New Employee Pre-Employment Orientation

  • Welcome to the Wake County Public School System. 

    As a new employee with our school system, you are required to attend a New Employee Pre-Employment Orientation before you can begin work.  This is a multi-step process.  You will watch a series of videos on your own time and then come in for a scheduled in-person session.  During this in-person session we will complete required forms, review licensure, payroll and benefits information.  Human Resources will communicate with you by telephone and email details regarding this process. 

    In the event that schools are closed or delayed due to inclement weather, New Employee Pre-Employment Orientation will follow the same schedule.  (Example:  If the WCPSS is on a two-hour hour delay, your orientation will start two hours later than the scheduled time).  Human Resources will communicate with you any changes using the email address in your online application.


    Pre-Employment Orientation Location/Time

    Human Resources will communicate with you the location and time when you are scheduled for the in-person session.  The in-person session lasts approximately 3 hours.


    What to Bring

    You will need to bring with you documents to verify your identity for the I-9 form.  See this list of acceptable documents for the I-9 form.  Please note you will need either one document from list A or a document from both list B and C.
