At San Francisco University High School, we believe that the deepest learning requires collaboration among people who embody a diversity of backgrounds, beliefs, experiences, and perspectives. In order to build and sustain a community that is comprised of a wide range of social and cultural identities, we must continually engage in furthering our self-knowledge, equity literacy, and ability to communicate effectively across differences. We challenge ourselves to do this work on both a personal and institutional level, recognizing that our community is part of a larger and more complex world.

San Francisco University High School wishes to announce a full-time opening for a Director of Learning Services. This is an evolving role within the school, and we seek a creative thinker who can help us re-imagine the ways that our learning center can best support our school community.

This position reports to the Dean of Teaching and Learning and responsibilities include serving as a case manager for our students with diagnosed learning disabilities and as a consultant for faculty and students when learning issues arise. Additionally, the Director of Learning Services is a member of the Human Development Department and leads the development of curriculum on meta-cognition and the science of learning that serves all students in the school.

Strong candidates will have broad knowledge and experience of how people learn and the multitude of factors that affect learning. Independent school classroom experience is a plus, as is demonstrated success with developing and launching new programs and experience assisting students and families in applying for accommodations in standardized testing environments.

Because San Francisco University High School is a college preparatory school, we seek faculty members who are thoroughly educated in their disciplines, who are devoted to the love of learning, who will expand the diversity of backgrounds and perspectives present in our community, and who will contribute to the school's invigorating intellectual climate by promoting our values of care, inquiry, integrity, agency, interconnection. Throughout the school, we seek to hire adults who are stimulating and supportive in their work with students and who share our belief in the moral and educational value of diversity.
