Our DPS - DPS Management

DPSManagement (DPSM) supports supervisors, managers, directors, executive directors, and assistant principals to hone their leadership skills, to influence and engage those they lead, facilitate change and develop a performance-based, team culture. Leaders will participate in core courses, including an Introduction to DPSManagement and Values Based Leadership, Implementing Continuous Improvement, Leading Equity in the DPS Mosaic and Building a High Performing Team. During these core courses, leaders will have an opportunity to interact with many of our Senior Leadership Team members.
