Launched in 2007, the Partnership is a nonprofit organization that serves 14,500 students across 19 LA Unified schools in Watts, Boyle Heights and South Los Angeles. The Partnership is one of the largest, in-district public school transformation organizations in the U.S., and is not a charter organization. Our priorities are supporting great school leadership, developing highly effective teaching, and engaging families and community partners. The Partnership works hard to close opportunity and achievement gaps in our 19 schools and in all LA Unified schools. We also advocate for educational equity and resource equity for high-need schools in Los Angeles and beyond. Over the past decade, our high schools have seen their graduation rate more than double from 36% to 80% and college acceptances have risen by 17 percentage points in the last four years from 32% in 2015 to 49% in 2019.

107TH STREET ELEMENTARY SCHOOL
The Partnership began working with 107th Street Elementary School in the fall of 2015. 107th Street serves about 900 students in ETK through 5th grade. Three-quarters of our students are Latino and one quarter are African American. 38% of our students are English Learners. Our campus is home to a K-5 STEAM Magnet, and across all programs, students are exposed to the arts, sciences, and social-emotional learning in addition to literacy and math. 107th Street’s students and families have access to many community partner organizations, including Children’s Institute, Communities in Schools, UCLA CARES Center, LA Clippers, Vision to Learn, Beyond the Bell, The Mission Continues, the Locke Wellness Center, and many others.
The Partnership for Los Angeles Schools seeks a highly effective, transformational urban school leader to drive continued growth and sustain a positive academic culture and safe climate for children and adults at 107th Street School. The principal will be responsible for ensuring that all students have the tools they need to be academically successful, that all members of the community (students, teachers, parents and guardians) have high expectations for student achievement and conduct, and that academic performance improves continuously for all students. The principal will be an experienced, committed, and entrepreneurial school leader who is excited by the challenge of school transformation and who has demonstrated success at dramatically improving student achievement at a high-needs school.
Below are the responsibilities and qualifications required of Partnership principals. The specific school community’s stakeholders, including school staff, parents, students, and partner organizations, will also provide their highest priority qualities and characteristics. These priorities will inform the hiring committee’s selection process.
The ideal principal candidate will demonstrate the following qualities and qualifications:
All minimum requirements must be met on or before the filing deadline. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that documentation of minimum requirements is on file with the LAUSD HR Administrative Selection Unit. For questions about submitting documentation, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
For all school based administrative positions, candidates must be in the appropriate LAUSD eligible pool for the position or currently serving in the class for which they are applying. In order to be placed in the eligible pool, candidates must successfully complete the appropriate LAUSD Aspiring Administrator Program. Qualified applicants not in an eligible pool from within or outside LAUSD may be considered if fewer than five applicants from the eligible pool apply for the position.
Total first year salary ranges from $115,483 to $144,069. Compensation comes from two sources: LAUSD provides the base salary (between $103,536 and $129,166 43G, E-Basis, 234 paid days) and the Partnership supplements the principal’s salary for working a year-round school calendar (equivalent to the A-Basis calendar of 260 paid days).
