  • Write reports that capture progress that can be shared with funders, school district leaders, and other policymakers.

Attributes of a successful candidate

  • A combined total of 7 years’ demonstrated success working with: elementary public schools to build school staff capacity to improve outcomes; and b) community-based initiatives (preferably locally led).
