The role of the Director of School Programming and Partnerships is to advance DCF’s mission and to support the leadership and vision of its partners. The scope of this work involves the co-management of all school-based programs, partnerships, and grants to maximize the collective impact on student and school outcomes with school partners, and to seek opportunities to innovate toward student achievement and school transformation. This role will also ensure DCF is a supportive partner for all grantees by stewarding and monitoring the success of school grants and by providing solutions where challenges arise. As someone with expertise in urban education, schools, and school leadership, this person will serve as a “thought partner” to district, network, and school-based executive leadership and other educational nonprofits.
