Build a 21st Century School District at DCPS
Start Your Application

We want visionaries. Data whizzes. Operations pros. Program Designers. Put your passion to work transforming DC Public Schools.

JOIN A TEAM THAT IS CHANGING THE GAME FOR KIDS. Behind every great teacher and school leader there’s a great team. We come to work every day inspired by our challenge: to build a district that sets a new standard for urban education and provides a model for the nation.

USE YOUR EXPERTISE TO IMPROVE STUDENTS' LIVES. We’re looking for keen minds and big ideas. Our diverse backgrounds – from teaching to policy to technology – encourage innovation and advance bold action. Our only pre-requisite is a belief in the power of public schools and a refusal to be satisfied with the status quo.

DO YOUR BEST WORK IN AN INSPIRING ENVIRONMENT. Our bright, LEED-certified downtown offices are buzzing with the innovation of a startup, the energy of a classroom, and the passion of a campaign. We enjoy each other and we love what we do. You’ve never worked in a place like this.

“To be a change agent you have to be willing to break the mold, be bold in your approach and embrace accountability. DCPS is changing the way education does business. We employ a creative workforce to harness the full potential of our students and community.”

–Nekosi Nelson, Manager, Quality and Process Improvement
