Alliance College-Ready Public Schools was founded in 2004 based on the belief that all young people––regardless of ZIP code, income, ability, or background–– are capable of achieving at high levels. Alliance is now one of the largest and most successful public charter school networks in the nation, operating 26 high-performing middle and high schools serving 13,000 scholars in Los Angeles communities that have been systemically oppressed. In our 16th school year, Alliance has a proven record of success: though 93% of incoming sixth graders come to Alliance reading below grade level, 95% of Alliance graduates have been accepted to college—including 73% to a four-year university. We strive to truly change the life trajectories of our scholars and communities, with a goal of 75% of Alliance graduates completing a four-year college degree. Now is the time to join our collaborative community to make long-lasting change across Los Angeles.
The Instructional Specialist, Inclusion & Special Education plays a critical role in supporting our schools to ensure that all scholars can achieve at high levels. The Instructional Specialist will report to the Director, Inclusion & Special Education and work alongside school leaders (e.g. Special Education Coordinators, Principals, Assistant Principals, Deans of Instruction, Department Heads, Instructional Leads) to implement strategies and programming that supports Diverse Learners, with a particular focus on students with disabilities, to reach their full potential. The role is an ideal fit for a successful educator with expertise in Special Education programming and instructional strategies that promote inclusion and accessibility. Ideal candidates have a strong record of results and experience in a leadership role within a school or within a district, charter management organization, or technical support provider. The Instructional Specialist should be able to quickly build relationships with a range of diverse stakeholders and work with individuals and teams to dramatically improve the quality and accessibility of instruction in core content areas across a portfolio of MS / HS schools.
