REMOTE WITH TRAVEL

Reports to: Manager of Professional Services

Position Type: Per Diem contractor

Help us spread joy! Kickboard seeks educators with school leadership experience who are passionate about helping others create safe and happy schools.

Kickboard per diem coaches guide fellow school leaders to cultivate the right mindsets, implement researched-based systems and practices that support positive behavior, and act on behavior data in order to create sustainable change in school culture. As a School Culture Coach you will work directly with school leaders, meeting them where they are on their journeys toward excellence and moving them continuously toward their culture goals by following the Kickboard Culture Data Cycle.

As our demand for services rises, you will be selected to facilitate onsite planning sessions with school leaders or lead training from the Kickboard Professional Services Framework. Our ideal applicant passionately values school culture as a critical component for learning.

Since our founding, Kickboard has worked to give educators the tools they need to create safe and happy schools where students and staff thrive. Given that the vast majority of our schools are comprised predominantly of students of color, it should not be surprising that the culture and climate work we do with schools inevitably intersects with issues of race and disproportionality in discipline. Promoting equity is a priority for Kickboard and we are intentional about situating the work we do that the intersection of school climate, cultural relevance, restorative practices, and racial equity.

Kickboard supports our nation’s most deserving schools. 97% of our schools receive Title I funding, and a large percentage of the children we serve are minority and come from poverty. Our work of helping to build joyful, safe havens for students to learn and thrive is much more than just a job, it’s a mission.
