The Community Center for Education Results (CCER), which supports the Road Map Project initiative, is recruiting for a Local Improvement Networks (LIN) Partnership Coordinator with a successful track record of managing dynamic projects. The LIN Partnership Coordinator will join a small collaborative team in a fast-paced environment and will provide direct support to CCER’s Local Improvement Networks Director. Through this work, this position will support the execution of the Local Improvement Networks’ top priorities and contribute to the effectiveness of the Local Improvement Networks team. This is a great opportunity for someone who enjoys problem solving, working in an administrative capacity, and being a member of a busy team tackling complex work. The LIN Partnership Coordinator will report to the Local Improvement Networks Director while working closely with the broader CCER team and Road Map Project partners.

The Local Improvement Networks model is a new area of work that aims to accelerate progress in the Road Map Project region by providing opportunities for the delivery of best practices and the building of more equitable systems. Local Improvement Networks bring together districts, schools and community service providers to improve early learning and elementary outcomes for low-income students and children of color. The work is focused on achieving two joint outcomes: increasing success for young people in math and social and emotional learning and increasing capacity for parents, educators, and program providers to help young people. The first Local Improvement Network pilot is underway in the Renton Innovation Zone with a second pilot site launching fall 2019.
