Chief Learning Officer, Reading and Math Corps
As Reading and Math Corps grow—and as other programs take deeper root–Reading & Math, Inc. (RMI) has a growing need for additional leadership capacity in strategic implementation of programming. Given RMI’s focus on implementing effective large-scale programs, particularly those with a focus on educational issues, leadership with both best-practices knowledge and extensive experience is necessary to ensure all aspects of implementation are maximized. Specifically, this position will direct and improve practices for several aspects of implementation, including: training (initial and ongoing), creating high-quality reference/support materials, strategic implementation of pilot and core programming, and coaching (i.e., ongoing support). Another essential role for this position will be the establishment of ongoing communication and partnership with AmeriCorps program administration at ServeMinnesota, which has a Research and Development team that provides all programs “Technical Assistance” in the area of (1) establishing/expanding evidence and (2) building/refining systems and technological solutions for data management.
The Chief Learning Officer (CLO) will have the overall responsibility for creating a vision, setting direction, and establishing a set of criteria to ensure that all aspects related to the implementation of educationally-related Reading & Math, Inc. programs are as effective and efficient as possible, with a particular emphasis Reading and Math Corps. Over time, the CLO will establish a team of fully qualified implementation managers who will team with the CLO to operationalize the initiatives designed to maximize Reading and Math Corps impact on learning.
Advanced degree in Educational Psychology, Elementary Education, Literacy or equivalent is required. A Ph.D. in a field that includes research and training related to Implementation Science in education is highly preferred. Given the technical requirements of this position it will be highly preferred to move someone into this position who has exceptional knowledge in best practices for implementation, and who has proven themselves to be successful in a practice-base coaching experience and developed strong leadership skills.
