About the organization

At Summit, students unlock the power within themselves to gain the knowledge, habits, and skills to successfully navigate college and careers. Summit’s research-based instructional approach informs everything we do and helped us create an educational experience unlike any other — one that supports the whole student throughout the school day.

The Teacher’s Role
Teachers are at the heart of every Summit classroom serving as content experts, mentors, and leaders. They ensure that students have the right supports to meet and exceed grade-level expectations; help students practice self-direction, an invaluable skill that students will use in all parts of their lives; and provide mentoring and coaching to help students reach their goals.


- The Special Education Teacher is responsible for acting as a full faculty member, across all school systems (such as grade-level teams and weekly faculty meetings) by inputting advice, student status updates and personal opinions and ideas. In addition, the Special Education Teacher will have sole responsibility for, and be expected to:

- Support design and implementation of accommodated instruction, classroom accommodations, and assessment of Individualized Education Plan (IEP) Goals for students receiving Special Education services

- Lead the development and design of IEPs for a caseload of students receiving special education, including facilitating IEP meetings

- Provide support to students in office hours before and/or after school one day each week

- Ensure students are consistently receiving supports, accommodations, and/or modifications as delineated in each student’s Individualized Education Plans (IEP)

- Collaborate with school staff, related service providers and parents to collect information and monitor the progress of a caseload of students in order to review and adjust educational plans at least annually
