    Providence Public School District (PPSD) is currently collaborating with the RI Department of Education (RIDE) on an unprecedented turnaround effort to improve academic outcomes for all our students.

    We partner with the community, families, and students to develop in every learner the knowledge, skill, and character to excel in college, career, and life. Our responsibility is to ensure every child has great teachers and great school leaders. In the PPSD, we tailor instruction to meet the individual needs of every student.

    Providence public school teachers receive:

    • Compensation for advanced degrees, National Board certification, longevity and specialized certification areas.

    • Comprehensive medical, dental and vision insurance; prescription drug insurance, life insurance and retirement contributions.

    • Robust support program for teachers new to Providence as well as intensive professional development opportunities.


    Many roles help the Providence Public Schools support the learning of our students. We are committed to hiring highly qualified, dedicated and diverse employees to help educate our children.
