Position Title: School-Based Parent Organizer
Who are we?
After successfully building a school turnaround model in Detroit, Newark and Washington D.C., Matchbook Learning, a non-profit charter management organization, recently moved our team to Indianapolis, Indiana, to launch a single PreK-8 Innovation Charter School in partnership with the Mayor’s Office and Indianapolis Public Schools (IPS). We have been granted a charter to restart and turn around a low performing IPS school beginning summer 2018. Our innovative, award winning blended turnaround school model, the first of its kind in the nation to be offered to schools with the highest poverty rates and needs, has already achieved extraordinary results. Now, we are excited to develop a scalable model for inner city public education in Indianapolis.
Who are we looking for?
We are looking for a school-based parent organizer will work to build and develop parent leaders within our school to mobilize in support of our school, as advocates for our students, and to help our parents demonstrate their demand for all of our students to receive a high-quality education. In addition to mobilizing parents, the organizer will also build relationships with community partners to connect parents to resources and opportunities in order to address our community’s needs. The organizer will be expected to develop and execute a comprehensive yearly parent engagement plan, which will meet the metrics outlined in the parent organizing grant agreement. The work of the parent organizer will strengthen and support the school culture by ensuring that parents are critical partners in the school’s success. Success in this position will mean that parents at the school are engaged and develop as parent leaders and advocates for the school and the community’s needs.
