rootEd Missouri is a statewide initiative designed to improve postsecondary outcomes for students from Missouri’s rural communities. rootEd will support districts' dedicated college and career advisors through a partnership with the Missouri Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE). Through this partnership, advisors will be placed in up to 60 rural Missouri high schools. These advisors will work alongside school counselors and district leadership to ensure every student graduates with a postsecondary plan and to grow the number of students that enroll in a postsecondary option.  

The Executive Director of rootEd Missouri will be responsible for growing the number of students in rural Missouri who choose additional education beyond high school. The Executive Director will ensure the effectiveness of the current program, and will lead the initiative across the state, communicating a long term vision, investing stakeholders, and building coalitions to ensure current and future success. The Executive Director will oversee a team who focuses on program design and implementation, measurement and evaluation, and continuous improvement and also work closely with the Department of Elementary & Secondary Education to ensure program success.
