All students will graduate with the skills necessary to read, write, compute and communicate effectively; think critically and creatively; work independently and collaboratively with others from diverse backgrounds; and engage in innovative interdisciplinary and complex problem solving.

Our Welcome Center

The Welcome Center is a one-stop shop for families where people walk out feeling much better– more enriched, informed, and better prepared than when they walked in.  Our Superintendent, Dr. Leslie Torres-Rodriguez, has dreams and targets for our children. The education of each child is so important, and we know that reaching these targets and achieving these dreams are dependent upon family engagement.  The Welcome Center is here to support you in the day-to-day living of your family, to help you assess your needs, and to answer your questions.  Let us help you be a strong and full partner in your child’s education.

Our Diversity, Equity & Inclusion

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, induction, and retention of new talent.

District Model for Excellence

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 & Labor Relations (OTM-LR).  The key approach of OTM-LR is 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 & Labor Relations 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.
