Keys School, a K-8 of approximately 320 students and 45 faculty, seeks a part-time Extended Day Coordinator to begin August 9, 2018. Founded forty years ago, Keys offers a hands-on education with balanced concern for students’ academic, social, emotional, and physical growth. Today Keys is known for helping students to become compassionate and empathic community members while developing the confidence to find their voice and advocate for themselves.
With a cross-divisional buddy program, ice skating lessons, classes in self-science, and an extensive outdoor education program beginning in kindergarten, the school offers an array of distinctive programs. These experiences, in concert with a strong academic program, prepare students to matriculate to the region’s highly selective independent secondary schools and rigorous public high schools.
The school is situated on two campuses, about a mile apart. The Lower School campus houses grades K-4, approximately 180 students and 30 faculty and staff. The Middle School campus houses grades 5-8, approximately 140 students, and 30 faculty and staff.
The Extended Day Coordinator at Middle School is responsible for overseeing students after school between approximately 3:30 and 6:00 p.m. While students are expected to use the time to complete their homework, once assignments are finished the Coordinator is responsible for organizing board games and other interactive activities. Each day, the Coordinator must take careful attendance, organize and distribute snack, and ensure that each student is dismissed to the appropriate adult.
The successful candidate will have a proven record of responsible interactions with students, the ability to take direction and demonstrate initiative, and possess a nuanced understanding of interpersonal relations, strong verbal and written communication skills, empathy for others, and a healthy sense of humor. A Bachelors Degree is required.
Salary: Non-exempt, hourly; varies on experience and qualifications
