New Bedford is seeking an exceptional school leader to accelerate the school district’s recent progress. Five years ago, the School Committee resolved to reinvent New Bedford Public Schools with the goal of elevating the achievement of all students. Knowing well that rebuilding an urban school district is not an overnight exercise, the mayor and the committee seek a school leader who will develop a sustainable culture in the district to support a high-quality, customized learning environment in every classroom. The position offers a unique opportunity for an aspiring leader in urban education who shares the mayor’s and school committee’s vision that public schools should activate the potential of every child.
Application deadline is February 15; a slate of candidates is expected to be presented to the screening committee on February 26.
