Human Resources

Welcome to the Human Resources Department of Yellow Springs Schools!

The mission of the Human Resources Department is to recruit, select, and hire the best employees to teach and work in Yellow Springs Schools. Our goal is aligned with the overall district goal to strategically support academic excellence by supporting all Yellow Springs Schools students in “contributing to the intellectual and cultural richness of the community and [developing] the skills and knowledge to become socially responsible self-directed, lifelong learners.” Our commitment is to provide information that is useful, accurate, and given in a timely manner to both our employees and to the community.

The Human Resources Department handles all employee matters for the district. We assist employees with employee support, leave, license renewal, mentoring new teachers, management and contract compliance of both bargained agreements, employee contracts, identification badges, posting positions, maintaining personnel records, new teacher mentoring, student-teacher placement, and many other staff-related issues. We support our staff members in professional growth opportunities, which are consistent with the district’s mission and goals.


Thank you for taking an interest in Yellow Springs Schools! We are always looking for skilled, innovative, and empathetic classroom teachers, related services personnel, and school nurses who see teaching and empowering young people as a life calling and who seek to be part of an effective team.
