FamiliesFORWARD currently has an opening for a resource coordinator at Carson School. The job description:
FamiliesFORWARD, as the lead agency at Carson School, and in partnership with Cincinnati Public Schools (CPS), employs a full-time resource coordinator at Carson.
Cincinnati Public Schools’ full-time resource coordinators are selected by a school’s LSDMC (Local School Decision Making Committee) with input from the principal and lead agency. The resource coordinator is employed by the lead agency and supervised by the lead agency (with on-site guidance also provided by the principal, with the LSDMC’s advice and consent).
The resource coordinator supports Cincinnati Public Schools in the implementation of the Community Learning Centers (CLC) nationally recognized model of creating schools as centers of the community to strengthen students’ outcomes aligned to CPS’ One Plan, and to promote vibrant communities for students’ success.
Specifically, resource coordinators in Cincinnati Public Schools will:
- Recruit, develop, coordinate and maintain strong partnerships with strategic community partners and stakeholders (students, staff, parents, community) that align with outcomes to meet the diverse needs of individual students, using the REFORM model (Review data and set goals, Engage partners and stakeholders, Focus on individual students, Offer support, Reset when necessary, Measure impact).
- Connect students and families to the appropriate partner service/strategy to meet needs.
- Promote trust and collaboration by fostering and building relationships among CPS’ internal and external stakeholders for a culture of high expectations.

- Engage with community leaders by regularly attending Community Council meetings, Business Council meetings and other civic group gatherings.
- Create effective communication to include and motivate partners to engage with the school; assist both the school and the district in community conversations.
- Facilitate and host regular and consistent partner meetings. Share data, monitor progress toward goals and identify gaps and opportunities, using the science of continuous improvement to develop strategies for meeting needs and outcomes; and work in collaboration with the school's leadership to lead an annual school CLC needs assessment and evaluation process.
- Collect actionable data. Use data management and analysis to identify resources that will benefit students using Learning Partner Dashboard (LPD), TransACT/Cayen Systems online data-management system and other means. Review student data and update data by the end of each school week, and track student-partner connections using approved service types.
- Use standard operating procedures to support the implementation and maintenance of the Community Learning Centers model. Update and share CLC school-based Partner Summary Log, Organizational Charts with goals and partners’ Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) agreements.
