Human Resources

While guided by a foundational belief in the value of promoting positive culture and climate, we keep our focus on leading with heart, integrity, and authenticity.  We believe that HR should be among the foremost keepers of that district culture, serving as the example for how all staff members should support each other and our students, and remaining ever focused on providing reliable services with empathy and respect for everyone in the LPS community.  The entire Human Resources Department is here for the entire LPS Family and happy to help in every way we can.

Director of Human Resources, Anthony Abbate

Anthony Abbate

Anthony Abbate grew up in Livonia and attended Cass, Holmes, and Stevenson before enrolling in the University of Michigan, where he earned a bachelor’s degree in Secondary Education and a master’s in Public Administration.  He taught 8th grade US History from 2003-2011 in South Lyon Community Schools, a community he still serves as a Trustee of the SLCS Board of Education.

Anthony returned home, professionally, to Livonia in 2011 when he was hired as the Assistant Principal of Frost Middle School, going on to serve as AP and then Principal of Frost from 2011-2021, an experience he considers to be among the greatest honors of his life.  He joined the LPS Cabinet team in January of 2021 when he was hired as the Director of Personnel & District Services, and he feels fortunate to work among a team of amazing professionals within the LPS Human Resources Department and across the many divisions of our Central Office.
