    Human Resources (HR) at NASD commits to promoting a positive and responsible environment conducive to staff focus on the mission of student-centered programs and practice.  HR is a conduit for communication, collectively and individually, with applicants, employees, related departments and functions, union leadership, our community, PA Department of Education and governing agencies, State and Federal laws and policies.

    What interactions would I have with HR?

    We are structured to gain information or resolve issues at the most relevant/efficient level.  Your building administrator may be your first stop… However HR has an open door policy and will respond or redirect your questions as appropriate, in an atmosphere of confidentiality, respect, and importance.


    What kinds of questions?

    Your situation may be unique, however may relate to:

    • Position/ Performance:  Job description, moving up or about; extracurricular interest (EPED); certification and continuing education; interpersonal concerns/ suggestions; equitable treatment; mentoring; ethical conduct; compensation
    • Work-Life Issues:  Benefits entitlement; counseling/employee assistance needs; life-changing events; leaves of absence; diversity; individual and organizational health
    •  Policy and Practice:  Seeking clarification and problem solving. 
    How and when do I approach HR?

    Time is of the essence… and discussing a concern takes time.  Seek to resolve your concern with the person of direct influence. Certainly, a building- level question is best resolved with your administrator; a curriculum question, with your teacher leader; a technical question, with your specialist.  Yet, feel free to contact Human Resources whenever you are feeling the need to discuss a work issue or concern.  We look forward to assisting you.
