Human Resources

The mission of the Green Bay Area Public School District Human Resource department is to serve as a strategic partner in support of the academic mission of the Board of Education. We seek to attract an ethnically diverse staff who are committed to engaging and inspiring our increasingly diverse student population.  To that end we will:

  • Treat all employees with dignity and respect
  • Balance the needs of employees with the needs of the District
  • Maintain an open door policy and encourage an exchange of ideas
  • Provide a safe and healthful working environment
  • Recruit and retain qualified employees; attract, develop, motivate and retain a diverse qualified workforce within an inclusive work environment
  • Administer compensation benefits, policies, procedures and regulatory compliance
  • Foster open communication and personal accountability
  • Provide solutions to workplace issues based on policy and best practice
  • Facilitate communication, equal employment opportunities and labor relation services

Human Resources Hours:
Monday through Friday 7:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m.

We do our best to handle walk-in appointments, however the person you need to see may not be available so we recommend calling ahead to schedule an appointment so we can best meet your needs.
