Salem Public Schools, Collins Middle School

Middle School Learning Pilot:

Launched in August 2022, the Middle School Learning Pilot is an innovative program within Salem Public Schools that reflects the district’s commitment to reimagining the middle school experience for our students. The pilot is committed to creating connected, empowering, and unbounded learning for students, expanding on the lessons of the first year and continuing to co-design with students, families, and staff to evolve the model in year two. We measure the success of the pilot based on quantitative and qualitative student outcomes, including improved sense of agency and enjoyment of school and improved academic outcomes as measured by STAR and MCAS results.

In year two, the pilot is expanding to serve two homerooms each in grade 7 and grade 8 (for a total of ~90 students) with a staff of four core teachers, an inclusion teacher, two support team members (paraprofessionals), and shared resources with Collins Middle School including a multilingual learner educator and counselors. The pilot is led by the Dean of Innovation and seeks the support of its first Innovation Manager to enable the success of the pilot and the work to expand elements of programming at different times of the year to all students in Collins Middle School.

Innovation Manager:

As the Innovation Manager, you will be responsible for helping to bring the vision of the pilot to life in the day to day operations of the work. From ensuring the multiple field trips per week go smoothly to helping to ensure the success of new, school-wide programming in the 23-24 school year, you are excited by the opportunity to be part of a close-knit, fast-paced team determined to deliver outstanding middle school experiences for students.
