Region 16 Comprehensive Center Job Description
Operations Project Manager (OPM) AK, OR, WA
Posted February 10, 2021
Application Deadline: April 10, 2021
This position will work in a mostly remote environment, and can be based in Alaska, Oregon, or Washington. In-person interaction and travel will resume once it is safe to do so.
The Region 16 Comprehensive Center (R16CC or the Center) is one of 19 federal grant– supported regional centers in the United States and US territories. Each center is charged by the United States Department of Education (US ED) to help state education agencies, regional educational agencies, local educational agencies, and schools improve educational outcomes for all students, close achievement gaps, and improve the quality of instruction. Together with our state, regional, tribal, school, and community partners, R16CC provides evidence-based services and support across our three-state region.
R16CC is comprised of three statewide organizations representing 29 Educational Service Districts in Alaska, Washington, and Oregon.
R16CC’s model is a unique consortium of partnerships. Each state in our region develops, with its partners, a state service plan. As a Center, we also use our common goals and objectives to structure a regional service plan. Working together, we address some of the greatest challenges in education today.

They will also partner with State Directors, project staff, and consultants to implement and manage state and regional projects and day-to-day operations. The OPM will be a part of a developing Center. An innovative mindset will be crucial as we learn and grow together.

Yupiit School District
The Yupiit Board of Education desires a superintendent that understands, appreciates and will be involved in our local Yup’ik culture. The Board seeks a superintendent that will work to build trusting, positive relationships with employees, regional board members, local advisory board members, and all stakeholders in the three villages of the district (Akiachak, Akiak and Tuluksak). The applicant will recognize and have experience with the uniquely important role of village school principals and their associated local advisory boards and work to support their success in effectively educating Yupiit students who are connected to their local culture and traditions. The Board is seeking an individual that has demonstrated experience with effective and uniquely appropriate ways of measuring student growth and proficiency that recognizes the learning styles and cultural qualities of indigenous people.
The ideal candidate will be adept and experienced in working with federal, state and local agencies including our tribal governments in a collaborative fashion that promotes meeting the needs of Yupiit student success and academic achievement. Additionally, the superintendent will have the skills to work collaboratively with the Board and school communities and will spend quality time in all three communities. We desire a person who has shown an ability to be creative when resources are scarce; who can motivate and lead without oppressing; who is not afraid to aggressively seek other sources of support for educational programs and school maintenance. It is essential in a small district such as ours that a superintendent knows how to work well with a business office and manage the district resources as effectively and efficiently as possible.
