Wayzata Public Schools

Human Resources

We believe that academic success for every student is dependent on every district employee. As we work to hire and retain a qualified staff, our goal is to provide excellent client service and build a team of professionals who are passionate about the success of each student.

We provide opportunities for meaningful employment in a variety of positions, including educators, educational assistants (paraprofessionals), custodians, clerical, food service, principals and administrators.

Whether you are a prospective employee or you are currently a member of the Wayzata Public Schools’ community, we invite you to take advantage of the information and services provided.

Employee Benefits

We are proud to offer competitive benefits for our eligible staff. Employer-provided insurance benefits are an important component of the total compensation package.

The employee’s eligibility and the district’s contribution towards insurance benefits are determined by each collective bargaining unit’s agreement with the district. There is no eligibility waiting period to participate in district insurance plans.
