Human Resources Department

Welcome to the Human Resources Department 

The Human Resources Department supports the Ramapo Indian Hills Regional High School District in its mission to:

  • Demonstrate proficiency by meeting or exceeding all core standards through a rigorous and comprehensive curriculum;
  • Build and maintain an environment of trust where all students and staff feel safe and secure to learn and work;
  • Develop areas of critical thinking, communication, collaboration, creativity, innovation, and problem solving;
  • Leverage applicable technologies, including relevant tools, skills, and understandings, in the learning process;
  • Promote leadership, responsibility, adaptability, integrity, productivity, independence, and acceptance;
  • Encourage and support wellness and a healthy style of living;
  • Increase personal responsibility, social awareness and civic responsibility for humanitarian and environmental needs; and
  • Enhance the social, intellectual, and emotional development of each student.

As such, our focus is on the students of our district and we seek teachers, administrators, and support staff that best meet the requirements in fulfilling that mission. By working together with the district's administrators and the business office, human resources works to develop a supportive workplace designed to encourage staff teamwork, innovation and creativity. The human resources department strives to assist department supervisors and the district's administrative team in:

  • Attracting and retaining qualified, talented, dedicated and diverse staff members that provide the district's students with an educational experience that will equip them with the skills required for success in the 21st century;
  • Providing professional learning and development designed to equip district staff with the knowledge, skills and abilities needed to be effective and impactful educators in the 21st century classroom;
  • Establishing and implementing a comprehensive mentoring program for novice teachers;
  • Recognizing the achievements of our staff and their contributions to the school district and the FLOW community at-large;
  • Implementing a total rewards program that includes a competitive salary guide and a health benefits program that matches the needs of our staff and their families; and
  • Providing an "open door" for staff to encourage open communication, feedback and discussion with the knowledge that any discussions will be handled in an unbiased, confidential and timely manner.

Combined, these efforts will help to ensure: our students receive the best possible education; our staff is provided with the training and/or support necessary to help our students excel in a 21st century classroom environment; we continue to provide our staff with what is necessary to achieve a positive work/life balance; the district makes continuous improvement the "expectation" for all staff and students; and the district upholds its commitment to excellence.

Employee Residency Requirements: 

Effective September 1, 2011, the “New Jersey First Act” contains new residency requirements for most public officers and employees. Current, new, or prospective public employees should be aware that the New Jersey First Act, N.J.S.A. 52:14-7 (L. 2011, Chapter 70), requires employees of all public employers (for example, state, county, and municipal governments), public agencies, authorities, boards, bodies, commissions, public institutions of higher education, certain quasi-public entities, and all school boards to reside in the State of New Jersey unless otherwise exempted under the law. "Effective September 1, 2011, all employees of State and local government must reside in the State of New Jersey, unless exempted under law. If you already work for State or local government as of September 1, 2011, and you do not live in New Jersey, you are not required to move to New Jersey. However, if you begin your office, position or employment on September 1, 2011 or later, you must reside in New Jersey. If you do not reside in New Jersey, you have one year after the date you take your office, position or employment to relocate your residence to New Jersey. If you do not do so, you are subject to removal from your office, position or employment." Please visit for additional information.
