New Hire Resources

Welcome to Byron Union School District! On behalf of the entire district team, I am delighted to extend our warmest welcome and congratulations on joining our educational family. We are thrilled to have you on board and look forward to working together to provide a nurturing and excellent learning environment for our students.

The onboarding process is initiated once a signed offer of employment is received by the district. While we strive to onboard new employees as quickly as possible, the onboarding process takes approximately 10-14 days to complete.

Kind Regards,
