IMMEDIATE OPENING | Campus Safety Supervisor (Full-Time)
Lodestar | Oakland, CA | Full Time
At Lighthouse Community Public Schools (LCPS), we believe an exceptional education brings out each child’s unique light and potential. Founded in 2002, LCPS operates two high-achieving K-12 public charter schools--Lighthouse and Lodestar--serving nearly 1,300 students in East Oakland. With a vision of transforming our community through creating a family of exceptional schools serving youth and families in Oakland, our mission is to prepare diverse students for college, a career of their choice, and to be lifelong changemakers. Grounded in our core values of community, integrity, agency, love, and social justice and rooted in the EL Education model, LCPS is a leader in fostering innovative schools achieving exceptional student outcomes where each child is at the center of their own learning. LCPS will continue to increase its impact as we grow to a third site in 2019, ultimately serving 2500 low-income students and their families. Lighthouse exists to counter persistent educational inequity that threatens our collective future. Lighthouse is a beacon for public education and each graduate fulfills the promise of a better, brighter Oakland and our results can testify. 95% of our graduates, almost all of whom are first generation college students, are accepted to four-year colleges. Lighthouse was named the Hart Vision Charter School of the Year in 2013 and Lighthouse Community Charter High School was named the #1 high school for closing the achievement for low-income, Latino students in 2016.
