Openings for Baton Rouge Bridge Academy for the 2017-18 school year include:


Founding Director of Operations

Baton Rouge Bridge Academy is seeking a strategic and passionate Founding Director of Operations to set the vision for and manage day-to-day operations at our start-up school. The Founding Director of Operations will be primarily responsible for all matters of school administration that do not directly relate to academics or student behavior, but are essential to effectively operate the school.

We believe that effective management of a school ensuring a smooth flow of logistics enables teachers to deliver instruction students need to make big academic gains. Seamless operational systems are what set the foundation for a rigorous learning environment. When teachers and students have what they need when they need it, students are able to reach and exceed their academic potential. The Founding Director of Operations will prepare the school for its launch year, manage the day-to-day school financial operations, and administer crucial data systems. In traditional schools, these tasks can dominate the time of teachers and school leaders, taking critical time away from the ultimate goal of student achievement. Reports to/works collaboratively with the School Director.
