Position Overview: 

Teaching at Summit is unlike teaching in a traditional environment. Our teachers know the individual strengths and areas for growth of each of their students. By design, our schools are small communities where every student is known. Every teacher serves as a mentor to a group of students who they will coach, counsel through the college process and advocate for through their academic career at Summit. Mentors meet weekly with their mentees to reflect on the week and discuss their goals and plans for the coming week. Mentors push students to become self-directed learners who can set and achieve goals and seek new challenges.

Summary of Responsibilities:

The Education Specialist 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 Education Specialist will have sole responsibility for, and be expected to:

  • Implement curriculum, instruction and assessment to address the individualized education goals for students receiving special education.
  • Provide case-management for a caseload of students:
    • Ensure students are consistently receiving supports, accommodations, and/or modifications as delineated in the each student’s Individualized Education Plans (IEP).
    • Consult with general education teachers to adjust core curriculum, instruction and assessment to meet the unique learning needs and styles of a caseload of students.
    • 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.
  • Lead the development and design of IEPs for a caseload of students receiving special education, including facilitating the IEP meetings.
  • Administer and interpret academic diagnostic assessments to determine learners’ strengths and areas of need for initial, and triennial assessments.

  • Maintain knowledge of current regulations pertaining to special education.
  • Serve on a professional development team with other Education Specialists across the Summit network to share and develop best practices.
