    Items to bring to the New Hire Appointment:

    1. Identification Documents - Please ensure that you have the acceptable identification documents necessary to complete the I-9 form at your new hire meeting. Failure to submit acceptable documents will delay the hiring process. 

    2. Official Transcripts - Official transcripts are required in personnel files. The District will accept electronic transcripts sent through a secure network directly to newhires@pisd.edu (i.e. eSCRIP-SAFE, Transcript Network, National Student Clearinghouse, etc.) or hardcopies of an official transcript from the college/university. Hardcopies must be hand delivered to the Human Resources Department. Once submitted to the District, transcripts are official government records and must be retained according to the District's retention schedule. Transcripts will not be returned.

    3. High School Diploma - Paraprofessionals and PASAR employees must provide us with a copy of their high school diploma or GED for their personnel file. A paraprofessional with a college degree will receive an extra $350.00 for a bachelor’s degree or $250.00 for an associate’s degree added to their annual salary after we have received an official transcript with the degree conferred.

    4. Service Records - If credit is given for experience, please request that your last Texas public school employer send your original service record to your mailing address. If your last employment was in an out-of-state school, or private school, you can send the service record request form to those schools. Private school experience will not be reflected in the salary quote until the private school service record has been received and reviewed by Employee Records. Original service records are required. Photocopies, emailed or faxed service records are not acceptable. You have sixty days from your first day of employment to provide us with your service record. If service records are not received within the allotted time, your salary will be adjusted accordingly.

    5. Social Security Card - Bring your original social security card or social security receipt for us to verify your name matches the name on your application for our payroll records.

    6. Your Best Smile - A picture will be made for your PISD identification badge
