Job Description:

 

New Orleans College Prep is searching for Special Education Teachers for the 2018 - 2019 school year. These individuals are expected to provide an educational atmosphere where scholars of various academic levels can develop a strong understanding and appreciation for the subject matter. Special Education Teacher candidates should be comfortable providing high quality instruction to scholars with a variety of exceptionalities including (but not limited to) Autism, Specific Learning Disabilities, ADHD, Down Syndrome, Traumatic Brain Injury, etc.  

New Orleans College Prep's mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for success in college, career, and beyond. Over the past 10 years, NOCP has grown from a single school with a single grade of 100 students, to now operating 4 charter schools that span grades PK-12 and serve over 1,500 students. If you are relentless about seeing students achieve at high levels, this is a chance to work at a school that does whatever it takes to ensure college success for all children.

About New Orleans College Prep

NOCP is producing significant student achievement gains for our students, 98% of whom are African-American, low-income, and traditionally underserved by the New Orleans school system. Recent highlights of our achievements include:

  • Walter L. Cohen College Prep achieved a 100% college acceptance rate for four years in a row.
  • Walter L. Cohen College Prep has consistently improved students’ academic performance and achieved a "B" school performance score (SPS); nearly doubling its SPS in just 4 years.
  • Sylvanie Williams College Prep has fully integrated social justice into their academic programming and has included multiple trips to historic sites throughout the South.
  • Our most recent takeover of a failing school, Lawrence D. Crocker College Prep, achieved the highest growth in the city on the state tests in 2014, growing from the lowest performing elementary school in the city to scoring above the district average after the first year of NOCP management.

More detailed information about our academic performance can be found on our website by visiting www.nolacollegeprep.org and clicking "Our Results."

We are very proud of our school staff, parents, and scholars for these achievements, but we have much more to accomplish in order to realize our mission of 100% of our students prepared for success in a rigorous 4-year college.
