EBIA is seeking high-quality, dynamic Principals for the ‘21-’22 academic year - one leader to oversee its middle school campus (grades 6-8) and the other to oversee EBIA’s high school (grades 9-12). Each of these individuals will be expected to: lead the implementation of their division’s teachers and instructional program; find, retain and develop high-quality faculty and staff; support student services and special education teams in their work to serve students’ broader needs; and ensure that all members of the school community feel a sense of respect and belonging. Each Principal reports to the Executive Director and manages a Dean of Students as well as the educators on their site.


Key Responsibilities of the Principals include:

  • Leading their division’s academic programs, serving as the source of strategy, design and innovation for curricular programs and working with teachers to set instructional goals and priorities (and metrics for their measurement);
  • Ensuring the school maintains its project-based and experiential learning curriculum, giving teachers the resources they need to be successful in these areas and in integrating design thinking and blended learning throughout the grade levels;
  • Developing and maintaining strong relationships with all school stakeholders (students, faculty/staff, parents, board members), ensuring transparent lines of communication at all times and addressing issues and concerns in a timely and constructive manner;
  • Ensuring that all teachers and staff have clear lines of communication to and from the administrative team, that everyone understands who their supervisor is and is receiving regular feedback, support, and evaluation of their progress and areas for development;
  • Building student support systems that provide adequate services to meet students’ academic and social emotional needs and those related to school safety, including developing and staffing these functions appropriately and measuring results to ensure their effectiveness.


In order to fulfill these responsibilities, the ideal Principal candidates will be:

  • Proven instructional leaders with experience running a high performing school and with a working knowledge of innovative curricular models;
  • Seasoned professionals and experienced managers who know how to recruit, coach, and develop teachers and staff at all levels;
  • Exceptional relationship builders who can quickly gain the confidence of the Executive Director, parents, faculty/staff, and students;
  • Passionate advocates for all students and families who have a commitment to maintaining a strong culture of diversity, equity, and inclusion at EBIA;
  • Knowledgeable about the academic and social emotional needs of students, especially those of different racial, linguistic, cultural and socio-economic backgrounds;
  • Dynamic and versatile, able to engage a variety of stakeholders in dialogue and speak in a clear, compelling and authentic manner both about the school’s goals and priorities and the leader’s decision-making process and plans towards meeting them;
  • Bachelor’s degree required; CA administrator credential preferred.
