Director of Data and Compliance

Ingenuity Prep - Washington D.C., District of Columbia - Full time

Ingenuity Prep prepares PreK through 8th grade students in Ward 8 to succeed in college and beyond as impactful civic leaders. Our innovative instructional model promotes small group learning for students, collaborative teaching teams, and robust coaching and professional development opportunities for teachers. Our non-instructional compensation system rewards strong performance over time, giving staff the opportunity to earn higher levels of base compensation and bonus as they demonstrate effectiveness in their role. Our instructional leaders are charged with supporting teachers by providing clear expectations, ongoing feedback, and targeted development.

We are looking for an outstanding Director of Data and Compliance to create, customize, and implement the technical systems that support exceptional outcomes for students. The Director of Data and Compliance will ensure that instructional leaders have access to the tools they need to monitor student outcomes and drive student growth. As part of designing our systems, the Director will work closely with multiple internal stakeholders to propose school-level solutions that support varying needs across grades and academies. This role will also review DC and federal policy changes to ensure Ingenuity Prep practices are in line with new regulations and meet all reporting requirements to external stakeholders. An ideal candidate for this role is exceptionally detail-oriented, enjoys solving puzzles, and thrives in highly collaborative work environments.


  • Mission: We’re closing the opportunity gap. Students and families in Southeast D.C. have too few options for high-quality elementary, middle, and high schools. Ingenuity Prep aspires to right this systemic injustice providing an exemplary educational option for Southeast D.C.'s students and families.
  • Model: We pair high expectations with high support. Too often, our students are underestimated. At Ingenuity Prep, an innovative teacher development model, paired with best-in-class training from strong instructional leaders, allows us to grow great teachers who, ultimately, lead high-expectation and high-support classrooms.
  • Results: Our students are defying expectations. Ingenuity Prep’s students outperform their neighborhood peers on rigorous, national, college-track assessments. Already out-performing many of their more privileged peers around the city, in the coming years, Ingenuity Prep’s students will provide an expectation-defying and achievement-gap-closing proof point — showing what our kids are capable of when we provide the right opportunities, expectations, and support.
