Leadership Consultants, Massachusetts
The Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education’s (DESE) Statewide System of Support (SSoS) provides assistance to districts with one or more schools categorized as requiring focused or targeted assistance, as defined by the Massachusetts Accountability System. Two Regional Assistance Teams serve the West/Central and Coastal areas of the state to support identified schools and districts. These teams provide targeted assistance through a distinct SSoS Model that:
a) Supports districts to identify clear priorities anchored in culturally responsive grade appropriate instruction and sense of belonging;
b) Targets support in service of those priorities with a particular focus on supporting school and district instructional leadership teams, and the adoption and implementation of high-quality instructional materials; and
c) Coaches for Equity in order to operationalize equity and racial equity in schools and districts in the Commonwealth identified by the accountability system as requiring assistance.
The work of SSoS is grounded in DESE’s Educational Vision for supporting Culturally and Linguistically Sustaining Practices.
The SSoS Leadership Consultant is responsible for providing targeted assistance to a caseload of roughly 3-5 districts (caseloads can evolve based on the total number of districts SSoS serves annually) based on the region assigned. The Leadership Consultant should model the following competencies: student-centeredness, equity- and racial-equity focused, outcomes and results-oriented, ability to communicate and relate along lines of difference, and willingness to be a continuous learner.
Applicants must be willing to relocate to Massachusetts, or an area within reasonable driving distance of the districts served by the Regional Assistance Teams. To apply, please fill out the application below and upload all required documents.
