Walter L. Cohen High School is searching for an /Behavior
Interventionist for the 2022 - 2023 school year. This individual will
ensure a safe and productive environment for students while they are
temporarily removed from the classroom. Additionally, he/she will
support teachers in building classroom and school culture to ensure
our students have both the academic skills and character traits to
success in college and in life. If you are relentless about seeing all
students achieve at high levels, this is a chance to work at a school
that does whatever it takes to ensure our students are equipped with
the academic and social skills needed to "Prep for College"
and "Prep for Life."
Walter L. Cohen High School opened its doors in the Fall of 1949 and
became the 5th public secondary school available to students of color
in New Orleans. In 2012, Cohen became a member of the New Orleans
College Prep (NOCP) charter management organization.
Our mission is to prepare students with academic and life skills for
success in college, career, and beyond.
Prior to Hurricane Katrina, only 1 in 10 public high school students
graduated from college. We are on a mission to turn those statistics
around and ensure all of our students have an opportunity to succeed
in college and beyond.
NOCP is producing significant student achievement gains for our
students, 75% of whom are African-American and ~20% of whom are
English Language Learners. Recent highlights of our achievements include:
In 2015, Walter L. Cohen College Prep launched The Academy of Career
and Community Education (ACCE) . ACCE is a comprehensive program
designed to prepare students with significant exceptionalities (ages
14 - 22) to achieve their most rigorous post-graduation goals.
Cohen is the home of the 2018-2019 D.A.L.E. Fellowship for innovation
in English Learner education. The fellowship includes a financial
award, instructional resources, and ongoing training to support
differentiation for English Learners. In addition to improving their
own classroom practice, our ELL teachers train other content teachers
and strengthen our capacity to deliver high quality instruction to all students.
