New York City School District

District Partner 2004–2005

ERS partnered with the New York City School District (NYCSD) to inform the district’s efforts to rethink the role of Human Resources (HR) in supporting a comprehensive professional development (PD) system.

"ERS is the best in the country at saying, If you invest your resources this way, it correlates with this end result."
-Elizabeth Arons, Senior Human Resources Policy Advisor, New York City Department of Education

District Facts

80,000 teachers

Work Focus

Our work with NYCSD will focus on creating a resource map and analysis of the district’s HR spending and to conduct a strategic review of all HR activities.

Findings and Outcomes

ERS presented NYCSD with a complete picture of the costs, strengths, and weaknesses of the district’s current PD system that assessed the following factors:

  • Alignment of the district’s HR spending with research-based principles of effective PD.
  • Cost and efficacy of HR’s approaches to new teacher induction, mentoring, and performance management of teachers and principals.
  • Variances in the cost of new teacher induction for teachers who enter the profession through different routes.
  • Cost of awarding teacher salary increments for gaining course credits.
  • ERS’ work enabled NYCSD to identify ways to make its PD more strategic and resulted in a blueprint of HR’ role that spans hiring, induction, support, and incentives for career growth.
