Reporting to the Vice President of National Program/Program Director Education, the Program Officer is responsible for helping to shape and execute the strategy of the Pathways to Postsecondary Success portfolio.
The Education Program uses thoughtful, strategic investments in systemic change to build the capacity of American public education to prepare all students with the knowledge, skills, and dispositions they need to be active participants in a robust democracy and to be successful in the global economy.
As one of five interconnected portfolios in the program, the Pathways to Postsecondary Success portfolio advances this goal by supporting practices and policies that create a diverse set of flexible pathways for students to both post-secondary completion and careers throughout their K-16 education. These pathways include relevant experiences that meet the needs of diverse learners, ensure equity of opportunity, align to 21st century economic opportunity, and make clear to students and their families what needs to happen at each stage of their educational journey. The pursuit of equity is central both to this portfolio and to the Education Program as a whole; strategies that support low-income students, students of color, and first-generation college-going students are prioritized.
