School Success Manager – ASSISTments (2022)
The ASSISTments Foundation is working with a growing number of schools to implement ASSISTments, our free teacher tool, effectively, including through a partnership with the Louisiana Department of Education. We seek a full-time School Success Manager to support the success of ASSISTments’ school partnerships.

The ASSISTments Foundation (TAF) is a non-profit with a staff dedicated to improving student learning through ASSISTments, a responsive online learning platform that is teacher-paced and evidence-based. ASSISTments allows teachers to assign independent math practice online, providing students with immediate feedback and teachers with actionable data. ASSISTments experienced tremendous growth, reaching over 20,000 teachers and 500,000 students last school year. The system is one of few available K-12 math tools proven effective through rigorous randomized controlled research.
