Revamping How a School System Hires, Places, and Supports Teachers and Educators

By Jaclyn Borowski & Michele Molnar — March 3, 2020 3:20

When Gonzalo La Cava was hired as the chief of human resources in the School District of Palm Beach County, Fla., the department was slow to respond to the needs of schools—if it did so at all. La Cava overhauled how the department interacted with teachers and principals, ensuring that human resources not only thought strategically about growing a pipeline of teachers from diverse backgrounds, but also set up critical supports for teachers. Among them, teachers now receive coaching and mentoring during their early years on the job. March 4, 2020
