The Human Resources Department of the ECASD is responsible for the development, implementation and administration of the recruitment, selection, and other employment policies and procedures of the ECASD. It is charged with developing those policies, which are designed to attract and retain the best-qualified and available employees to provide services and support programs directed towards the education of the children of the community. In addition, the Human Resources Department performs many other functions on behalf of the school district such as administering the school district's equal employment policies and procedures as well as ensuring the district's compliance to all local, state and federal laws and regulations designed to provide and ensure equal employment opportunities for all individuals of the community.
