Human Resources

Welcome to the Human Resources Department of Portland Public Schools, one of Portland’s largest employers.

Portland Public Schools has nearly 1,300 employees, including approximately 700 teachers.  We have one of the most diverse student populations in the state of Maine, with approximately 60 languages spoken in our 17 schools.  We also have a district-wide program, Bayside Learning Community, that provides additional support for students receiving special education services in grades K-12, with the goal of transitioning them back to their neighborhood home schools.  Meanwhile, our adult education program serves 4,500 lifelong learners annually, including 2,000 English language learners from 81 countries.

Human Resources is responsible for supporting all of the district’s employment needs, including hiring new employees, managing benefits and leaves of absence, and administering the district's four collective bargaining agreements.  Our team works to ensure that educators and support staff can devote their full attention to achieving the district's mission of educational excellence for all students in a safe and nurturing environment.

The district’s dedication to continuing professional development is unmatched.  Our innovative and unique teacher salary schedule is tied to professional development.  Human Resources supports this aspect of the district's mission by processing educational assistance funding requests submitted by educators and support staff for seminars and college courses.

Our department consists of eight Human Resources professionals who work tirelessly to ensure that we are meeting the needs of the district's employees.  I hope you will explore our website to learn more about the services we provide, the excellent fringe benefits we offer, and the exciting job opportunities that are available in the Portland Public Schools.

Sincerely,

Barbara Stoddard
Executive Director of Human Resources
