Be a founder of a new charter school sector.
At Green Dot Washington you will be a founder, the first to lay the foundation for a new movement in Washington State that is changing trajectories for students in our highest-needs communities. You will have the opportunity to lead and innovate in new and growing school communities while working alongside passionate, like-minded colleagues.
The stakes are high in Washington.
We are working toward something bigger. Public education in Washington state mirrors national trends for students in historically underserved communities. More than half of our students qualify for free or reduced school lunch, more than 20% of our students receive special education services and at least 10% of our students are English Language Learners.
We are building a track record of success.
We're looking for others who are dedicated to continuing this momentum. Students at Destiny Middle School, Green Dot Washington’s flagship campus come from diverse backgrounds and grew approximately 3 grade levels in reading in the 2015-16 school year. Growth was distributed across all levels of entry and students on grade level nearly doubled. Some of our students receiving special education services grew as much as 4-5 grades in reading levels.
Green Dot Public Schools is committed to valuing and empowering teachers who truly believe that education can change the lives of students.
The organization was intentional about building a culture based on high expectations, equity and developing the whole child.
