CORE Districts is a nonprofit organization dedicated to raising student achievement through collaboration among eight California school districts. Our work focuses on strengthening collective efficacy in school systems and improving outcomes for students, especially those students that have been traditionally underserved. CORE is at an exciting phase of development, and we are seeking improvement coaches to guide and support school and district teams using a disciplined and equity-centered approach for improvement. Improvement Coaches facilitate, coach, and teach improvement science methods to school and district teams and support their work to improve outcomes for all students.
Reporting to the Deputy Chiefs of Improvement, the Improvement Coach will work collaboratively with school-based improvement teams, district staff, CORE staff, and research partners. We are seeking a proactive learner who is passionate about CORE’s mission, has coaching and/or facilitation experience, knowledge of educational data and mathematics instruction and who will thrive in our dynamic startup environment. The Improvement Coach must effectively manage numerous responsibilities at a given time and be available for travel.
Key Skills and Dispositions
CORE will offer a competitive compensation package including base salary as well as health, 401(k), and vacation benefits.
CORE Districts is a collaboration of school districts working together to improve student achievement through highly productive, meaningful partnership and learning among member school districts. Currently, eight school districts serving more than 1 million students participate in the collaborative: Fresno, Garden Grove, Long Beach, Los Angeles, Oakland, Sacramento, San Francisco, and Santa Ana Unified. Together, our districts share a fundamental belief that all students can achieve at high levels and are deeply committed to providing learning opportunities that will help them to do so. Organizationally, CORE Districts is a 501c3 nonprofit serving as a hub for this collaboration and supporting partnership and shared learning at the superintendent, central office, school leader, and teacher levels.
CORE Districts’ long-term goal is for all California students to have strong support, effective programming, and an educational community standing together by their side so that they can achieve and succeed in college and career. We are working toward this goal by supporting and facilitating inter- and intra-district collaboration to innovate, implement, and scale successful strategies and tools that help students succeed.
