School Leader Residency

We believe that the quality of our schools is inextricably linked to the quality of our school leadership.  Thus, our replication has to be led by well-prepared leaders, who have exceptional leadership skills and know what it takes to run a school so that every day, children are getting what they deserve.  The Breakthrough Founding School Leader Residency seeks to ensure that every Breakthrough school, staff member, and student gains value from such effective school leadership as we open new schools and maintain the continued strength of our existing schools.

The paid residency consists of a one-year, full-time assignment (flexible, with consideration to developmental needs) and is intended to prepare the participant for school leadership the following year. During the yearlong assignment, the resident is immersed in the daily activities associated with school leadership, under supervision, including coaching and developing teachers, taking on various leadership responsibilities, engaging with families, etc. Additionally, the resident will take on projects in order to meet the various needs of their school assignment and/or Model.
