PURPOSE OF POSITION: The purpose of the position is to educate and maintain students in the assigned classroom. Teachers are expected to engage and support all students in learning and create and maintain an effective and safe environment for all students.

POSITION RESPONSIBILITIES AND DUTIES:

  • The development of effective lesson plans which are to be turned in each Friday for the following week. Lesson plans should account for various student levels within the classroom as well as procedures for assessing knowledge and the content standard the lesson strives to address. Specific curriculum used should be included as well as the Common Core State Standards to be addressed.
  • Supervision and direction of paraprofessionals assigned to the classroom. Program Supervisors and Site Administrator(s) will share in the supervision of the staff assigned; however, it is the teacher’s primary responsibility while in the classroom setting.
  • Implementation of the school-wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Supports (PBIS) program. This includes oversight of the classroom’s tracking of behavior points, student store, and communication with parents/guardians. It is the teacher’s responsibility to ensure that behavioral data is taken every day on every student and documented within Point Quest’s database.
  • Maintaining a classroom, which focuses on student engagement and safety. This includes demonstrating the implementation of the behavior plan, modification of state-adopted curriculum, as well as strategies for effectively teaching students with a variety of disabilities.
  • Attend IEP meetings for the students assigned to the classroom. Updates are to be written for each student’s annual IEP in coordination with the school district of attendance. All IEP updates (Present Levels, BIP, ITP, and Goals) are to be entered into SEIS 7 days prior to the scheduled meeting.
  • School Beautification. This includes general bulletin boards as well as student work being posted in the classroom. Bulletin boards are to be refreshed approximately every month.
  • Model appropriate behavior and social interactions with all students and staff.
  • Work in a collaborative manner with other staff and outside agencies to effectively educate each student.
  • Planning instruction and designing learning experiences for all students based on data. Summative assessments should be completed with each student no less than three times per year.
  • Professional Development. All teachers at Point Quest participate in ongoing professional development activities. These include but are not limited to twice-monthly teacher’s meetings, and monthly all-staff training. Teachers are encouraged to participate in other professional development activities outside of Point Quest.
  • Communication with parents is made on a weekly basis in addition to any communication regarding a specific behavior incident. The phone call should be made to let the parent/guardian know how their student is progressing.
  • All behavior emergency interventions are documented and a BER is to be completed. A phone call is to be made home prior to the end of the school day.
