Michael Norsworthy, SPED Recruiter:

Executive Director, The Creekside School

July 13, 2022

San Jose, CA
Full Time

Scion Executive Search has been retained to conduct the search for Executive Director for our client, The Creekside School located in San Jose, CA. The Creekside School serves students on the severe end of the moderate-to-severe autism spectrum. A "typical" student is nonverbal with significant sensory issues who is working towards a high school certificate of completion. 

The Creekside School was founded by parents wanting to meet the needs of their children while respecting their individuality. The primary philosophical foundation is based in the DIR®/Floortime™ which focuses on recognizing students' unique and special learning differences. Outside of utilizing this primary methodology, The Creekside School takes an eclectic approach using a variety of educational and progressive approaches. 

*Some students require 1:1 support for specific activities or during difficult periods of time (across days or months), so are staffed to have 1:1 support to meet these needs.

The Creekside School began informally in the basement of the home of a young boy with autism whose parents had struggled to find an appropriate school setting for his significant neurologic
and behavioral challenges. Soon other youngsters who were significantly impacted by autism began arriving at the basement with their parent or daytime caregiver.

In 2006 the school was formally established and soon thereafter leased two classrooms and ancillary space in the corner of a San Jose-based church school. Formed as a nonpublic school, Creekside continued to grow to serve students from many school districts.

In 2018 the school was invited to move into a recently vacated school in the Oak Grove School District of San Jose. The former George Miner Elementary is the perfect campus with its large, sunlit classrooms and expansive blacktop and playground area.

Creekside was founded on the commitment to provide best-in-class schooling for students with moderate-to-severe autism, with the mission to dramatically improve the quality of life for students and their families. That commitment touches every aspect of their operation, from the active inclusion of families in their child’s learning, to the quality of the teaching staff, to the breadth of knowledge and experience of their autism-related services team, to the spacious campus on which all this magic happens.

Position Summary:

The Executive Director will report to the Board of Directors and will lead the management of all administrative and programmatic operations of the School. The ED will direct strategies that support and enhance organizational operations including program development, asset management, fiscal stewardship and sound business practices, staff management and advancement.

This role takes ownership for creatively shaping a culture at Creekside that promotes academic excellence in all things and at all levels—students, teachers, administrators, parents, Board members, etc. The environment must also promote progress and accountability to create the desired culture of distinction.
