Mission Statement

The mission for the Montebello Unified School District is to create a learning community focused on preparing all students to achieve personal and academic success in the future.

Our Employees

The Montebello Unified School District employs over 1,900 certificated staff members (teachers, counselors, psychologists, etc.) and over 1,500 classified employees. Classified employees provide accounting, clerical, instructional assistance, nutritional services, grounds keeping, custodial, maintenance, transportation, managerial, and other important services to the District.

Classified - Human Resources

The Montebello Unified School District is composed of 18 elementary schools, 6 intermediate schools, 3 high schools, 4 adult schools and 1 continuation high school. It serves a student population of more than 35,500 K-12 and 34,000 adult students and employs approximately 1,500 classified and 1,900 certificated employees. Geographically, the district is located about 10 miles east of Los Angeles and encompasses all of the Cities of Montebello and Bell Gardens and portions of the Cities of Monterey Park, Commerce, Pico Rivera , East Los Angeles and South San Gabriel.

The Merit System

The Montebello Unified School District is a Merit System employer for classified employees. A Merit System is a form of civil service which covers certain aspects of school district classified employment. The California Education Code mandates, in Merit Systems, the establishment of a public body of three lay persons, called a Personnel Commission, to oversee and control the selection, classification, retention, and promotion of classified employees as prescribed by law. Personnel Commissioners are appointed to three-year staggered terms of office. Each Commissioner is recommended to the State Superintendent of Schools by the Board of Education for appointment. The law provides for the Personnel Commission to appoint a Director in the field of personnel to guide them through the complexities of Merit System personnel rules and regulations. For a more in-depth look at the merit system, visit

Some of the areas which involve the Personnel Commission are: certification of employment eligibility lists, overseeing promotions, examinations (testing), classifying and reclassifying jobs, and adjudicating appeals of disciplinary actions or examinations.

The agenda is posted, in advance, at each district site, as well as on the display board at the entrance to the District Administration Office, at 123 South Montebello Boulevard, Montebello, CA 90640. Personnel Commission agendas and minutes may also be viewed from the link to the left of this page
