Couple of Edujobs:
Bellwether is partnering with the Tennessee Department of Education to help with a couple of roles including Director of STEM Initiatives. If you are interested or want to nominate a colleague email us. Bellwether is also working with Ednovate, a new CMO in Los Angeles whose mission is eliminating the dropout problem and preparing every student for success in post-secondary education and in the workplace. They need a CEO. Ednovate was launched by the University of Southern California and its Rossier School of Education. Ednovate will open and support a network of replicable public charter high schools across the metropolitan Los Angeles region and, ultimately, will expand to other urban centers across the nation. These schools will distinguish themselves by providing a truly hybrid environment in which students’ social/emotional and academic growth will be supported with both online delivery of academic core courses and collaborative, experiential learning in a local, bricks-and-mortar facility open seven days a week, ten hours a day, and year-round. The first school, USC Hybrid High School (HHS), opened this month. Again, questions or nominations email us.
