CONTRACT: Policy & Advocacy Consultant

The Commit Partnership (the “Partnership”) seeks a Policy & Advocacy Consultant to support its State Policy and Advocacy efforts for the 2021 Legislative Session. The Consultant will work collaboratively with the Chief Executive Officer and Senior Policy Advisor through June 2021. Past legislative wins have included legislation to improve the quality of pre-K programs, improve the pipeline of quality early childhood teachers, and create a new teaching certificate for early grades teachers. In the 2019 Texas legislative session, the Commit Partnership played an important role with many others in passing HB3, an $11.6B school finance and property tax reform package that included equitable funding for full-day pre-K, outcomes funding for college/career readiness, pay raises for teachers, and more. The Policy Consultant will play a key role in helping build a 2021 policy agenda that supports improved postsecondary outcomes and workforce preparedness and that preserves the critical policy accomplishments seen within HB3 last session, including overall funding levels.
