Blueprint Fellowship 2013-2014Posted by: Blueprint Schools Network
Posted date: 2013-Jun-10
Blueprint Schools Network, Inc. (Blueprint) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to helping school districts close the achievement gap in their lowest-performing schools. Using a blueprint of comprehensive reform strategies, we partner with school districts to plan, implement, and monitor the progress of whole school turnaround with the goal of improving educational and life opportunities for students.
One of Blueprint’s most significant supports resides in the Blueprint Fellows Program, a comprehensive tutoring program that aims to accelerate student achievement in mathematics. For the 2013-14 school year we are seeking fellows for our schools in Denver, CO and in Eastern Massachusetts. Together, our fellows serve in more than 50 schools in these geographies.
For more information on our programs and to view our current openings, please visit http://blueprintschools.org.
The Blueprint Fellowship:
Fellows are an integral component of Blueprint’s turnaround strategy in general. Currently, we have Fellowship opportunities available in Denver CO, and in Eastern Massachusetts.
While the locations affect the daily responsibilities and inner-workings of each Fellowship program, there are overarching similarities and expectations for all our Blueprint Fellows.
Blueprint Fellows play an integral role in heightening student achievement in schools across the country. On a daily basis, Fellows build individualized lessons and plan activities that help to fill in academic gaps students may have to strengthen academic performance inside the classroom. During the course of the year, Fellows are building strong relationships that help to increase each student’s self-confidence in and commitment to his/her education, helping to foster a positive future for each student.
While teachers have classrooms of 25 or 30 students, Fellows manage no more than 4 students at a time. This allows for the individualization of remedial and supplemental instruction. Fellows are charged with focusing on the individual needs of their students, helping to bolster and accelerate student achievement while helping to close any skill gaps that may exist.
Fellows have a variety of responsibilities that allow them to be an integral piece of their student’s educational experience. Fellow responsibilities typically fall into one of the following categories: Instruction, Planning, Communication & Feedback, and Compliance. Examples of duties that Fellows have that fall into these categories include:
Communication & Feedback:
Being a Fellow is an intense but rewarding year-long experience. It’s important that each Blueprint Fellow understands the urgency and rigor needed to help each and every student succeed in school. The following is what we are looking for from each and every one of our Fellows.
Salary and Benefits
Blueprint Fellows are not employed by Blueprint Schools Network; they are the employees of their respective school districts. Thus, salaries will be slightly different by region. Salary ranges for the Program are $20,000-$21,000 with up to a $2,000-$5,000 attendance and performance bonus. Salaries and bonuses vary by district. Fellows will also receive benefits from their home district.
Interested candidates are encouraged to visit our website, http://blueprintschools.org to learn more about the program and access the application.
After submitting an application, candidates will be invited to take our online assessment which is due by the deadlines outlined on our website.
If you have any questions or trouble with the application, please send an e-mail to recruitingblueprintschools.org. Please include your name with an explanation of the issue you’re experiencing.
