Vice President, Research and Evaluation

Chicago, IL
National Association of Charter School Authorizers

The Position

The Vice President, Research and Evaluation will lead and manage all research and evaluation functions at the National Association of Charter School Authorizers (NACSA). This leader will deepen NACSA’s knowledge of quality authorizing practices and policies by framing and managing a research agenda that examines effective authorizing based on both quantitative and qualitative analysis.

The Organization

Founded in 2000, NACSA is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit and the leading organization dedicated to improving public education through excellence in charter school authorizing. NACSA works to strengthen the people, policies and practices of authorizers – the organizations designated to approve, monitor, renew and, if necessary, close charter schools. NACSA provides training, professional development, practical resources, consulting and policy guidance to authorizers. It also advocates for laws and policies that raise the bar for excellence among authorizers and the schools they charter. Above all, NACSA is committed to advancing excellence and accountability in the charter sector and to increasing the number of high-quality charter schools across the nation.

In November 2012 NACSA launched its five-year One Million Lives campaign, dedicated to providing one million more children the chance to attend a great school that will prepare them for success throughout their lives. The campaign recognizes that simply increasing the overall number of charter schools is not the answer. By engaging authorizers and a broad coalition to close failing charter schools and open many more good ones, we can get one million more children into 3,000 high-performing schools within five years.

Role and Major Responsibilities

The Vice President, Research and Evaluation will:

• Set vision and direction for the organization’s research activities;

• Manage the development of an evidence-based research agenda to collect and analyze information on authorizer policies and practices and the relationships between authorizers, school performance and student outcomes;

• Commission research and coordinate with independent researchers;

• Oversee data collection;

• Plan and report on research projects and grants;

• Assess progress toward NACSA’s One Million Lives campaign;

• Serve as a key resource and information provider to other divisions within the organization;

• Build and manage a dynamic team around the concept of strengths-based management in order to achieve priorities and goals; and

• Work closely and collaboratively with NACSA colleagues and partners to communicate NACSA’s overall mission and vision.

S/he will report to the President & CEO.
