Who We Are
Saga Education is a national nonprofit, founded in 2014 and aimed to confront educational inequity to support historically under-served schools and their students. Saga Education has dedicated itself to providing high-dosage, in-school tutoring in partnership with public high schools. Since our founding, Saga Education and our tutoring fellows have served over 17,600 students across Chicago, New York City, Washington, D.C. and Broward County.
In the 2021-2022 school year, Saga Education is exploring partnerships with several new city districts including Providence, RI and Charleston, SC.
The Work and Why it Matters
Nationwide, students are experiencing a significant interruption in their formal education due to COVID-19 and resulting extended school closures. While educators and students alike have many unprecedented challenges to overcome this upcoming school year, educators report that their top concern is students falling behind in math. This concern is heightened for educators in high-poverty districts who teach predominantly black or Latinx students.
Now more than ever, we need talented, caring, and capable people, committed to supporting our students in their academic and social development. Finding academic interventions that address inequities that historically underserved students face is one of our nation’s most urgent challenges.
Reporting to the Director of Programs, the Site Director is responsible for ensuring that Saga Education's program is functioning effectively at their school site. The Site Director serves as the direct supervisor and coach for a team of 5-10 Saga Fellows and the site’s Learning Coordinator. The primary goal of the Site Director is to drive student learning in Saga Math Lab by consistently improving the effectiveness of tutorials. This is accomplished through weekly observations and coaching sessions with Saga Fellows and with consistent collaboration with school administration and teachers to ensure an effective and healthy partnership.
