Human Resources Website

The Board of Education desires to provide a positive work environment where employees and job applicants are free from harassment and are assured of equal access and opportunities in accordance with law. The Board prohibits discrimination or sexual harassment of any job applicant on the basis of the person’s race, color, ancestry, national origin, immigration status, ethnic group identification, age, religion, marital or parental status, pregnancy, genetic information, military and veteran status, physical or mental disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender, gender identity or expression or the perception of one or more of such characteristics; or association with a person or a group with one or more of these actual or perceived characteristics. 



Thank you for your interest in the Newport-Mesa Unified School District. You may apply at any time for consideration of employment. 


Your application must be completed electronically. Principals and Site Administrators will view your application on the web at any time allowing all applicants equal opportunity to be hired. After you have submitted the application, you will receive a confirmation email with instruction to attach your supporting documents online. Your supporting documents must include a cover letter stating the position for which you are applying, a current resume, three current professional letters of recommendation, copies of your CBEST scores, subject matter competence exam scores (CSET, PRAXIS/SSAT, MSAT, NTE) all credentials you currently hold, and all post-high school transcripts. Hard copies of these documents are no longer accepted for certificated applications.


Q. How will I know that you have received my electronic application?

A. If you provide us with an e-mail address on your application, you will receive an electronic confirmation if you have successfully submitted the application. In addition you will receive a confirmation message and number on your computer screen after you have clicked the submit button. You might also receive an error message, which will direct you to make certain changes and resubmit.

Q. How can I get information about specific job opportunities?

A. All job openings are posted on our web page.

Q. Can I make changes to my application once I have submitted it?

A. Yes, you may edit your application at any time. However, you are not able to delete any documents you have attached, but you may at any time add additional documents.

Q. I sent in my electronic application, but I have not heard from any principals. Can you tell me the status of my file.

A. Please keep in mind that all principals have access to the database where your application is stored and that they make the contacts for interviews. We are fortunate to have a very large applicant base, and therefore every applicant will probably not be contacted. Once the school site makes a recommendation for hire, the final hiring process is taken over by the office of the Director of Human Resources. Feel free to mail a one-page resume to any site where you see an opening that interests you.

All job openings and a salary schedule, as well as information about our schools can also be found on the website. A database of these applications will be available to administrators.
