Meaningful Work, Caring Staff, and Innovative Technology are the distinguishing characteristics of the Perris Union High School District. Recruiting and retaining high quality, caring staff is a fundamental responsibility of the Human Resources Department. We are a small department, but we are mighty. We know that the people make our organization awesome. It has been said, “If you begin with the ‘who’, rather than the ‘what’, you can more easily adapt to a changing world.” HR is responsible for the “who” and we want our “who” to be awesome.    #BeAwesome
