HISD to Host Career Workshops

2018 April 27
by HISD Communications

Dear Team HISD,

Our district has been through an extremely challenging year, and as you know, we face an estimated $115 million budget deficit for the 2018-2019 school year – a result of recapture and the potential decline of local property tax valuations after Hurricane Harvey.

In light of this deficit, the district will experience a reduction in force that will impact teachers, campus-based employees, and staff at the central office. Having a reduction in force is very difficult, particularly when you consider all we’ve experienced this year. I understand these are stressful and challenging times for everyone, and we are committed to providing assistance to ensure employees continue to be successful beyond HISD.

Human Resources will be hosting several career support workshops pertinent to impacted employees, focusing on benefits and leave balances, career marketing, resume writing, and interview best practices. More information on those workshops can be found here. Additionally, I urge anyone affected by the reduction in force to apply to other open positions in the district.

If you have any questions or concerns, please reach out to your immediate supervisor.



Dr. Grenita Lathan
HISD Interim Superintendent
