Jonathan Stott has worked in education reform as a middle and high school administrator and as an educational consultant. In 2009, as a Dean of Students at Codman Academy Charter Public School in Boston, one of the nation’s top Expeditionary Learning Schools, Jonathan worked with faculty and staff to create a school climate improvement plan.
In 2010, after successfully managing his former school’s five year charter renewal process with the state DOE, he started work as an independent project management consultant. In this role, Jonathan worked with a range of educators and private and public sector leaders in support of innovative school design projects. In 2011, he helped successfully launch two schools: Margarita Muniz Academy, Boston’s first public dual language high school and Baystate Academy, a health sciences charter school in Springfield, MA.
In 2012, he joined Idea Public Schools, as a founding member of their Campus Leadership Team in Austin. At Idea, Jonathan helped ensure a successful launch for one of the first in-district charters in Austin, resulting in strong academic and operational performance as well as high rates of parent satisfaction.
In his spare time, Jonathan enjoys cooking, gardening, and exploring Austin’s wonderful network of trails and creeks. He is extremely excited to join EcoRise this year and help bring a rich environmental sustainability curriculum to schools locally and nationally.
