Who We Seek
If you are someone who is mission-driven, humble in your reflections about your practice, smart in the ways you approach data, and results-oriented, we’d love to see you apply.
During the 2022-2023 school year, RMP is driving after five big goals:
  1. Kindergarten through second-grade students will grow, on average, 1.5 years in math and reading.
  2. Students receiving interventions will, on average, grow 2 years in reading.
  3. Third- through fifth-grade students taking CMAS will score an average of 45% on track for the next grade level with 10% scoring “exceeds expectations.”
  4. Average Daily Attendance at each RMP school will be at least 96%.
  5. At least 90% of students who start at RMP, stay at RMP. (We call this the Persistence Goal.)
Each member of the organization plays a part in achieving these goals. School-based staff members will work towards 2 or 3 metrics that are aligned to both their individual roles AND the Big 5. Please review this chart, find your position and review the goals.
