School Year: 2022-2023
Location: Permian Basin Regional Office
Region: Permian Basin, TX
Job Type: Full-Time
Role Mission: IDEA Flex Co-Teachers are full time, additional para-professional staff hired by IDEA Public Schools with the intent of eventually filling a permanent co-teaching (para-professional) role on a campus when an aligned vacancy arises. This allows IDEA to put a qualified co-teacher into the classroom immediately after a vacancy is determined and minimizes the number of days that students miss out on valuable instruction by a qualified co-teacher.
Once hired by IDEA, our Flex Co-Teachers are assigned to a "home-campus" to fulfill various educator responsibilities as outlined below. When a permanent co-teaching vacancy arises either at the “home-campus” or other campuses in the region, our Flex Co-teachers participate in a matching interview with a campus leadership team for a permanent co-teaching placement. Vacancies may arise before or after the start of school year.
All IDEA co-teachers learn instructional strategies and develop their teaching skills in order to provide highly effective instruction to IDEA students. IDEA co-teachers are responsible for student instruction under the guidance of an IDEA teacher.
