The Youth Policy Institute is currently seeking an Instructional Specialist in Mathematics for middle and high school students (grades 7-12) for its Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood in the Promise Zone initiative. To support teachers, instructional leaders, and academic tutors, we are seeking one Instructional Specialist who is specialized in Math grades 7-12.
The Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood in the Promise Zone will transform communities within the Promise Zone through a continuum of cradle-to-college-and-career services, and will be a zone of choice for families with a wide range of high-quality school options including traditional, charter, pilot and partnership schools. The centerpiece of the Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood in the Promise Zone is an innovative public-private partnership that blends diverse funding streams around a core set of outcomes and objectives. The Los Angeles Promise Neighborhood in the Promise Zone is transforming 8 neighborhood schools into full-service community schools focusing on student proficiency and family supports through the college and career pathway.
The team of Instructional Specialists (Math, ELA/ELD, and STEM) will work together to manage and deliver high quality services to school sites located throughout the Promise Zone. Each Coach will be responsible for developing, selecting, and delivering professional development, curriculum, and assessments, as well as supporting classroom teachers through a cognitive coaching model.
