About the organization
BASIS Charter Schools hire Subject Experts, and we give them the freedom to teach! We also hire Student Affairs/non-teaching staff to support our students, academically and socioemotionally. Our robust, world-class curriculum provides unlimited teaching opportunities. All teachers hold a bachelor's degree or higher, and completed coursework in the subject they teach. Many have related professional experience in their field of study. Teacher certification is not required. Each SET specializes in their own area of interest. We provide the "blueprint" or topics to cover for each course. Then, we let the experts teach with creativity and autonomy. BASIS.ed trains SETs in the BASIS Charter School model, and teachers are mentored and supported at the school and network levels. SETs have opportunities to also lead student clubs, coach sports, propose electives, and advise Senior Research Projects.
BASIS Phoenix South Primary - Home of the Gilamonsters is seeking qualified candidates for a Special Education Teacher for the 2023/24 school year!
About our campus:
Our Phoenix South Primary campus is a Title I School. What does that mean?
“Title I” refers to schools that serve a high percentage of students from low-income families, and they can be found in both urban and rural communities throughout the United States. Through the Elementary and Secondary
Education Act of 1965, Title I schools qualify for additional funds and support from government agencies to help ensure that all children have the opportunity to be successful.
Teachers are drawn to teach in Title I schools for a variety of reasons. Many want to make a difference for high-needs students and/or give back to their own communities. Others have been inspired by their own influential teachers and want to be “that one teacher” for their own students.
The role of the Special Education Teacher is to work directly with students to identify and fulfill needed educational services and supports as part of a student’s Individualized Education Program (IEP). Special Education Teacher participates in IEP meetings and provides support to the general education teachers regarding classroom interventions, student accommodations, modifications, and special education requirements.
