As part of the district’s innovative urban school reform initiative to close achievement gaps and enable students to participate in a global economy, the district converted the Human Resources Department into the Office of Talent Management (OTM). The key approach of OTM to partner with each school’s Human Capital Manager – the Principal – to improve student learning by attracting, developing, and retain high-quality teaching talent.

The Office of Talent Management will ensure that each school is led by an effective leader and that each leader has the support to develop and retain highly qualified teachers — from recruitment to induction and ultimately through their career path development. We will employ effective, efficient, and collaborative processes and systems for staffing of qualified educational personnel; collection and communication of employee performance data; guidance and support with performance management; and recruitment, onboarding, and retention of talent.
