Rocketship Education (www.rsed.org) is a network of public K through 5 charter schools serving primarily low-income students in neighborhoods where access to excellent schools is limited. Using a blend of traditional instruction, adaptive technology and targeted tutoring, Rocketship strives to meet the unique needs of each and every student. But we believe that truly transformative schools do more than educate students; they empower teachers, engage parents and inspire communities. Together, we can eliminate the achievement gap in our lifetime.
The Enrichment Center Coordinator provides K-5 students with the opportunity to engage in enrichment activities that expose students to new learning experiences outside of the traditional academic classroom and deepen their understanding of the world around them. The Enrichment Center Coordinator plays a critical role in strengthening school culture. He or she oversees the effectiveness of the Enrichment Center and interacts with all students on a weekly basis. Students rotate through Enrichment Center every day in blocks of 45 minutes.
