In 2016 Bluum launched the Idaho New School Fellowship to recruit top talent into the ranks of Idaho’s public charter school leadership. As of December 2020 we have had 19 fellows, invested $2.4 million in their fellowships and collectively they have or will open 13 schools across the state of Idaho.
This year we are working with the Idaho Youth Ranch to recruit a talented educator to lead the state’s first residential charter school, which will serve a group of at-risk students ages 11 – 17. The one-year fellowship will ultimately prepare an individual for all aspects of school leadership including: planning, implementing, and managing the academics, students and staff in this Idaho charter school. Part of the planning and startup process will include leading and managing the charter application due no later than September 1, 2021.
We are now seeking applications for our 2021 Residential Charter School Fellowship. Questions? Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
