The Mississippi Charter School Authorizer Board seeks a self-motivated professional with excellent problem solving and communication skills to serve as the Deputy Director of Accountability and Support for the Mississippi Charter School Authorizer Board. A successful candidate will have the opportunity to work in an entrepreneurial and reform-driven environment alongside staff members that are passionate and committed to improving educational opportunities for Mississippi’s students.
