Maret School, an independent day school of 650 students in grades K-12, is seeking a Director of After School Program. The ideal candidate will have strong leadership and managerial experience. The After School Director will report to the Director of Lower School and be expected to embrace the School's Mission and commitment to Equity and Inclusion.
The After School Program serves students in grades K-8 from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. everyday except Wednesday, when the hours are 1:15 – 6:00 p.m. The mission of the program is to provide a safe environment in which Lower School students play in a neighborhood-like setting, enjoy snacks and activities, and work on school assignments. An added element to the program for Middle School students is the focus on individual responsibility within a guided environment.
The After School Director manages the day-to-day operations of this program, where the following logistics are integral to and play an important part in the success of the program. All are under the responsibility of the Director:
Managing the After School budget
Keeping track of the hours counselors work and communicating that information to the Business Office
Managing contracts signed by families who are active in the After School Program and billing drop-in participants. This includes monitoring the total number of children in the program and notifying parents when space is not available.
Keeping track of all Lower and Middle School students on campus after school hours.
Organizing and running Gap Camp on school holidays and the week of meetings at the beginning and end of the school year
Organizing and running child care for evening events throughout the school year
Searching for and hiring vendors outside of Maret to provide a rich selection of clubs for the fall, winter, and spring seasons
Working with any Lower or Middle School group renting space on campus to be sure you know who the students involved are and where the event takes place
Fostering the partnership between home and school
Keeping open communications between teachers and After School counselors
Ordering and coordinating daily snack selection and supplies for the Program
