Classification Title: Division Director I

Program Name: Safely Opening Schools

Working Title:

Program Areas: Program Administration (Program/Project)

Job Description:

The Public Health Institute (PHI) is an independent, nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting health, well-being, and quality of life for people throughout California, across the nation and around the world. As one of the largest and most comprehensive public health organizations in the nation, we are at the forefront of research and innovations to improve the efficacy of public health statewide, nationally, and internationally.

Position Summary:

In January 2021, PHI launched the https://safelyopeningschools.org/(SOS) program with major funding from The California Endowment and with additional support from the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative and others through PHI's https://www.phi.org/press/togethertowardhealth/. The SOS program supports 10 California school districts implementing a routine rapid antigen COVID-19 testing model for onsite staff and students as part of the districts' safer reopening plans. It is now expanding its services to provide training and support to other high-needs districts across California and potentially in other states. SOS provides virtual and onsite training and technical assistance to districts, coordinates on knowledge and implementation with the California Department of Public Health (CDPH), and partners with a data platform provider to register users and report testing results.
Initially launched as an 8-week pilot, SOS has drawn interest from the California Department of Education (CDE) and school districts across the state. As a result, PHI is looking for a Managing Director who will work with the Principal Investigator to lead the program, successfully complete implementation and wrap up the initial pilot phase, work with evaluation partners and with PHI leadership and partners to develop a strategy for ongoing support to California's schools, in particular through training districts on the SOS rapid antigen testing model. In addition, the SOS Director is responsible for fostering strong relationships with school districts, CDPH and CDE, SOS funders, and other key stakeholders and supporting the scale-up of safe and effective screening programs in schools.

The SOS Managing Director will report to the SOS Principal Investigator and will directly manage SOS staff including the SOS Program Manager, Senior Trainer, and other training consultants.
