New School Launch fellowship
Good Reason Houston and BES are looking for leaders to join the 2022 New School Launch Fellowship, through which individuals deeply committed to transforming education embark on a multi-year process to design, found, and lead a locally responsive and high-quality public charter school in Houston, Texas.
Fellows will co-design a school alongside a community design team over a period of two years of Fellowship training, compared to the standard one year in other tracks.
NEW SCHOOL LAUNCH FELLOW
The resources and coaching that I have received from the Good Reason Houston team and their service providers has really helped to stretch my growth as a leader and deepen my preparation to build and lead a school that will transform the lives of students and communities.
This fellowship has helped me understand the intricacies of running a charter school and has given me expert resources to help with the details. I really wanted the autonomy to bring a new, innovative concept to my city.
