Operations / Administration Zone Superintendent

School District 49
 Colorado Springs, El Paso County, Colorado, United States

Job Description

District 49 depends on Zone Superintendents to grow the robust portfolio of distinct and exceptional schools referenced in our strategic plan. The Power Zone Superintendent supports district administrators by collaborating with the CEO and serving as the primary liaison between the district and our schools in the zone. The Zone Superintendent provides oversight and direction to ensure zone and school compliance with applicable policy, law, ethical and professional obligations. This leadership role includes supervising school principals and other zone administrative staff; designing and communicating policies, practices and procedures; facilitating and monitoring zone and school objectives, projects and timelines; creating and communicating data/information; participating in budget development and monitoring; and ensuring that zone initiatives support the strategic priorities of the district, zone, and individual schools. Because each of the four zones in the district has unique commitments and strategies, our commitment to zone autonomy anticipates that the leadership structure in each zone may be customized according to the strategic priorities of that zone. The Zone Superintendent, in collaboration with the Chief Education Officer may create positions and structures that serve the particular character and values of the zone.

Minimum qualifications include a Master’s degree plus additional coursework required for certification or licensure and a minimum of five years of department, building or district leadership.

Located in the northwestern area of the district, the POWER Zone serves students in a traditional K-12 feeder system consisting of four traditional elementary schools, a specialized school serving students learning with indicators of dyslexia, a middle school and a high school. The schools in the POWER Zone hold high expectations for academic success, so educators focus on excellence in traditional core academics delivered through proven education practices, where strong instruction is grounded in professional learning communities.

The POWER Zone has adopted the High Reliability Schools (HRS) framework as their model for continuous improvement. Working with Marzano Resources, the leaders and schools in the POWER Zone are progressing through certification at increasing levels of the HRS framework.

School District 49, the fastest-growing district in Colorado, hosts 25 exceptional schools and programs within four distinct innovation zones, providing preK-12-aligned curriculum, online and alternative programming and homeschool enrichment. Home to more than 24,000 students and 2,100 staff members, District 49 aims to be the best choice to learn, work and lead. As one of Colorado’s recognized Districts of Innovation, District 49 is a challenging and stimulating place to lead. As part of our commitment to innovate, we host a robust portfolio of conventional, charter, online, and blended schools, including homeschool support as well as career and work-based education.
