1 ORGANIZATION POSITION LOCATION REPORTS TO ENVISION SCHOOLS COLORADO SPECIAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR DENVER, CO VICE PRINCIPAL BACKGROUND SPECIAL EDUCATION COORDINATOR POSITION DESCRIPTION Envision Schools Colorado (ESC) is a new nonprofit charter management organization (CMO), the first in Colorado, which will ultimately operate a network of six schools in the Denver metro area. Our CMO is based on the successful model and track record of Envision Schools, a CMO based in San Francisco that operates four high schools in the Bay Area. The first two ESC schools will be located in the Denver Public Schools (DPS) district. The mission of Envision Schools Colorado is to transform the lives of all our students, especially those who will be the first in their family to attend college, by preparing them for success in college and in life. Our schools will be true communities marked by intentional diversity, rigorous academic discipline, and excellence at every level. Compassion and high expectations will inspire and empower our students to succeed. Each Envision school is academically rigorous and integrates art and technology across the curriculum to instill the critical thinking, life experience, and creative skills necessary for students to be successful in college and beyond. Our first school, Envision Leadership Prep, will open in August 2009 in the Park Hill neighborhood of northeast Denver. The second ESC school ( Envision Prep #2 ) will also be located in an area of Denver that has been traditionally underserved. Locations for the remaining four schools remain to be determined but will be in metro Denver districts. Each school opens with ~100 sixth graders and ~100 ninth graders and will increase by two grades each year until the fourth year, when only sixth graders will be admitted. At capacity, each school will serve ~700 students in grades 6 through 12. As a CMO, we are committed to allowing principals and teachers to focus on instruction and learning and to removing many of the administrative burdens often placed on school leadership at single site charter schools. To this end, we will maintain a central support team who will provide comprehensive services to the network of six schools, including professional development, assessment and use of data to improve instruction, curriculum development, charter acquisition, and back office services such as payroll, benefits administration, fundraising assistance, facilities acquisition, human resources, and technology set up and maintenance.
