Job Description:

Strategenius on behalf of Maybeck High School *** Maybeck High School, an inclusive and vibrant school grounded in community and individuality, is seeking a thoughtful and dynamic educator to lead through collaboration and compassion as the next School Director. Founded 50 years ago in Berkeley, California, when four local teachers rebelled against censorship in the classroom, Maybeck was established with academic freedom at its core - freedom for students and staff, alike. Today, Maybeck thrives from that practice of freethinking. It is an intentionally small school with an enrollment of approximately 115 students. Reporting to the Board of Directors, the School Director is simultaneously the public face of the school, an enthusiastic educator, and its central administrator. While the School Director has executive decision-making authority regarding many of the school's affairs, they are expected to actively collaborate and to build consensus among the full staff when making educational and operational decisions. Administrative leadership at Maybeck is unique in this way. Maybeck was founded as a school run by teachers and this is still true today. While many schools centralize decision-making authority to a "Leadership Team," at Maybeck, leadership is extended across all staff through several different committees that plan, propose, and decide policy and operations. To this end, Maybeck's School Director must have a broad-minded definition of servant leadership, with sincere intention and demonstration of placing the group before the individual. In partnership with the staff, the Director will guide the school community both in everyday planning and long-term strategic direction, including helping to develop the next strategic plan. The Director is the keeper of Maybeck's collective vision, and with that, is a teacher, at heart and in practice. The Director will be seen and known on campus and in the classroom. This is not a role where one stays locked behind the closed door of an office; rather, it entails leading from within as an active participant in daily life. The Director will provide additional operational structure and vision to maintain Maybeck's spirit. Employment Type: Full Time Salary: $150,000 - $185,000 Annual Bonus/Commission: No
