At Rocketship Public Schools, we believe in the infinite possibility of human potential. We believe that every student deserves the right to dream, to discover, and to develop their unique potential. And it is our responsibility and our privilege to unleash the potential inside every Rocketeer we serve. Our non-profit network of public elementary charter schools propels student achievement, develops exceptional educators, and partners with parents who enable high-quality public schools to thrive in their community. We are a collective of parents, teachers, leaders, and students working together to transform the future for underserved communities across our country. At Rocketship Public Schools, we are unleashing potential.
Rocketship is opening a new region in Fort Worth, TX for the 2022-2023 school year. We are hiring outstanding Principal Fellows to join us in the Summer of 2021 in one of our regions (Bay Area, Milwaukee, Nashville, or DC) to support an existing school before starting planning work in Fort Worth in Summer of 2022. The Principal Fellows will partner with various Rocketship teams in Fort Worth in order to open the founding schools in Fall 2022.
Principals are the backbone of our school communities. They are charged with driving academic achievement and building a rigorous college preparatory culture. The Principal also serves as a cultural and community leader by building staff capacity in culture, behavior, and parent engagement.
We staff Rocketship campuses with a Principal, two Assistant Principals, a Business Operations Manager, and an Office Manager. Together, they lead a team of teachers, tutors, enrichment coordinators, and support staff who collectively deliver gap-closing, personalized instruction to students from pre-K to fifth grade.
Principals and APs provide instructional leadership by regularly observing classrooms, providing continuous feedback, co-planning units of study and lesson plans, and leading data analysis cycles. They share responsibility for professional development, culture and behavior in common spaces, and special events.
Rocketship attracts school leaders with ambitious aspirations. Just as we are committed to propelling student growth, we are dedicated to advancing the careers of our talented staff. As a Principal, you will receive ongoing professional development in conducting rigorous observations, providing meaningful feedback, and strategically planning based on analysis of results. Additionally, since Rocketship is a growing network, our school leaders can access a number of career paths within our Network Support Team.
Reports to the Director of Schools and direct reports include Assistant Principal(s), Business Operations Manager, Office Manger, teachers and special education staff.
