Chief Executive Officer

Alliance for Excellent Education - Washington D.C., District of Columbia - Full time

The Alliance for Excellent Education (All4Ed) invites nominations and applications for the position of President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO). This is a unique opportunity to lead an organization whose clear focus is improving education for all children—in particular historically underserved students—and is committed to using the latest technology to mobilize the latest proven research, adolescent science, and practice to reach its objectives. 

All4Ed seeks in its next CEO a passionate and proven leader who will help to advance its critical work, distinguish All4Ed, and solidify its place nationally. Working with the board of directors and staff, the CEO will develop a vision for All4Ed that continues its excellent work at the federal level and expands its influence on states and districts to dramatically improve results for students. The leader will bring a demonstrated commitment to addressing issues of systemic inequity in public education; an appreciation for the nexus of advocacy, policy, science, and practice in education transformation work; and a leadership style that encourages relationship- and partnership-building. The CEO will need to understand the education system and federal and state policy landscape, while also being comfortable working at the school, district, state, and federal levels. The next CEO will also adeptly oversee and develop staff, ensure the organizational structure matches All4Ed’s goals, effectively collaborate with the board of directors, and wisely manage and generate resources. The new CEO will bring to this role experience in raising substantial funds to support an organization’s priorities. Based in Washington, DC, the CEO will be well supported by a talented staff, passionate board members, and a strong national reputation.

Screening of complete applications will begin immediately and continue until the position is filled. For more details, and to submit inquiries, nominations, and applications, please see:
