Overview

 

About Blueprint Schools Network (“Blueprint”)

 

Blueprint’s mission is to promote educational equity and improve life outcomes for students by partnering with states, districts, and schools to plan, implement, and monitor school improvement initiatives. Blueprint was founded to bring our research-based strategies shown to be the biggest drivers of student achievement in successful, high-performing schools to life in public schools across the nation. These strategies include: 

 

  1. Ensuring every student has an excellent teacher and a school leader committed to their success;
  2. Increasing instructional time;
  3. Setting clear, consistent standards for academic achievement and establishing a school-wide focus on preparing all students for college;
  4. Collecting assessment data frequently to monitor each student’s academic progress and tailoring instruction to meet the needs of all learners; and
  5. Providing daily, small group tutoring to students using highly qualified and well-trained instructors.

Our work with schools across the country has shown that positive change is possible when these five core strategies for school improvement are implemented together as a comprehensive package. Our culture is defined by talented and mission-driven people working together to accomplish great things. We value students’ first, integrity, sustainable results, diversity, collaboration and humility.   

 

About the Blueprint Math Fellows Program

 

The Blueprint Math Fellows Program is a daily tutoring program designed to accelerate achievement by providing individualized, standards-based academic support as part of the school day. The Math Fellows Program has been operated as an independent academic intervention and also as an integral component of whole school turnaround initiatives.

 

Blueprint selects, trains, and supports a corps of Math Fellows who are led by a Site Manager. Math Fellows work full-time in schools throughout the year, leading 5-7 highly structured tutorial sessions daily in small groups of no more than four students per Fellow. This structure allows Fellows to personalize instruction, addressing each student’s needs while challenging them to access and exceed grade-level content.

 

Fellows coordinate closely with teachers to ensure that tutoring supports classroom instruction; they also communicate with families about students' progress, strengths, and areas for growth. Authentic relationships between Fellows and students help change students' self-perception and relationship to math. The Math Fellows Program is distinguished by its integration into the school day and its student-centered approach helping to build a culture of high expectations and fostering long-term success.


The Opportunity


Blueprint is looking for a Site Manager in Holyoke, Massachusetts to (1) support Math Fellows through coaching and development and (2) provide solutions for daily management issues involving Fellow-Student relationships, Fellow-Fellow relationships, and Fellow-Staff relationships.  As a Site Manager, you will have the opportunity to apply your experience as an Educator to promote educational equity and improve life outcomes for all students. Site Managers are supported by Blueprint’s national cohort of Site Managers and the Blueprint National Team.

About LCSD

 

The Lake County School District (LCSD) believes that every student deserves equitable access to a high-quality, well-rounded education that prepares them for a successful future.

 

LCSD is located in Leadville, Colorado, the highest incorporated city in North America. Recreation opportunities abound in nearby mountains, and the urban advantages Denver has to offer are only 2 hours away. Leadville has a long history as a mining community, but mining has decreased drastically. Now many members of the community travel over mountain passes to work in the service and construction industries in neighboring resort communities. Many of our parents work long hours and have time-consuming commutes to work. They leave their children in our care and entrust us to provide a valuable academic experience in a nurturing, safe environment. 

 

There are four schools in LCSD. The Center houses our preschool program where three and four-year olds are supported by Head Start, the Colorado Preschool Program and tuition-based programming.  West Park Elementary houses our kindergarten through 2nd grades. Third through 6th grade students attend Lake County Intermediate School and, right across the street, Lake County High School houses our 7th-12th grade students.

 

Just less than seventy percent of the roughly 1,000 LCSD students qualify for free or reduced lunch. One out of three students speaks English as a second language. Approximately seventy percent of our families self-identify as Hispanic and most of the remaining families identify as white. 

 

Five years ago LCSD was a turnaround district. At that time, we collaborated with our community to understand their hopes and dreams for the schools and embarked upon a number of strategic initiatives. We are proud of the successes we have accomplished to date. In August 2017 the Colorado Department of Education released preliminary school and district performance frameworks. As a result of the strong academic growth we are seeing, Lake County Intermediate School and Lake County High School both earned ratings of “Performance,” which is the highest rating a school can receive. The district received a rating of “Accredited,” the second highest rating a district can receive (one level below Accredited with Distinction). Despite these ratings, district and school leadership recognize that our work is not complete. Our focus remains and has intensified on increasing the number of students who are meeting or exceeding the expectations set by the standards.

As we step back and reflect on where we have been and where we have yet to go, we have learned that our successes are not consistent from school to school or even from year to year in part because the successes are often transactional in nature. That is, they rely heavily on the initiative of individuals and have not yet been institutionalized. The LCSD Partnership Collaborative is designed to maximize our return on investment in partnerships. We aim to achieve this by focusing on the following strategies:

  1. Refine and codify student-centered K-12 instructional systems that promote equity;
  2. Align multiple organizations, schools and leaders to support instructional systems and vision;
  3. Monitor school progress throughout the year to inform the effectiveness of our practices;
  4. Review interim assessment and school visit data to facilitate mid-course corrections when needed; and
  5. Create a system for identifying and disseminating best practices

We believe that this initiative will leverage our ongoing school turnaround efforts and better position LCSD to dramatically increase student achievement across our Pre-K-12 network for the next three years. 

 

Director of Strategic Collaboration Job Description     

 

This is a grant-funded position (Winter 2017-Spring 2020) providing research, writing, organization and analysis support for systems- and capacity-building in LCSD.  The position will support the LCSD District Partnership Collaborative, an initiative funded by the James Walton Fund and the Gates Family Foundation to (1) continue the turnaround of schools in the Lake County School District and (2) create and share a model pathway for rural school turnaround. 

 

Compensation: $70-80K annually, depending on experience
