Utah International Charter School is a small, diverse secondary school entering its ninth year of operation in South Salt Lake City. Our mission is to empower English language learners and other students in grades 6 to 12, including refugees, immigrants, and American-born students, with rigorous academic content made accessible to all students in a student-centered environment. Ninety percent of our students came to the U.S. as refugees, and 90% are English language learners. We are seeking a paraprofessional to work alongside the special education director and classroom teachers to support the learning of special education students and pre-literate students.
