Welcome to Human Resources

The Human Resources mission is to serve as a source of information and expertise in employment, benefits, compensation, equity and compliance, and employee relations for Oak Ridge Schools employees enabling them to better serve our students. The Human Resources staff is available to assist employees and potential employees in any way we can so the children of Oak Ridge receive the best possible education. Staff members are listed below along with a brief description of their duties in order that you will know whom to call about your particular issue.
