As the district works to hire, develop, and retain a highly qualified staff, the goal of the Human Resources Office is to provide excellent service and to build a team of professionals who are passionate about the success of all students, and who are willing to dedicate the necessary time and resources to meet the diverse needs of the Huntington School District.
