Human Resources Department

The employees of the Ypsilanti Community Schools constitute the most important resource for proving a quality educational program for our students.

Recognizing this, it is the goal of the Human Resources Department to:

  • Attract, recruit, select, employ, and retain the best-qualified employees available.
  • Ensure consistent and equitable employment practices exist within the District.
  • Provide ongoing communications of personnel policies and procedures to all employees in a manner that clearly defines and enhances the School Board's and administration's values and expectations.

The Human Resources Department provides a wide array of support services for the District and its 600 employees. The primary responsibilities of this Department are recruitment and selection of all regular and substitute employees; ways and benefits administration; union contract management and negations; employee counseling; guidance to supervisors dealing with job performance issues; ensuring and monitoring professional staff certification; and compliance with applicable Federal and State regulations.
