Attention New Hires

If you have prior work experience, the Human Resource Department needs verification from your previous district(s) in order for you to have your salary adjusted.  The following process must be followed:

1)  Complete and sign a Verification of Professional Experience Form at Human Resources.  You must have the name and address of the previous district(s), phone number, fax number, and contact person’s information in order to complete the form.

2)  Trenton’s Human Resources Department will mail the Verification of Professional Experience Form to your old district(s).

3)  Your old district(s) complete, notarize and mail the Verification of Professional Experience Form back Pam Owens at the Trenton Public School’s Human Resource Department.

4)  Once received, the completed form will be reviewed in HR and you will be placed on the Board Agenda for approval of credit for previous work experience.

It is important that you do this as soon as possible, so that you will be retro’d back to your date of hire.
