Special Education Paraprofessional
Mountain Heights Academy is now accepting applications for a part-time Special Education Paraprofessional. This position is for 20-29.5 hours per week.
Mountain Heights Academy is a tuition-free, online public charter school available to all Utah students in grades 7 – 12.

Schoolwork is divided into weekly modules, which empower students with the freedom to complete their assignments when and where they choose within each week.
As a paraprofessional your primary responsibility is to engage with and support Special Education middle school and high school students in their course work. Paras work in a variety of different classes and must demonstrate a firm understanding of the high school core curriculum. We are looking for someone with excellent communication skills since they will be interacting with case managers, team members, and most importantly, the students. Paras need to be detail-oriented, open to feedback, collaborative, self-motivated, and organized. The position is virtual but in-person meetings at the Mountain Heights offices in West Jordan will be required twice a month.
