ABOUT LAUNCH

 

Launch EL Charter School is part of a network of 12 EL Education (formerly Expeditionary Learning) and NYC Outward Bound schools in New York City and is the NYC network’s first charter school. EL is a proven educational model being implemented in over 150 district, charter and independent schools across the country. Launch's mission is to prepare students in under-resourced communities to thrive in college and careers by providing a public education rooted in active learning experiences and powerful character development. We believe that students at all levels can be pushed and supported to do more than they think possible.

 

As an EL school, we believe that when a student is done with school and enters adult life, she will be judged for the rest of her life not by her performance on tests of basic skills, but by the quality of her work and the quality of her character. Our vision of student achievement therefore has three dimensions: Mastery of Academic Skills and Content, High-Quality Work, and Character.

 

Launch is seeking an IT Coordinator with a track record of success to join a highly motivated, curious, intelligent, and passionate staff under the EL Education model, an approach that believes in creating classrooms where learning is “challenging, active, meaningful, character driven, and public.”

 

The ideal candidate will model our Launch Operating Values:

 

Everything with Integrity – Always works to do what is best and right for our community.  Inspires confidence in others through consistent honesty and care.

 

Thoughtful and Intentional – All decisions are driven by what is best for kids and improving achievement.  Reflective and focused on continuous improvement and growth.

 

Clear Communication – Communicates directly and openly with all constituents. 

 

Leading with Urgency – Does whatever it takes to make things happen.  Acts proactively.

 

Relentless Optimism – Demonstrates an unyielding belief that we can accomplish our goals. Is solutions-oriented both in spoken and written communication.

 

Professionalism – Meets professional deadlines with high-quality work that pays attention to detail.  Follows through on all Launch procedures and policies.
