JG Consulting has engaged with Boston Public Schools (BPS) to recruit qualified candidates to serve as the Head of School for the Madison Park Technical Vocational High School.

Boston Public Schools is seeking a high-energy, visionary, and dynamic educational leader to serve as Head of School of our only vocational-technical high school. We are seeking a highly effective leader with a track record of success who possesses an exemplary managerial, instructional, and operational skillset. This leader will be responsible for leading the school to become one of the City’s most important assets that are a pathway to college and career opportunities for students. We seek a proven leader who is committed to transforming the culture and instructional program using a student-centered, collaborative and innovative approach to create a top-tier school.

Boston Public Schools (BPS) has a long, rich tradition and commitment to education as the birthplace of America’s public education system. BPS is a leader in urban education. Nationally recognized programs and initiatives such as universal preschool, early childhood education, an equitable school-based funding formula, and policies specifically focused on creating greater racial equity are but a few of BPS’s signature accomplishments. Every day we are striving to be a nation-leading, student-centered public school district providing an equitable and excellent well-rounded education that prepares every student for success in college, career, and life.

BPS believes we must provide all students access to opportunities to learn and develop their full potential. We must guarantee that our students who are learning English as a second language, including those with learning differences, must successfully engage in rigorous learning with appropriate differentiated instructional strategies, and the explicit teaching of English language acquisition. BPS also deeply values the cultural and linguistic assets of our students and believes that our school communities must be safe and welcoming learning environments for our diverse students, families, and staff. The ultimate outcome for our over 17,000 English Learners, which includes over 3,600 English Learners with Disabilities, is for them to graduate from BPS with the academic and social-emotional skills necessary to be college, career, and life ready in the 21st century.
