The new Director of Curriculum (DOC) will lead an academic team made up of nine instructional specialists and their Public Allies Instructional Fellows, as well as recruit, hire, support and mentor new teachers; conduct performance appraisals for all teachers; manage the Curriculum Department budget; coordinate course scheduling and instructor workloads. The DOC will also serve on the Eagle Rock Leadership Team and collaborate across all divisions of the organization.
