Center Line Public Schools

The mission of Center Line Public Schools is to provide all students relevant and challenging learning experiences to inspire success and empower them to be the leaders of tomorrow.  This, in conjunction with the City of Center Line’s motto of “Small Town Lifestyle in the Heart of Metro Detroit”, allows a prospective employee to understand what our school district is all about.


On behalf of Center Line Public Schools (CLPS), the Human Resource Department would like to welcome you to our page.  We hope the following information will assist with your decision to join the CLPS family. If there is any information that you cannot find on this site, please reach out to us personally. The district number is (586) 510-2000 or you can find our direct contact information below.

CLPS is small for the metro Detroit area, serving around 2,800 students. This allows us the extraordinary ability to know all of our staff by name and to work with our staff to offer students opportunities they would not normally receive in a larger district. Here are some examples from the Academies of Center Line High School and Academy 21.

In addition to its size, another strength of CLPS is the diversity of its student population. The district is a direct reflection of the community it serves, and that community is rich in diversity. Because of this, our staff also has the opportunity to learn and grow from our students.

A major point of pride, is that we reward the hard work and dedication of our staff.  One example is that out of our 13 building level and central office administrators, 10 have been promoted from previous jobs within the district. In addition, our Food Service Director, Maintenance Executive, and Transportation Coordinator were promoted from within.  We are proud of the people who work with us.

Though we are proud of our staff, we continuously seek the absolute best candidates to fill every position. To accomplish that purpose, our Board of Education has given us the ability to offer an extremely competitive benefits package and our educators are among the highest paid in the state.

We hope, that after reviewing our site, you will decide that you are the type of exceptional individual who will thrive with us.  If you have made that decision, click below to apply:
