DCPS Employee Assistance Program

The District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) offers the Inova Employee Assistance (IEA) benefit for employees and their dependents. IEA is a free and confidential service available 24 hours per day/ 365 days of the year to DCPS employees and their immediate family members age 18 and older.

Personal and family problems can make life very difficult, and sometimes affect your ability to concentrate on the job. At such times, having someone who listens and is objective and concerned may be just the help you need to avoid a crisis. Inova Employee Assistance provides that support. Inova Employee Assistance counselors are trained, licensed professionals who can advise you on a wide range of problems — emotional illness, work life issues, relationship or family difficulties, alcohol or other drug abuse, legal or financial difficulties, major life or health changes. Inova also provides Legal and Financial Assistance, Child and Elder Care search services, ID Theft Protection and a wealth of other Daily Living Convenience Assistance Services at no charge to you.

For additional information on either EAP or work life services, please go to To access your dedicated DCPS Inova EAP site on this page, enter “DCPS” for the User Name and “DCPS” for the Password under the user login tab.

Inova Employee Assistance’s services are also private and confidential. So, when you talk to an Inova Employee Assistance counselor, you have security in knowing that information shared will be held in the strictest of confidence.

For additional information or assistance, contact Inova Employee Assistance directly — 24 hours a day at 1(800) 346-0110, and also access work life services via the Internet. IEA is available to answer your questions or schedule an appointment with you at your convenience.
