Welcome to RSU 21
Welcome to the Office of Human Resources, it is our pleasure to serve you. The first thing you should know about RSU 21 is that we are an equal opportunity employer and take this commitment very seriously. We strive to be a welcoming and inclusive community that supports the safety and well-being of all our students, faculty, and staff. We are committed to implementing programs and practices that support diversity, equity, and inclusion. As part of this commitment, we welcome all applicants. RSU 21 does not discriminate based on race, color, gender identity, orientation, disability, religion, age, national origin, or any other status protected under federal, state, or local law. If you are a person of color, LGBTQ+, disabled, or belong to any protected class, we encourage you to apply. Our diversity strengthens our mission to produce global citizens.
Our organizational structure reflects reporting relationships only and not the many important collaborations that take place within and across departments to accomplish the RSU 21 mission.
Our HR vision is to be recognized as the school district of choice for staff. We seek to attract, develop, engage, and retain a workforce of contributing performers who are connected in purpose and core beliefs, collaborative in their efforts, and motivated to excel in delivering highest quality education to all students, all the time.

A look at our schools
What we do.
Our work in HR will be driven by our District’s mission statement, strategic plan, policy and law, and HR best practices. The following principles embody our district’s culture of student and staff excellence, guide our daily actions and define how we do business:
We are willing to challenge the way things have always been done. We create, innovate, and learn from our mistakes. We are open to new ways of thinking and doing in the service of RSU 21 students and staff.
We stay informed and ask questions. We create impact with our schools, educators and students through our actions. We respond with agility to the ever-changing needs.
We strive to ensure compliance with federal, state, and local laws, and RSU 21 policy in hiring, onboarding, supporting, developing, engaging, and retaining staff.
We use market data, data tools, systems and analytics to ensure we are market competitive and have equity and parity in our total compensation design and administration.
Equity is at the center of our work - for every student to succeed, HR supports the recruitment, development, engagement, and retention of the highest quality, diverse staff in all areas of the district.
We tell it like it is, in direct and straightforward language.
