Human Resources


Our mission in the Human Resource Services Department is to recruit, develop, and retain quality, high performing employees committed to fostering educational excellence. Our goal is to be recognized as a world-class organization that supports the recruitment and retention of employees that will enhance and support the district's vision for student achievement.


The primary purpose of this site is to expedite and enhance the quality of communication with approximately 253 certified and 152 classified employees of Calhoun City Schools (CCS), as well as individuals interested in employment with CCS. The site is designed to provide convenient access to a wide variety of frequently used information and materials, organized by major interest areas. If you are unable to locate information or materials important to you or you need other assistance, please let us know.  Thank you for visiting the CCS Human Resources webpage.  

Recruitment / Retention

Did you realize…

“Being a Georgia public educator puts you among the wealthier retirees in the United states.”

 That might be hard to believe…but it’s true.  And in the attached video, The Million Dollar Wagon, Dale Alexander proves this and highlights the one greatest advantage that many educators may not realize.

When a vacancy exists, HR consults with all principals, reviews letters of intent and makes a determination based on several factors on how to proceed.  All core teaching vacancies are posted.  When a teacher resigns or retires, an internal transfer may occur.  Some vacancies may not be filled after careful consideration of the program needs within the school and/or across the district.

The Calhoun City Board of Education will accept applications for all classified and certificated positions that are or may become available. Applications on file are considered current for a period of two years and will be considered as vacancies occur.  External and internal applicants may submit applications to the Board of Education using the online application process located on the Calhoun Schools website or a resume may be submitted to Dr. Michelle Palmer, Chief Human Resources Officer, via email.  Letters of intent and on the job performance for all present Calhoun City Schools' employees will be considered as vacancies occur.  If the employee wishes to amend their letter of intent, they may do so at any time.  Employees may also complete an online application for any position in the district on the Calhoun Website.
