New Employee Orientation

What Is NEO?

A centralized welcome, organizational overview, hiring paperwork, health and retirement benefit orientation session for part-time hourly, full-time classified, and administrative exempt employees. The first two hours will consist of a welcome, introduction, organizational overview, hiring paperwork and a brief overview of the district departments. After that, part-time hourly employees will be released to report to their departments for department-specific training and their first day of work. All full-time classified and administrative exempt employees will then receive a health and retirement benefits briefing. Finally, classified employees will have 30 minutes at the end to hear from a WPEA union representative.

When?

New Employee Orientations (NEO) are held twice monthly at both campuses and occur on the first business day of each pay period with two sessions held at 9 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Note: Afternoon sessions are primarily reserved for employees who work in the afternoon.
