ERS Team


Jess O'Connor


Email Jess

Since joining ERS in 2015, Jess has worked with district partners nationally, with a focus on the way in which resources are allocated and organized to support strategic school design. In Baltimore, Jess designed prototypes to help principals explore ways to reorganize their resources to support key strategies. She has directly supported school teams in Boston, Holyoke, and Oakland design schedules and staffing plans to implement research-backed strategies to improve student outcomes.

Jess has also conducted analyses in Spring Branch and Memphis to help district leadership understand how resources currently play out across the district and in schools. Most recently, she advised Atlanta’s finance team on implementing a student-based budgeting system to increase school-level equity and provide principals with the funding flexibility to best meet the needs of their students and staff.

Prior to ERS, Jess was the Associate Director of Operations at a network of charter schools in Rhode Island. There, she led several strategic initiatives to support the network’s growth, including implementing their student information and data analysis systems, managing the lottery and enrollment process, and supporting the design and launch of the network’s high school, which emphasizes personalized learning in partnership with Summit Learning.

Outside of work, Jess enjoys exploring the sights and foods of Boston, traveling, and spending time with her husband and son.
