 Director of Technology

July 2022

University School of Nashville seeks candidates for Director of Technology starting in July 2022 to succeed a long-serving colleague who has overseen tremendous change in recent decades. The Director’s responsibilities extend to many connected functions, leading our IT team, coordinating our technology infrastructure across campus, providing support and guidance for innovation in the classroom and in all the offices that serve our educational programs.

The Director of Technology is a member of the K-12 administrative team, reports to the school Director, and works closely with leaders in every facet of school life. Managing budgets, coordinating acquisition of technology tools and services, working with a range of service providers, and promoting the security of all our systems and data are essential to this role. The position calls for an excellent communicator, an enthusiastic collaborator, and a talented teacher to help bring out our best.

The ideal candidate holds a bachelor’s degree, advanced degree preferred. Evidence of increasing responsibility and professional growth is required, as is demonstrated experience with enterprise level technologies, K-12 environments, and team management. The job is varied, requiring flexibility, availability, willingness to pitch in and be part of the team, patience, insistence on getting things right, and vision for the school’s potential.

USN has a deep commitment to equitable and just community spaces. Candidates should be knowledgeable of the ways in which implicit biases in race, ethnicity, gender identity and socioeconomic class can shape social interactions and community culture. Candidates should be able to translate that knowledge into demonstrable actions that promote equitable and just programming. 

The School

University School of Nashville is an independent, non-sectarian, co-educational day school with enrollment of 1,080 students in kindergarten through twelfth grade. In 1915, the George Peabody College for Teachers opened Peabody Demonstration School, USN’s predecessor, which earned acclaim for its curriculum and faculty. In 1974, Peabody College announced plans to close PDS, and a group of parents, alumni, students, and teachers reconstituted and re-chartered the school as University School of Nashville. 

USN’s midtown location adjacent to Vanderbilt University and its Peabody College for Teachers reminds us each day of our beginnings 107 years ago in the demonstration school culture of innovation and educational best practices. It’s a vibrant educational community for both students and teachers in the midst of a dynamic city.

In the USN community, students expect much of each other, and faculty benefit from that high standard. We seek educators who are enthusiastic about their own learning to complement their work and we offer many opportunities for professional growth. USN is committed to creating an institutional environment that mirrors the cultural and ethnic composition of greater Nashville. USN encourages a diverse applicant pool and provides equal employment opportunities for employees and job applicants.

To safeguard the health and well-being of the USN community from the risks associated with COVID-19, all employees are subject to USN policies regarding COVID-19. As of, January 27, 2022, more than 97% of employees and more than 91% of USN students K-12 are fully vaccinated, and the school strongly encourages all families to pursue vaccination.
