Educator job fairs, new fellowships, and a superintendent search continues in Memphis

What’s happening: It’s a busy spring for Memphis educators, parents, guardians, and students as a host of opportunities have been announced recently that stand to shape education in Memphis for years to come.

Educator job fair: On Tuesday, April 4, the Teach901 initiative will host an in-person job fair for educators for the 2023-24 school year. School officials from across the Mid-South will be on-hand from 6 to 8 p.m. at the Crosstown Concourse as they seek to fill positions that include teachers, administrators, support staff, substitute teachers, and more.

Job fair registration and an up-to-date job board are each available online.

Innovation fellowship: Local nonprofit Memphis Education Fund has announced a new opportunity for school leaders that offers individualized and targeted support for making innovations in the Memphis school model. The InnovatED Fellowship is a two-year program designed to help school leaders achieve excellent and equitable education for all students, incorporating mentorships, workshops, school tours, and targeted support over the course of the fellowship.

The application window for the InnovatED Fellowship closes on Sunday, April 30, more information of which is available online.

Super Search: And finally, community members have until Friday, March 31, to submit interview questions for the Memphis-Shelby County School board in their search for a new superintendent of the district. This comes as part of a lengthy public outreach component of the search, which has included community forums, surveys, and more.

“In April, board members will receive a comprehensive list of all submitted questions to help guide our interview process,” Althea Greene, MSCS Board Chair, says in a statement. “The interviews will include two community meetings and one student-centered meeting. There will be opportunities for the public to attend in person (space-permitting) and online.”
