Job Description

VGV is now hiring for an 11th-grade Algebra II teacher with a signing bonus available in two installments at the end of each semester. The teacher is responsible for teaching 4 classes per day, with class sizes capped at a maximum of 16 students with one prep each day. The course places an emphasis on Algebra II, with additional SAT prep built into the curriculum. Teachers participate in weekly core content/grade level planning meetings and periodic Professional Development offered during school hours. Teachers are responsible for grading, data management, home-school communication, and classroom behavior management. Opened in September 2013, VGV draws students statewide by blind lottery. In its first four years of existence, VGV posted the highest gains of any of the state's high schools in the assessed content areas of ELA, math, and science and consistently outperformed its sending urban school districts. VGV has averaged a 98 to 100% graduation rate and a 100% college acceptance rate to schools including: Johns Hopkins, MIT, Xavier, and Wheaton. VGV is the first RI school designed from Day 1 to be a competency-based, personalized blended learning model. It's "competency-based" in that students only progress through their lessons after demonstrating proficiency. VGV has a highly successful "dual enrollment" program whereby students, in their fourth year, can attend a local college and take courses for college credit. It is very common for VGV students to graduate having already earned 9 to 12 college credits.
