The Re-Engagement Specialist will work as part of a team dedicated to contacting recent high school dropouts and re-enrolling them in the Boston Public Schools (BPS). The team works at the BPS Re-Engagement Center to ensure appropriate placement for these returning students and supports the placement of disengaged high school students into alternative education placements. The team maintains contact with returning students at their new schools. If re-enrollment in the BPS is not a viable option, the team strives to connect the dropout with other public or non-profit support systems, such as high school equivalency (HSE) programs and Boston’s Career Centers.
Please submit cover letter and resume to Cameron Mendes-Moreau (Cameron.Mendes-Moreau@bostonpic.org) by Friday, October 18, 2019.
