Job Description

About the Position:

We are looking for a temporary Family Leave Middle School Operations Coordinator for Spring 2024 (February/March/April).

About Us:

Community Roots Charter School (CRCS) is a K-8 school in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. As a diverse by-design school, we are committed to being inclusive and centering anti-bias/anti-racist education. We provide all students with an educational environment where learner variability is acknowledged, valued, and supported. We view this variability as an inherent strength of our community and use it to inform classroom practices and lesson design. We also establish a strong community where students reflect on their identities, learn from each other, develop critical reading and thinking skills, and are equipped with strategies to take action on issues they care about.

Teaching and learning at CRCS is embedded in a meaningful real-world context, where we teach children to see the connections between school and the world. Through a rich social studies focus and a social-emotional curriculum, we aim to equip all of our students with the skills and perspectives that will support them in developing into fully engaged members of their communities.
