Department of Excellence, Equity, and Leadership
Department of Excellence, Equity, and Leadership (DEEL) in Pitt County Schools (PCS). DEEL is responsible to oversee the district’s R3 Initiative. The goal of R3 is to Recruit, Retain, and Reward effective educators to ensure the success of every child every day through professional learning, leadership development, and career advancement.
DEEL provides a bridge between the Department of Human Resources (HR) and the Department of Educational Programs and Services (EPS). HR and EPS are two departments that provide direction and support as students, teachers, and school administrators work toward the goal of providing excellent teaching and creating an environment ensuring students master the knowledge and skills for success in a rapidly changing world.
This site serves as a landing-page to link together the myriad departments and programs underneath DEEL, including Beginning Teacher Support, KeyBT program, Professional Learning Department, the Teacher Leadership Institute, and trainings for Cognitive CoachingSM, Adaptive Schools, and Situational Leadership. Additionally, this site will post regular updates regarding federal, state, and private funding, such as the federal Teacher Incentive Fund (TIF) grant and the state Teacher Compensation Model (TCM) grants.
DEEL is overseen by Dr. Seth Brown, the Director of Educator Support and Leadership Development, and Dr. Thomas Feller, the Director of Continuous Improvement & Professional Learning.
