Job Description

VGV seeks a RI State Certified Teacher of Science, with a signing bonus available in two installments at the end of each semester. The teacher is responsible for teaching 4 classes per day of Earth and Space Science, with class sizes capped at a maximum of 16 students with one prep each day. The 9th-grade position focuses on Earth and Space science. Teachers participate in weekly core content/grade level planning meetings, as well as periodic Professional Development offered during school hours. Teachers are responsible for grading, data management, home-school communication, and classroom behavior management. Village Green Virtual is the first and only full-time blended learning school in RI. VGV serves 225 students in grades nine through twelve, has a state-wide student draw, and received an unconditional five-year charter renewal from RIDE last year. The educational model of Village Green Virtual is that each student progresses at their own pace in our 100% on-line curriculum. We pride ourselves on approaching time and learning differently and offer a three-year graduation program for accelerated students. Literacy and numeracy courses have a teacher-led pace; however, most courses have a student-led pace. When there are skill gaps, or road blocks to mastering a subject, students attend workshops with other students having the same skill gap. Our goal is to utilize data collection to make the classroom experience highly relevant for every student. Our curriculum is from Edgenuity and it contains courses aligned to the Common Core State Standards from grade six to Honors and Advanced Placement. We also offer courses in technology and CTE pathways. At Village Green Virtual every student must attend school every day as we have a 180-day school year. Village Green is not a replacement for school as some virtual schools are; however, our on-line curriculum makes flexibility possible depending on student need. Our major diagnostic, curriculum and student information system partners are Northwest Evaluation Associates, Edgenuity and ALMA. We are located at 135 Weybosset Street (Main campus) and 204 Westminster Street (Rhody Campus for seniors) in Downtown Providence, RI. Our website is www.vgonline.org
