Special Education Teacher (#2024270)

Posted 8 days ago

Bridge Elementary is recruiting for a full-time Special Education teacher.

At Bridge, all 1st – 6th grade students will have a Personalized Learning Plan (PLP) identifying the student’s current level of performance in reading and math, reading and math goals, action steps to achieve the goals, and PLP Goal Activities for students to complete during non-school hours to help with goal attainment. Students are assigned an advisor to help create the PLP and meet with the student twice monthly to review and update goal progress and determine the next steps towards goal attainment. The student’s PLP reading and math goals will align with the student’s IEP as appropriate.

Under direction of the Director of Special Education, the selected candidate will provide specialized instruction for students based on the service pattern in the student’s IEP. The individual will be required to gather data to support the student’s needs and progress and communicate these needs and progress to the IEP team through progress reports and IEP meetings. The individual will collaborate closely with the student’s classroom teachers and advisor to ensure all parties are working together to help the student succeed.

Teachers will have a minimum of 38% of their contract hours available for data analysis, lesson design and preparation, collaboration and professional learning. For a fulltime teacher this equates to a minimum of 15 hours each week.
