Manager of School Partnerships: Philadelphia School Partnership

The Philadelphia School Partnership (PSP) works to give every child in America’s fifth largest city the opportunity to attend a great school. We invest philanthropic funds and support in high-impact schools so they can serve more low-income students—whether they be in the traditional public, public charter or private sectors. Our aim is to catalyze the creation or transformation of enough schools to ensure better options for 50,000 students, or nearly one in four of all Philadelphia schoolchildren. Since 2011 PSP has invested in more than 60 schools, creating new educational opportunity for more than 30,000 students. PSP also works to create the conditions that enable great schools to grow and thrive, including a strong pipeline of qualified teachers and principals, resources and initiatives to empower parents and families, and policies that enable entrepreneurial school leadership. Nonpartisan and data-driven, we work with government officials, business leaders, education leaders and practitioners, and community groups to pursue the promise of a great school for every child.

PSP believes that in a city as large as Philadelphia, there is not one best or right kind of school. Two hundred forty thousand children need a wide variety of schools from which to choose. The city has numerous examples of high-performing schools, and they span all three primary sectors: charter schools, district schools and private/Catholic schools. Unfortunately, there is a shortage of quality options in all three sectors. More than 35,000 students sit on waiting lists for the city’s best schools—which include private, charter, district magnet, and district neighborhood schools. Our work centers on leveraging philanthropic capital to attract entrepreneurial leadership and overcome inertia and financial and political barriers so that Philadelphia can have more great schools

Position Summary

Join a mission-driven education nonprofit—a growth fund for great schools—as a member of the Investment Team (Schools and Talent). The Investment Team solicits and reviews applications from schools, school leaders, and school networks (as well as encourages potential schools, networks, and leaders to apply for funding), determines and structures investments, manages relationships with investees, and closely monitors academic and other outcomes. When results lag at a portfolio school or network, the Investment Team works closely with the school or network to provide direct service support, guidance, and accountability. This support comes in many forms either directly from the Investment Team and or through partnerships/vendors. Ultimately, our goals are aligned with the schools and networks goals – for the students to achieve at extraordinarily high levels.

The Manager will work closely with school teams and talent organizations as they strive to deliver high quality academic programs through direct service and other methods.
