Our employees are the heart of Dayton Public Schools, keeping students at the center of every job, every day. More than 2,000 full- and part-time employees teach, counsel, mentor, nourish, and safeguard our students’ health and well-being. They maintain our schools and grounds, transport our children, oversee our safety, manage our offices, and greet our parent and community visitors. Recruiting and maintaining a high-quality faculty and staff is one of the district’s major goals. Those who exemplify a dedication to education and commitment to Dayton’s children are recognized annually through the district’s Employee of the Year program. The annual event gives employees and community members the opportunity to recognize others for their work on behalf of DPS students and families. Dayton Public Schools seeks nominations for Outstanding Employee Awards, which are presented at the Employee Appreciation Reception in May of each year, to one certified employee and one classified employee.
More than just a job
While our teaching population is aging, we find ourselves with a great opportunity to recruit and retain high-potential and high-performing teachers. Given the importance of teacher quality, Dayton Public Schools is focused on recruiting, selecting, and employing teachers who have the ability to be highly effective in the classroom. Current teaching demographics and changes in Ohio’s teacher retirement laws make it critical to ensure our children have the best learning environment now and in the future. Job vacancies for available positions with Dayton Public Schools are posted through the Dayton Area School Employment Consortium. In addition, the DPS Human Resources periodically hosts job fairs, including teacher and bus driver recruitment. Visit the department homepage for more information.
