Helping urban districts to become great managers of teacher and principal talent

The USHCA develops, supports, and networks human capital leaders in urban school districts to drive measurable improvement in teacher and principal quality.  Through a range of services, we help transform a district’s human capital management function into a more strategic and integrated component of a district’s overall approach to improve student achievement.

The Academy

We deliver a cross-district, dynamic learning experience for HR and human capital leadership teams in urban school districts to address mission-critical issues such as recruitment, retention, principal and teacher quality over a 3-year partnership.

Emerging Leaders

We are partnering with Education Pioneers and the Broad Center to launch a one-year human capital leadership program that prepares participants for urban system HC leadership roles.



We leverage our network of experts to provide targeted, in-depth services to support the implementation of human capital strategies, including HR assessments, benchmarking, coaching, process improvement and toolkit development.
