New York City Department of Education

District Partner 2004–2005

ERS partnered with the New York City Department of Education (NYCDOE) 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, former Senior Human Resources Policy Advisor,
New York City Department of Education

Work Focus

2004-2005:

  • Resource Mapping/ Human Resources: Create a resource map and analysis of the district’s HR spending and conduct a strategic review of all HR activities

Findings and Outcomes

ERS presented NYCDOE 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 NYCDOE 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.
