Talent Development

Durham Public Schools strives to ensure that the organization attracts, retains, motivates and develops talented people. To accomplish this, it is essential that several talent management processes are in place and implemented on a strategic level. Such processes/strategies include talent identification, recruitment and assessment, competency management, performance management, career development, learning management, compensation, and succession planning.

The overall goal is to ensure that employees are offered a number of benefits. These include but are not limited to: employee engagement, retention, increased productivity, future leadership opportunities within the organization, and ultimately, a culture of excellence through extraordinary leadership for all employees.

With these in place, DPS will become a district of high-achieving students as a direct result of the efforts of highly-motivated staff who have a genuinely vested interest in student success and the sustainable growth of the district.
