Job Description:
Hartford Public Schools (HPS) is proud to announce the search for Chief of Staff.  HPS is looking for a dynamic, experienced leader to serve as an extension of the Superintendent, driving communication, collaboration, and alignment to accomplish the district’s goals.

  • A serial optimist. You've got a deep, personal commitment to the mission of Hartford Public Schools and a genuine belief that all students can achieve academic excellence, regardless of race, language ability, or socioeconomic status. You're a fierce advocate for students with diverse language and cultural backgrounds; you've got a "healthy rage" about the state of public education, and you want to be a part of a team that is doing something about it every single day.
  • A systems creator. You're unfazed by ambiguity and thrive in situations where you get to build something out of nothing, develop and inspire others to execute on the vision, or create order out of chaos. You want to do work that's never been done before - better than anyone's ever done it.
  • A results driver. You possess a track record of effective leadership and an ability to navigate complex issues and drive impressive results. You use data to drive the decisions you're making, change course of action as needed, and troubleshoot effectively to move projects forward, and get the job done with excellence.
  • A details maven. Nothing gets past you. You don't drop balls, miss deadlines, or forget to respond to someone's inquiry. You follow up with other people to follow up with you. You track timelines, data, and information in an organized and systematic fashion; and, you develop systems to help others do the same to ensure kids get the support they need to thrive.
  • A bridge and community builder. You work across individuals, teams, and lines to bring people together to collaborate on projects that cross multiple departments and work streams. People trust you because they trust you will have their backs – even when that means holding them accountable.
