Declaration of Intent

DCPS offers the DINR process because it helps to identify vacancies early. This information enables us to plan for the staffing season effectively and ensures that our students begin the year with fully staffed schools.

The DINR application is available to employees in the Washington Teachers’ Union (WTU), as well as school leaders (Principals and Assistant Principals) in the Council of School Officers union.

As you consider participating in the 2019 DINR application process, use this website for answers to Frequently Asked Questions and process dates at the bottom of this page. Additional information regarding the DINR may be found on page 99 of the Washington Teachers' Union Collective Bargaining Agreement and page 24 of the Council of School Officers Collective Bargaining Agreement.

If you have any additional questions regarding this process, please contact HR Answers at [email protected] or (202) 442-4090.
