In recent years, Colorado has made an effort to build accountability into the framework of its public schools. Despite the momentum and work that has been underway, many parents in Colorado’s public school system are unaware that their child’s teacher will be evaluated on his/her performance, that same teacher will be teaching to a new set of academic content standards in the 2014-15 school year, and that students will be assessed using the new standards. These changes require a change in perspective and also, an adequate level of resources to support their effectiveness.

Helping parents understand the relationship between these changes, education funding and their own roles in advocating and supporting their students, is the objective of Great Ed’s participation in the Equity Alliance Project, Phase II.

The information will include the importance of higher achievement for all students and ultimately, that students will have more opportunities for success in postsecondary education or the work force upon graduation as a result of the changes. Specific Duties and Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: ? Identify and pursue reaching African American parents in metro Denver through already established relationships or building new relationships. Of particular focus will be reaching out to parents in community organizations and schools. ? Build relationships with these parents and organizations and offer to provide explanation about new school reforms and how they affect students. Opportunities include presentations, one-on-one meetings and tabling events. ? Provide guidance to parents about advocating for their students within their schools and school districts. ? Collect and enter survey data from presentations and meetings into Equity Alliance monthtly reports. ? Implement social media options, including Facebook posts, text messaging and possible monthly webinars to keep parents engaged who have already been contacted. ? Participate in Equity Alliance trainings. ? Create and maintain database to reflect the progress and goals of Great Ed’s participation in the Equity Alliance project. ? Participate in weekly team meetings with Great Ed staff. ? Support Great Ed outreach and advocacy work in the African American community as it relates to the mission and vision of the organization.

Desired Skills & Experience:
The Women's Foundation of Colorado is boldly leading essential, long-term, systemic change to advance economic opportunities for women and girls. Why is Change Needed? • In Colorado more than half a million women are living at or near poverty. • More than 5,000 girls drop out of high school each year, resulting in a lifetime of challenges that are difficult, if not impossible to overcome. One in four high school dropouts live in poverty. • Careers in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) offer higher salaries and earning potential during a woman's lifetime; however Colorado high school girls are less prepared than boys for college-level math and science - coursework needed to enter STEM careers and higher education programs for these careers. Many women are discouraged from pursuing their scientific interests. • Colorado families headed by single mothers have the lowest median annual income of all family types at $26,705, and the cost of child care can be nearly half their income. Through research, education, public policy, and strategic philanthropy, the Women's Foundation of Colorado works with the community to ensure women and girls are empowered to reach their full potential. We support women and girls by identifying needs and ensuring those needs are addressed through strategic collaboration with investors, volunteers, and community partners.
