    Company Name: The Holdsworth Center

    Job Description

    The Holdsworth Center seeks a District Support Consultant who believes in the promise of public schools to deliver excellent and equitable results for students, and who believes their unique skills and inner purpose would be a great match for Holdsworth’s mission, culture, and values.

    Our organization & mission

    The Holdsworth Center is an Austin, Texas-based nonprofit founded in 2017 by Charles Butt, an education philanthropist and Chairman of H-E-B, a regional retail company. Our mission is to impact, over time, the quality of K-12 public education for all Texas students by supporting and developing leaders.

    The Holdsworth Center partners with Texas public school districts to help educators become experts at leadership and to grow stronger leaders within their own systems. Holdsworth makes investments within districts and brings education leaders from across Texas to learn at its Campus on Lake Austin, a one-of-a-kind place dedicated to the idea that public education matters. Holdsworth hosts educators for learning sessions on the 44-acre campus, which has 186 sleeping rooms and state-of-the-art classroom space.

    Our work

    In our leadership development programs, superintendents, central office administrators, principals, assistant principals, teachers, and other campus leaders engage with some of the nation's top experts in their fields from a variety of sectors, including K-12 education, academia, government, and business.

    In some of our partner districts, we embed Holdsworth consultants to work hand-in-hand with central office leaders to define what great leadership looks and help them build custom solutions to identify and develop future campus leaders, place them in leadership roles and support them as they progress in their leadership journey.

    Our theory of action is that stronger leaders will build stronger systems that achieve stronger results for students. That belief is backed by research showing that after teachers, school leaders have the greatest influence on student outcomes.

    Our culture & values

    This is a full time, individual contributor role that may involve changing assignments with multiple districts over time. Weekly, in-state travel is required for meetings and convenings with our partner districts.
