Kyrene Orientation for New Educators (ONE)
Kyrene ONE onboarding allows all new to Kyrene employees to become familiar with the Kyrene School District organization as well as job responsibilities, curriculum and individual school culture so certified staff are positioned for success. All certified employees new to the district, first-time or experienced professionals, are contractually required to attend four days of ONE. There are many district departments coordinating to make the onboarding experience as smooth of a process as possible. To view personalized schedules, go to 2020 Orientation for New Educators Schedules.

Because ONE will happen after new certified staff report to schools, we strongly encourage new teachers to schedule a time to pick up a district laptop before July 23. Appointments can be made calling 480-541-1215 Monday - Thursday from 8:00 Am - 4:30 PM. When you arrive at the district office for your appointment, call 480-541-1215 and an IT technician will greet you to let you in the building.
