Our Departments

A Strong Support System

Every great team needs a thorough support crew, working behind the scenes to provide services and programs in order to ensure success. Dayton Public Schools departments act as that supplemental arm, providing educational, administrative and operational support to district schools. The district’s administration building is located at 115 S. Ludlow St. in downtown Dayton, near the corner of Fifth and Ludlow streets. Free parking is located behind the building for visitors.
