Elementary School Assistant Principal 2019-20

Company: Rocketship Public Schools
Location: Redwood City
Posted on: January 15, 2019

Job Description:

Rocketship Public Schools is a network of elementary schools serving primarily socioeconomically disadvantaged students so that we can meet our mission of eliminating the achievement gap in our lifetimes. We are hiring outstanding Assistant Principals in the Bay Area, Nashville, Milwaukee, and Washington, D.C. for the 2019-2020 school year.
At Rocketship Public Schools, we believe in the infinite possibility of human potential. We believe that every student deserves the right to dream, to discover, and to develop their unique potential. And it is our responsibility and our privilege to unleash the potential inside every Rocketeer we serve. Our non-profit network of public elementary charter schools propels student achievement, develops exceptional educators, and partners with parents who enable high-quality public schools to thrive in their community.
Our teachers, school leaders, and network support staff are united in our mission to eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime. School leaders are the backbone of Rocketship's impact model.
Assistant Principals (APs) at Rocketship are charged with driving academic achievement for students and building a rigorous college preparatory school culture. Every AP at Rocketship works closely with their Principal to lead and implement the instructional vision for one to three grade levels. APs manage and coach teachers in their grade levels by leading data analysis cycles, regularly observing classrooms, providing continuous feedback, and co-planning units of study and lesson plans aimed at increasing educator effectiveness and leadership. APs also serve as cultural and community leaders by building teacher capacity in culture, behavior, and parent engagement.
Rocketship campuses are supported by a school leadership team that includes the Principal, two Assistant Principals, a Business Operations Manager, and an Office Manager. APs share responsibility across the school leadership team for professional development, culture and behavior in common spaces, and special events. Together, they lead a team of teachers, tutors, enrichment coordinators, and support staff who collectively deliver gap-closing, personalized instruction to students from pre-K to fifth grade.
Rocketship attracts school leaders with ambitious aspirations. Just as we are committing to propelling student growth we are dedicated to advancing the careers of our exceptional talent. As an AP, you will receive ongoing professional development in conducting rigorous observations, providing meaningful feedback, and executing useful planning and analysis.
