Business Operations Manager

Business Operations Manager

Rocketship school leadership teams each include a Principal and Assistant Principals focused on instruction, an Office Manager focused on student information and family engagement, and a school leader focused on all other operations aspects of running the school -- what some might call an “AP of Operations,” though we at Rocketship call it a Business Operations Manager (BOM). The BOM reports directly to the Principal and manages a team of hourly Operations Specialists. As the Operations leader, the BOM is responsible for all aspects of lunch, recess, arrival, dismissal and physical space at their campus.  Thus, the role requires not only the ability to manage “business” topics like logistics and compliance, but also a deep understanding of behavior management, culture-setting, and behavior management coaching. The BOM helps ensure the school has a consistent culture across spaces, keeps our students safe, and ultimately enables instructional staff to focus on teaching and learning. This means BOMs are multi-talented leaders who can build systems, own processes like procurement and facilities maintenance, and partner with all adults on campus to support our students. The BOM role is an excellent opportunity for operationally-minded teachers and school leaders who want to grow and develop through an operational school leadership position.
