• Welcome to the Office of Human Resources


    Thank you for your interest in the South Orange & Maplewood School District. The district is always seeking outstanding applicants for all vacancies. We have a district-wide commitment to quality education, a first-rate administration, faculty and staff, and a comprehensive instructional program. The Human Resources Department oversees the recruitment and hiring of more than 750 district employees for up to 7,000 students. It provides staffing for both professional and support services positions and ensures all employees are compliant with state and federal regulations. 


    The district recognizes that excellence requires a commitment to equity and to identifying and addressing practices, policies, and institutional barriers, including institutional racism, that perpetuate opportunity and achievement gaps. The district is committed to working proactively to acknowledge racial and cultural biases, and eliminate institutional structures and practices that affect student learning and achievement.  In this effort, our mission is to drive the system’s energies through hiring and developing a highly effective workforce. The Human Resources Department supports academic excellence with a key focus on high student achievement, ensuring highly effective teaching, and maximizing efficient and effective operations to support school system goals. 


    Our goal is to provide excellent service. Our website provides an on-line application for administrative, instructional and non-instructional applicants. Additional materials for applicants may be uploaded to your on-line application. Please read all materials carefully and follow the instructions.


    The Human Resources Department is located in the Administrative Building (1st Floor), 525 Academy Street, Maplewood, N J 07040.   Hours are from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m., Monday through Friday
