Posted on: October 12, 2019

Job Description:

Company DescriptionUncommon Schools is a non-profit network of 54 outstanding public charter schools in grades K-12 across New York, New Jersey and Massachusetts. Our mission is to start and manage outstanding urban public charter schools that close the achievement gap and prepare students from low-income backgrounds for success in college and beyond. We are accomplishing that mission every day, with a college graduation rate that is well above the national average and thousands of stories of our students and alumni achieving their dreams.Job DescriptionTo build more high performing schools, we need future leaders to commit themselves to the most urgent and exciting work of our time! Running outstanding schools requires leaders who can inspire students, put excellence ahead of easy, and project urgency about providing our scholars with college access. Our leaders make decisions, conduct difficult conversations, and build highly collaborative teams, all while shaping a vibrant school culture. These individuals nurture learning communities that are simultaneously academically rigorous and joyful. They know that their job is the most important one in the world. Self-reflective and humble, they are open to feedback and committed to continuously improving.

Uncommon Schools is offering a fellowship to prepare fellows to open a new Uncommon school or sustain an existing school as Principal. The Principal Fellowship provides a robust development process to prepare leaders to lead a school in conjunction with the Director of Operations. This Fellow and eventual Principal is a full-time employee, hired, supported, and, evaluated by the Assistant Superintendent.

Leaders are born, sure. But those who become great leaders do so through hard work and deep learning. At Uncommon Schools, we make that learning possible through a fellowship that is based on a foundation of core elements aligned to the competencies of Uncommon leaders. Each element is designed to build Fellows' capacity towards becoming effective instructional school leaders:

Evaluation and Feedback:

Fellows receive mentorship and feedback from their Assistant Superintendent in addition to the school leaders they work closely with. Each Fellow will have an Individual Development Plan that identifies the specific areas of development for the Fellow around which the fellowship will be customized to ensure focused development opportunities.

Fellowship Deliverables:

Fellows will be placed at an existing Uncommon school to observe and learn in the environment of a successful school. While in this residency, the Fellow will be involved in teaching across subject and grade levels, observing and coaching teachers, and completing special projects for the school. In addition, Fellows will complete a variety of pre-determined deliverables.

Professional Development:

Fellows will engage in professional development focusing on two domains: Cultural Leadership and Management, and Instructional Leadership. Each session will be led by our experienced group of Assistant Superintendents, current leaders, and a select group of external partners. Examples of professional development sessions include Data-Driven Instruction, Observation and Feedback, Managing Teams and Groups, Family and Community Engagement, and Teacher Recruitment.Qualifications
