Research And Data Analyst - YES Prep System Office

Expired Job

YES Prep Public Schools Houston , TX 77033

Posted 2 months ago

POSITION: Research and Data Analyst
REPORTS TO: Director Analytics and Strategy
LOCATION: Houston, Texas
THE CHALLENGE & OPPORTUNITY
Across the nation, only half of all students from low-income communities graduate from high school and only 10% earn a college degree. Even though 84% of their students are economically disadvantaged, YES Pre provides evidence that different outcomes are possible. Ninety-seven (97%) of YES Prep alumni matriculate to college within one year and alumni like Eddie Zapata are earning their college degrees at four times the rate of their peers with similar socioeconomic backgrounds. How do they do this? Each of YES Preps 18 campuses serves 6th-12th graders like Monique Bowie. Students typically enter YES Prep one or more grade levels behind but quickly find themselves on a different life trajectory as a result of transformative relationships with teachers and leaders and access to excellent educational opportunities.
As the first minority-majority city, Houstons schools cannot keep up with demand from students like Eddie and Monique. Houston is the 4th largest city (on track to become the 3rd), and this booming population translates into 7,000 families on YES Preps waitlist. YES Preps student enrollment is estimated to grow from 12,600 to 17,000, between now and 2023.
YES Prep needs a dynamic and diverse Research and Data Analyst to make our mission a reality. As a YES Prep employee, you will achieve jaw-dropping results, create pathways to opportunity for our students, build transformative relationships, and eliminate educational inequities to advance social justice. To put it simply, you will play an integral role in empowering stakeholders to make data-driven decisions, including daily choices and long-term strategic decisions, by providing accurate, timely, and accessible data and assisting teams to derive insights from the data. This position additionally involves strategically designing and developing advanced visualizations of data to meet end-user requirements.
