The Expanded Success Initiative School Design Fellowship is a new fellowship established by the New York City Department of Education with the support of the Open Society Foundation. The fellowship is dedicated to the design and launch of eight new high schools that close the opportunity gap and prepare Black and Latino young men and women for college and careers. The Expanded Success Initiative is a component of the New York City Young Men’s Initiative.
• The term of the fellowship will run for 14 months of continuous learning and professional development, beginning late spring/early summer of 2013.
• The expectation is that fellows become school leaders in one of eight new schools, proposed to open in September 2014.
• It is anticipated that the new schools will open as both district and charter public schools. Fellows may opt to provide leadership in either model.
• Fellows are offered a competitive salary, health benefits and generous professional development opportunities throughout the duration of the fellowship. Salaries are determined by current earnings and salary history. Starting salaries for NYC principals are based on established collective bargaining agreements.
• Fellows will be employed by the Fund for Public Schools for the duration of the fellowship, although current employees of the NYCDOE may continue service within the system.
• Upon completion of the fellowship, it is expected that each fellow become employed in a position of leadership in one of the eight new schools that open in September 2014. Fellows will then be employed by the school.
• Applicants must make a full-time commitment to the fellowship, starting no later than July 1, 2013.
• All fellows must be committed to accepting a position of leadership in a new school, which launches in September 2014. All fellows are expected to work in some capacity in the schools they design and develop.
• Applicants must be eligible to work in NYC public schools, receiving appropriate security clearance and fingerprinting checks.
• Applicants should possess a Masters degree in an appropriate field, or equivalent higher education.
• Candidates who meet the requirements and are eligible to be in the NYC principal candidate pool are encouraged to apply. Learn about the NYC DOE Principal Candidate Pool.
• Fellows who do not possess eligibility for the NYC principal candidate pool, or do not have three years of teaching experience, should NOT be discouraged from applying. You are eligible to apply if you bring outstanding experience and demonstrate the capacity and commitment to school redesign in ways that shift the paradigm for Black and Latino young men and women.
