    School District Human Resources

    The Panama-Buena Vista Union School District Human Resources Department is a vital branch of the District's administration.  The mission of Human Resources is to recruit, attract and retain highly qualified certificated and classified employees to implement district programs and provide the best quality services for our students.
    The Panama-Buena Vista Union School District employs three classifications of employees:
    • Certificated employees must have a specialized credential (e.g. teacher, counselor, speech therapist, or school principal)
    • Classified employees may not need a credential but may require further district testing (e.g. CODESP, clerical, accounting,etc.)
    • Management employees fall into two categories:  Certificated and Classified. 
     What makes Panama-Buena Vista Union School District a great place to work?
    The Panama-Buena Vista Union School District, with its focus on providing equitable learning opportunities for all students, is at the forefront of educational reform and committed to ongoing professional development. Eligible new teachers participate in the BTSA Program (Beginning Teacher Support and Assessment) which provides coaching and training to new teachers based on the California Standards for the Teaching Profession.
