Great Oaks Legacy Charter School is seeking a Middle School - Response to Intervention Coordinator (RTI Coordinator) for the 2021-22 school year.



Great Oaks Legacy Charter School is a high-performing, innovative public charter school in Newark NJ, serving students from Pre-K to 12th grade on multiple campuses across the city. Our mission is to prepare students for success in college. We provide all children with the support they need - inclusive of resources that acknowledge and address systemic inequities - to be empowered to thrive.


We have high academic and behavioral expectations for our students. Our students, for example, are encouraged to take multiple AP classes before they graduate. We bridge the educational opportunity gap by supporting rigorous academics with daily individualized tutoring within a community committed to supporting equity and diversity.


These three principles guide our work, every day, in support of our students and mission:

  1. Creating a community that is built upon genuine and meaningful relationships
  2. Being surgical in our approach to differentiation of instruction and support of all students and team members
  3. Setting and exceed high expectations for academic growth and character development for all students, in preparation for success in college and beyond



Our students rise to conquer challenges with the help of individualized, whole-person support from the Great Oaks Legacy Charter School community including educators, tutors, peers, families  and staff.  Our mission is that each child ultimately graduates from college.


The Great Oaks Legacy Charter School ensures its students are ready to take on the world, therefore: 


  1. We give our students the academic skills and socio-emotional support they need to build upon their own strengths and abilities in order to be ready and able to achieve their dreams.


  1. Our employees agree to take responsibility for their part in reversing negative outcomes for students, to work relentlessly to support our efforts to engage each and every student, and to uphold our mission to prepare every student to succeed in college to the extent possible.


  1. It is a given that all staff work very hard. Our employees acknowledge that they will do more than just work hard.  Employees agree to seek – through  feedback, professional development, and coaching – to continue to develop and improve their job performance while employed by the School.  At Great Oaks Legacy, an ongoing quest for improvement is considered essential for all staff members.


As Great Oaks Legacy continues its journey towards anti-racism, we can be certain that our school community is ready for the work. As an organization, we are striving to be more intentional and connected to a larger, clearer mission for an educational experience that empowers scholars to be the change they want to see in the world.
