Employer Description
 
OVERVIEW

Camden City School District is in a historic period of change.  With the recent state intervention, Camden is uniquely poised to transform and re-focus its efforts to ensure all students have the academic and personal skills required to succeed in life.  Currently, Camden City has 22 district, 11 charter, and 7 Renaissance schools serving more than 15,000 students in total of whom nearly 95% qualify for free or reduced price lunch.  The district is committed to building talented and committed cadres of educators and providing the appropriate supports to schools to ensure all students can be successful.

The Camden Commitment outlines the district’s plan to ensure that every student in the city is enrolled in an excellent school that meets his or her unique needs.  The Camden Commitment represents the district’s promise to honor the faith of educators, community members, and families in the limitless potential of our children by implementing the considerable changes necessary to ensure that they are able to learn in an excellent school.  As a part of this plan, the district is in the process of streamlining and transforming the Central Office into a customer service and school support organization focused on ensuring that all schools are well-equipped to provide all of their students with an excellent education.


We are seeking individuals who will exemplify the district’s core values: 


Equity for All Students 

We make decisions and implement policies that honor all students’needs and empower our students and their families. We believe in equality of opportunity—all students deserve a fair shot. 


Respect and Humility

We serve our community by recognizing the strengths, experiences, and perspectives of others. We humbly recognize our own limitations and incorporate lessons we gain from our reflective practice. 


Evidence-based

We use evidence to inform decisions and to ensure that we are accountable to our students and families.


Communication & Collaboration

We communicate openly and work collaboratively, recognizing that getting to the best possible decisions requires input from others. Honest communications build trust and establish a community that assumes best intentions.  


Solutions-oriented

With respect for the complexity of this work and the history that precedes us, we focus on persistence, resourcefulness, and inclusiveness to drive toward solutions.
