The Human Resources Division is one of twenty one divisions staffed to the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. The division reports to the State Superintendent. The Division is responsible for providing the full range of human resources management services for 800 permanent positions and 700 plus contractor positions. These services include, but are not limited to, position classification, organization design/analysis/management, recruitment, salary administration, benefits administration/education, performance management, employee relations/counseling, job application/employee records management, and staff development.
Beginning in October 2009, the School District Personnel Support staff was organized to be a part of Human Resources Division. The School District Personnel Support function provides consultative services to the human resources administrators in the 115 local school districts. The consultative services include advice and guidance regarding the State Board of Education policies governing benefits and employment for the local school district employees.
