  • Our Vision

    • Our vision is to ensure there are effective educators in every classroom and every school, every day who prepare students for college, career, and beyond. We aim to attract, cultivate, deploy, develop, and retain the most effective talent that is reflective of the cultural and linguistic diversity of our students.

      The Office of Human Capital seeks to support the 10,000 employees at Boston Public Schools from the moment they apply for a job in our district until they retire. Our goal is to attract, develop, and retain a highly effective instructional team that is responsive to the diverse racial, cultural, and linguistic needs of our youth.

Who We Are

  • The Office of Human Capital (OHC) in the Boston Public Schools was established in June 2011 in order to lead the district’s work in defining and supporting effective teaching. We are a group of dedicated, diverse, and dynamic individuals who support our employees in every aspect of their work, both from central office and out in schools with leaders, teachers, and students. Our office is divided into the following teams:


What We Do

    • We continue to focus our efforts around three key human capital “levers”: Cultivate & Recruit, Hire & Deploy, and Develop & Retain. These levers are the center of our strategy for accelerating student learning as we believe it is our people who are driving the positive changes our district is making toward greater equity, coherence, and innovation.

      The Office of Human Capital is committed to recruiting, hiring, developing, and retaining a racially, ethnically, culturally, and linguistically diverse group of highly effective and culturally proficient teachers and principals every year.
