DIRECTOR OF PHYSICAL PLANT
At The Windward School, we are committed to helping students with language-based learning disabilities achieve their full potential in preparation for a successful return to a mainstream educational environment. Located in White Plains, NY, and Manhattan, NY, The Windward School educates more than 1000 students on three campuses.
THE WINDWARD SCHOOL MISSION STATEMENT
The Windward School is a coeducational, independent day school dedicated to providing a proven, research-based instructional program for children with language-based learning disabilities. The multisensory curriculum is designed for students of average to superior intelligence who can benefit from the unique educational experience provided.
The Windward School is nationally recognized for its development of instructional programs and best-in-class teacher professional development. In January 2020, the School launched The Windward Institute, which is dedicated to increasing childhood literacy and disrupting the status quo in education through providing professional development for The Windward School, educators, clinicians, parents/guardians, and non-Windward students; advocating for the rights of students with language-based learning disabilities; building leading-edge education-research partnerships; and expanding the reach and impact of the proven methodology of The Windward School.
This is an exciting time for Windward as Head of School Jamie Williamson leads Windward into the next chapter of its nearly 100-year history. The Associate Head of School for Academic Programs is an excellent opportunity for a transformational leader to partner with a talented Head of School, a dedicated board of trustees, and a hard-working leadership team.
The Windward School is looking for an individual with vision, initiative, strategic thinking, strong relationship-building skills, and track record of being a proven facilities planning professional with at least ten years of experience to join the team.
Reporting to the CFO, The Director will oversee and coordinate all construction, maintenance, and facilities needs across all campuses within a culture of service to the School community. The Director will focus on areas of planning and management including, but not limited to, conceptual discussions, project feasibility studies, space program development, managing costs and budgets, facilities infrastructure project planning and development, and always ensuring regulatory ready facilities.
