Welcome to Human Resources
In the Woodland School District, we believe that one of our greatest assets is our people. We also believe that every one of our staff share the opportunity to help children learn and grow.
Our business is education, and we recruit and help develop the full capacity of a talented, motivated and diverse workforce, to educate and provide support for all students of Woodland Public Schools.
If you have questions about a career in Woodland Public Schools please contact Vicky Barnes, Human Resource Manager, at 360-841-2700.
Woodland... the best of both worlds
Love the outdoors?
Woodland is perfectly situated. Located near the confluence of the Lewis and Columbia rivers, it is considered an angler’s paradise, and is home to two world-class fishing rod manufacturers. It is common to see boys and girls (and the occasional adult) riding a bicycle through town, carrying a fishing pole in hopes of landing a fresh salmon or steelhead. Surrounded by great hiking, biking and exploring opportunities—as well as hosting tulip and lilac festivals—Woodland is a destination spot for outdoor enthusiasts from around the world.
Love the city life?
Although largely rural, Woodland is just a half-hour from downtown Portland, Oregon, one of the most vibrant and fun cities in America. Portland hosts an active arts and culture scene begging to be explored. Where else can you find a bacon-maple bar, balsamic pear ice cream, and a microbrewery all on the same block?
At Woodland Public Schools, we are “Educating for Excellence.” Our goal is to hire, develop, and retain the highest-quality educators for the children of the communities we serve.
Woodland’s schools are recognized for quality. In the past seven years Woodland Schools have received six “School of Distinction” awards and an “Apple Award”—all related to our students’ high levels of academic performance.
Woodland Public Schools’ 2,250 students learn in our five traditional brick-and-mortar schools and two alternative schools. We also host a special education program for 18- to 21-year-old transitional students.
Woodland High School will graduate its 108th class of seniors in spring 2016. This will be the first class to graduate from the new high school campus. Opened in autumn 2015, our new high school features a brand-new, state-of-the-art, 152,000-square-foot high school campus. Its opening led to a multi-school reconfiguration that opened up space for current and future students.
Woodland Middle School doubled in size in the 2015-16 school year! Expanding into the old High School in autumn 2015, the Middle School now serves more than 600 students in grades 5-8.
Woodland Intermediate School serves grades 2-4 on its campus located on the east side of Woodland. WIS earned Washington Achievement Awards for 2012, 2013 and 2014, and was recognized as a School of Distinction in 2007 and 2008.
Woodland Primary School serves preschool through first grade featuring small class size.
Yale School is a state-designated “Remote and Necessary School” located east of Woodland at the foot of Mt. St. Helens. Yale serves children in grades K-5.
Lewis River Academy is Woodland’s newest school and a program for K-12 students who receive the bulk of their instruction at home with parents who are highly engaged in their children’s education. Learning materials are both print and electronic.
TEAM High School serves students in grades 9-12 who, for various reasons, find success in traditional high school challenging. TEAM’s educational program is highly individualized with lots of one-on-one support that helps learners find success and graduate.

work skills that will help them successfully transition into adulthood.
