The New Visions Data Portal is dedicated to empowering school leaders and administrators with a modern technology platform to manager the work of their school.
Our portal, launched Aug 2017, is currently used by 200 schools throughout New York City and is expanding to over 300 for the 2018-19 school year. Prior to launch, we worked closely with schools to pilot a series of spreadsheet-based tools focused on improving graduation rates, achieving an 80 percent graduation rate throughout our network.
As we expand the features within the portal to include both post-secondary support and early literacy, we are looking to support the long-term growth of a product manager eager to create features educators love. You will join a dynamic and fast-paced environment and work with a cross-functional team of designers, developers, and instructional coaches to shape the future of our products.
