Cherokee Central School's
Human Resources Department
The Human Resources department is responsible for the recruitment and employment of professional, certified, and classified employees, job classification, records management, and employee relations.
Staffing Cherokee Central School with the best employees possible is our primary goal. Students of the Eastern Band of Cherokee Indians deserve the best and we have the privilege and responsibility to accomplish this mission by employing candidates that share our goals and to build a strong community of learners while embracing the unique culture.
Our campus hosts three schools: Cherokee Elementary School, Cherokee Middle School, and Cherokee High School.
Cherokee Central School is mandated by the guidelines of Every Student Succeeds Act and the North Carolina Department of Public Instruction. All certified and para-professional employees must meet the criteria of "highly qualified" in their area of assignment.
