment forms and bank documentation for direct deposit (see Step 3)
  • Provide original social security card & photo ID
  • Have picture taken for district badge
  • Be fingerprinted and provide $50 fee (if applicable)

Additionally, you will meet with the Benefits Specialist to receive a packet of information to take home.


STEP 2: SAFE SCHOOLS TRAINING
Safe Schools Training must be completed prior to your onsite orientation. The nine (9) online modules, consisting of videos and board policy documents, take approximately two to three hours to complete and can be done intermittently. Login instructions can be found here and includes a link to access the program.


STEP 3: EMPLOYMENT FORMS
The following employment documents must be completed and printed in their entirety prior to your onsite orientation. You will need to select each link to access each form. You may choose to complete any or all sections of the forms on paper or using a computer; however, forms must be submitted with your original signature at the time of your orientation. If you are not able to print documents at home, many libraries, community centers and copy centers provide computer rental stations for free or a nominal fee.
