New Employment Application System

Detroit Public Schools will launch a new and improved Employment Application System on April 7, 2014. Effective Friday, March 28, 2014, the district’s current on-line Employment Application System is suspended for a system upgrade. The blackout period will extend from March 28–April 6, 2014.

The Human Resources Department will not post any new positions, and the old application system will not be available to accept any new applications after March 28. Effective Monday, April 7, the new and improved on-line Employment Application System will be accessible for applicants to review job announcements and apply for employment with DPS.

The Human Resources Department will contact all applicants who applied under the old system prior to March 28, and who are still waiting for a decision on their applications, to alert them of the changes. Internal and external applicants will not experience any major changes on the application page.

For more details, call (313) 873-6897.


Looking for a Career with DPS?

If you are interested in employment with the Detroit Public Schools, please review our current/future job openings. Be sure to review the method of application required for each specific job announcement and forward your letter of interest, resume and other documents only to the location indicated on the job announcement. Forwarding your information to any other location and/or individuals may result in the applicant's information being delayed or lost thereby missing job closing deadlines.

Due to the large volume of responses received for positions that are advertised on our web-site, we regret we are unable to accept or respond to resumes for positions that are not posted. Therefore we ask that you only apply and forward your resume for specific posted positions.

Other Employment Programs and Information



The District uses the SubFinder system for the recording of all absences and the dispatching of all substitute teachers. It is important that all instructional and non-instructional staff members confirm that their contact information is current in Peoplesoft, as SubFinder receives its information from that system.
