Have you ever wanted to make an impact on mid-size school districts across the state to improve outcomes for kids who need the most help? Are you interested in designing learning experiences for adults that provide equitable opportunities for underserved students? Are you interested in innovating approaches to best support districts through critical change?
The Ed Partners’ Program Manager serves as a systems improvement consultant for districts. We closely support districts in getting students, from our youngest learners to those entering high school, “on track” to graduate with options and opportunities for college and career. These districts are creating sustainable systems and promising practices that serve as proof points of what is possible in the state.
Ed Partners has worked with more than 85 districts over the last 12 years impacting over 1.5 million students in California. Our staff members have worked at every level of school systems and know how to partner with administrators, principals, and teachers to remove barriers standing in the way of our students. Our goal is to help districts build sustainable improvement by working closely with them to build their own capacity to deliver better results for their students.
Ed Partners has office spaces in San Francisco, Oakland, Central Valley, and Los Angeles. This position will work in a hybrid work environment that includes generous meal, travel, and lodging compensation to support districts and to collaborate in person with colleagues at one of our office locations.
