PAVE Schools, Inc. (PAVE) prepares Kindergarten to 8th grade students to thrive in competitive high schools and four-year colleges. PAVE provides its students with a rigorous academic program and a community built on the organization’s core values of Perseverance, Achievement, Vibrance, and Excellent character. PAVE supports the establishment and operation of:
● PAVE Red Hook, a Kindergarten – 8th grade public charter school in Red Hook, Brooklyn. In 2017 – 2018, PAVE Red Hook will educate 490 Kindergarten – 8th grade scholars.
● PAVE Southeast, a Kindergarten – 8th grade public charter school in Raleigh, NC. In 2017-2018, PAVE Southeast will educate 314 Kindergarten – 3rd grade scholars.
Embarking on a significant growth phase, PAVE Schools, a Charter Management Organization (CMO), was formed in 2014 to support the replication of the PAVE model in New York and North Carolina. Over the next 8 years, PAVE Schools will grow to a network of eight Kindergarten - 8th Grade schools (4 in each region), impacting more than 6,000 students.
Reporting directly to the CEO, and serving as a member of the Network Leadership Team (NLT), the Chief Operating Officer (COO) will be responsible for growing the organization from 2 schools (1 in NYC, 1 in NC) to 8 total schools (4 in NYC, 4 in NC) by 2023. The COO will maximize PAVE’s operational efficiency, building scalable systems and processes in day-to-day school and network operations. The COO will establish new schools for operation, drive the new charter application process and acquisition, and oversee the leasing and building of new facilities, in accordance with PAVE’s strategic plan. The COO will build organizational capacity by standardizing PAVE’s model.
Our Core Values
Perseverance: We believe that reflection and refinement is key towards continuously growing and improving. We give and receive direct feedback and hold each other accountable. We are solutions minded, positive and allow ourselves to be vulnerable as we persevere to get better.
Achievement: We set ambitious goals and work relentlessly to attain them. We understand the key to student academic growth is great teaching; we obsess over the art and science of teaching timeless content well. We use data to drive all our decisions and measure our success.
Vibrance: We share gratitude with our colleagues, students and families. We recognize that complaining saps our collective strength and remain optimistic in the face of challenges. We focus on the joy of our practice and recognize the accomplishments of others. We believe that good humor and generosity of spirit are key to a positive culture.
Excellent Character: We always assume the best and take concerns to the source. We maintain emotional constancy and disciplined language in all situations. We treat all in our community with honesty
