Special Education Manager

The Scholar Support Team plays a pivotal role in our Network design and the lives of scholars and families. Success Academy is seeking a Special Education Manager to work in our central office supporting leaders, scholars, and families in our high-performing elementary and middle schools.

Our Special Education Manager will work directly with school Principals to manage all Special Education processes and scholars/families in crisis, to ensure the needs of our scholars are being met. Additionally, they will liaise with the Department of Education/Related Service Agencies, identify community resources for our families, and deliver high quality professional development to school-based staff.

At Success Academy, we are redefining what's possible in public education. Since opening our first school in Harlem in 2006, we have swiftly grown to 41 high-performing schools, from Bed-Stuy to the Bronx, serving approximately 14,000 kids. We are scaling to 100 great schools serving 50,000 children across New York City, bringing transformational change here and across the country. We believe all children, regardless of zip code or family income, deserve the life-changing opportunities that a world-class education brings.

To achieve exceptional results for children, we hire the best, and the brightest. We value excellence, ethics, and celebrate diversity, and are relentlessly committed to improving ourselves and our work to enhance the lives of our scholars.  

Our Special Education Manager will report directly to our Associate Director of Scholar Support and should be someone who...

- Will act as a key guide and advisor to Principals and school leaders who manage Special Education services, Response to Intervention, and scholar/family crisis situations;
