Description

Job Description of Executive Director

Reporting to the Board of Directors, the Executive Director (ED) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for Parent Teacher Home Visits’ staff, programs, expansion, and execution of its mission.

Parent Teacher Home Visits (PTHV) increases student and school success by building and sustaining a national network of partners who effectively implement and advance our relationship-based home-visit model of family and teacher engagement in public schools across the United States. PTHV is a national nonprofit that helps teachers and parents build trust via our unique model of relationship-building home visits. This trust translates into strong parent-teacher partnerships and better school attendance and improved academic outcomes for children. These outcomes are backed by research and by the personal experiences of thousands of parents, teachers, and students. Our grassroots network has grown rapidly, with more than 700 school communities in 29 states, Washington, DC, and Saskatchewan, Canada, using our evidence-based model of student, family, and teacher engagement. With this track record, PTHV is poised to scale its work nationally, deepen the support and resources it provides to schools and school districts, and shape the broader field of family and community engagement in schools. Central to this future is a commitment to equitable educational outcomes for all learners.

To build and sustain a democratic society, we need free, quality public education for all, which can only be achieved when educators and families collaborate together as equal, trusting partners. The academic, social, and emotional development of all our students depends upon meaningful relational connections that are as important as any system or program. The PTHV model of home visits is a cost-effective and proven catalyst for student achievement, family engagement, teacher development, and school success. The PTHV Executive Director will serve as the public face and the keeper of the mission, vision, and values of the organization, navigating multiple partnerships (especially union partners, community-based organizations, schools, and districts) amidst changing landscapes. 

Candidates must be committed to social justice, racial equity, and working toward improving educational systems that achieve these ends.
