Perry Township Schools
Are you aware that Perry Township Schools has a strong support organization known as the Perry Township Education Foundation, also referred to as PTEF?
Launched in 1994, the grant-awarding organization raises funds to support innovative programs to enhance learning.
Because teachers typically spend hundreds of their dollars to purchase materials and supplies for their classrooms, the grant awards are popular. Teachers submit project proposals for consideration and can receive grants up to $1,250.
Since the foundation’s inception, it has awarded more than $1 million, including $60,641 this year to 61 programs like iHeart for iPad, Running for a Reason, Jewelry for Charity and Launchpads for Success.
The foundation is in search of an executive director to provide leadership to the 17-member volunteer board of directors, which cares deeply about our schools and wants to support our teachers in their goal of meeting the needs of the children in their classrooms.
Candidates must possess close ties to Perry Township, be passionate about our schools, have a desire to support teachers, be outgoing, organized and able to set their own schedule and yet be flexible enough to make “in-flight” changes.
The director will serve as the face of PTEF and will be responsible for cultivating and growing relationships. The person is expected to maintain strong relationships with the superintendent, principals and staff of Perry Township Schools and the community.
Additionally, the director will be responsible coming up with new fundraising ideals while coordinating the existing ones: Koins 4 Kids, the annual golf outing, Running South and Art for the Heart.
The golf outing will be held in June at the Legends Golf Club in Franklin; Running South is a 10K, 5K and 1-mile run/walk held in honor of coach Tom Hathaway, and Art for the Heart is a silent auction that showcases art by students, staff and local artists.
Candidates interested in the position should submit their letter of interest, resume and references to email@example.com.
