As described in last week’s session at Martin Luther King, Jr. Senior High School and in the district’s Press Release, Detroit Public Schools is undergoing a reorganization process that will be centered around supporting schools. One of the major shifts in the organizational structure is that schools will be organized into groups that will be called a “Network.” Most support to schools will happen within the network; however, there will also be necessary elements retained in Central Office that will provide structure and support.
The redesigned DPS seeks committed transformational leaders to work within each Network Team. Each member of the Network Team will play an essential role in ensuring the success of the schools within the network.
For example, one of the members of the new Network Team is the Network Leader.
Here’s the position description: Network Leaders should be leaders with a demonstrated ability to create and inspire high performing teams of instructional leaders that result in high academic outcomes across a group of schools. Network Leaders shall demonstrate a proven history of leveraging research and data to increase achievement of all students and student subgroups, building human capacity and fostering a positive culture and climate for learning. Network Leaders should also demonstrate a strong track record in:
- Leading strategic educational initiatives with an ability to effect and sustain change;
- Building positive leadership, coalitions and relationships across a diverse group of stakeholders; and
- Leading significant cross-functional initiatives in diverse and complex organizational settings.
All Network Team positions will begin to be posted over the course of the next few weeks on detroitk12.org , under the “Business and Career” tab. We are beginning this process by seeking qualified internal candidates, as we believe that the talent to move the District forward exists within each and every one of us, if given the opportunity.
Please review the job postings for roles within the new Network Teams. If you hold the qualifications, and have the vision and passion required to transform Detroit Public Schools, please apply.
