Great things are happening in Battle Creek Public Schools (BCPS), and this is your opportunity to be a part of it! Located in southwestern Michigan, Battle Creek Public Schools serve a diverse community of 4,000 students from Pre-K to adult education.

We are a mission-driven district seeking passionate and motivated leaders who are ready to be a part of transformational change that is already underway.
In 2017, BCPS received a $51 million grant from the W.K. Kellogg Foundation, which, over the five years of the grant period, is being invested to revitalize curriculum, implement project-based and experiential learning models, implement new professional development and mentorship programs for staff, bring onboard new programmatic partners, and open/transform schools with specialized magnet programming.
BCPS teachers benefit from a supportive community of educators that “Believe in the Change.” A host of new investments in schools, and robust professional development programs are provided to teachers. In addition to competitive base salaries, our educators enjoy a total rewards program that includes a generous healthcare and retirement plan, an Employee Assistance Program, Tuition Reimbursement, Sign- on and Retention Incentives, Housing and Rental Incentives and more. Our total rewards program also offers impactful professional development to support our continuous learners and a support network of teachers, administrators and staff who are laser focused on supporting each other to achieve student success.
