Welcome to Human Resources

The District currently employs approximately 1,300 certificated personnel and 850 classified (non-instructional) personnel. We are always seeking creative, dynamic and hard-working individuals to join our team in our quest to provide excellent educational services to the Ventura student and parent community.

- Classified Employment encompasses all non-instructional positions including, but not limited to the following job families: clerical/secretarial, custodial/grounds, maintenance, child nutrition, accounting/fiscal, instructional support/child care, child development teachers, and information/data processing.
What Makes VUSD a Great Place to Work?
The Ventura Unified School District is an equal opportunity employer. The District fosters a culture of fair and equitable practices in all of its activities, policies, programs and procedures to provide all individuals regardless of age, color, race, ethnic group identification, national origin, religion, disability, sex, gender, sexual orientation or marital status equal access to jobs and promotional opportunities.
Additionally, the District operates under the provisions of the Merit System of the California Education Code in the administration of classified employment. Such a system is adopted in approximately 100 school districts in the State of California, and revolves on the principle of an open and competitive process (i.e. based on ability and performance) in recruitment, selection and promotion of employees.
The District offers great health and welfare and retirement (STRS/PERS) benefits to its permanent employees. Please visit the Risk Management/Benefits division of the Business Services Department for more information on employment benefits.
