Into PBL? Then this edujob might be just for you:
The Buck Institute for Education (BIE), a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization headquartered in Northern California, is the industry leader in providing professional development and support services related to Project Based Learning (PBL). BIE creates, collects, and shares high-quality PBL tools and resources with K-12 teachers and leaders across the country. At BIE, we believe that all students—no matter where they live or what their background—should have access to quality PBL instruction to deepen their learning and achieve success in college, career, and life and we seek to build a multi-talented staff who deeply understand and embrace the diversity of the students of today, and have awareness of the challenges in the world those students will inherit. At the end of 2016, BIE launched an ambitious new strategic plan that provides a clear roadmap for ensuring equitable, consistent, and positive student outcomes while also creating the evidence base for further adoption of PBL.
The Senior Director of District and School Development (SDDSD) will have overall strategic and operational responsibility for district and school partnership development. In addition to overseeing the development and delivery of district level services, the SDDSD will also oversee the implementation and refinement of a new PBL school coaching model, to be piloted in 2018. The position will be part of BIE’s Leadership Team, which drives the overall strategy for the organization. As such, this leader will be expected to represent BIE on a local, regional, and national basis.
