Welcome to the Human Resources Department for the Newport Independent School District.  The Human Resource department is committed to recruiting and retaining the best employees to serve our students and families.  Our office hires administrators (principals, directors, etc), certified employees (teachers, counslors, speech pathologists, etc) and classified employees (paraeducators, clerical staff, bus drivers, etc).  We also help our employees with certification requirements, new teacher internships, professional development opportunities, leave, and substitute options.
We encourage new applicants to explore employment opportunities by searching our current job postings .  Our application system is available online to apply for any position for which you may qualify.

Many forms are available to staff on this page under Documents.  One of the most informative documents is the Employee Handbook.  The purpose of this handbook is to acquaint you with general policies and procedures of the school district that govern and affect your employment and to outline the benefits available to you as an employee of the district.

Some policies refer to specific forms that are available in the Policy and Procedures manual. It is the employee’s responsibility to refer to the actual policies and/or procedures for further information. Policies and Procedures are convienently available through the KSBA internet address:
