Please take a moment to read last week's
regarding new guidelines limiting purchasing and hiring.
As a reminder, DPS implemented
a non-school-based personnel hiring freeze for all vacant positions
to manage resources and costs. School-level (i.e., principal, teacher, para and SSP) hiring for the 2020-21 school year may continue.
Also, new purchase orders and supplier contracts will only be allowed for essential services and supports; supplier payment for goods and services already received; or for other items that have been approved by the Deputy Superintendent for Operations.
for more details and FAQs on these new guidelines.
