Current SchoolWorks Opportunities
Senior Strategist, Office of Effective Partnerships and Impact
SchoolWorks partners with The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) to provide a range of supports to schools and districts, including through this position.
The Center for School and District Partnership (CSDP) is pleased to offer a variety of professional learning opportunities to support school and district improvement efforts in the 2023-2024 school year. Each of these opportunities advances educational equity. They are organized around the three categories below, although some offerings may address more than one priority.
- Whole Child Supports: Cultivate systems to support that whole child and foster joyful, healthy, and supportive learning environments so that all students feel valued and connected.
- Grade-Appropriate Instruction: Promote deeper learning so that all students engage in grade-level work that is real-world, relevant, and interactive.
- Diverse and Well-Prepared Workforce: Develop and sustain a diverse, culturally responsive, and well-prepared workforce so that all students have equitable access to effective educators.
The Senior Strategist works within the Office of Effective Partnerships and Impact (OEPI). This office designs and delivers statewide supports in the form of professional learning opportunities, tools and resources, grants, progress monitoring and evaluation, direct assistance and coaching, and partnerships. These supports are designed to target the systems and structures that can lead to more equitable opportunities and outcomes for students. The OEPI team is part of the Center for School and District Partnership (CSDP), which developed and uses the Coherence Guidebook as a framework for school improvement and ensures multiple offices at DESE work together to support school progress.
The Senior Strategist will be part of a dynamic team focused on identifying common school and district needs and developing resources and supports to address them. This could include priorities such as, but not limited to: culturally responsive leadership teams and practices; innovative staffing, scheduling, and resource allocation strategies; effective instructional leadership routines, rituals, and systems; and multi-tiered systems of academic, behavioral, social-emotional, and mental health support. In addition, the Senior Strategist will support key pieces of infrastructure for the OEPI, playing a key role in creating and operationalizing systems that promote strong coherence and collaboration across the team’s initiatives and partners.
