Through authentic academic experiences and a culture of holistic wellness embedded in a strong diverse community, 5280 prepares all students for success in college, their future career, and any challenges that life presents. 5280 is uniquely designed to meet the needs of Denver students and the changing economy through our innovative model:</em></p><ul> <li> <strong>Proven Pedagogy</strong>: 5280 employs a hands-on curriculum through project based learning (PBL), which actively engages students in learning by asking them to investigate interesting and complex questions, problems, or challenges, and create something in response. 5280 teachers engage students in large-scale interdisciplinary projects that integrate technology authentically and professionally. Students produce high-quality, professional-level work that is exhibited to a public audience. </li> <li> <strong>Radical Community</strong>: 5280 takes community-building and wellness seriously, and devotes time for students to develop as people outside of academics. Teenagers grapple with where they belong, what they value, and what kind of person they want to be. We tackle the challenges of adolescence head-on and support students as they learn to navigate life more independently. Our culture is both purposeful and cultivated, emphasizing inclusiveness and empathy within a strong, diverse community. Each morning, students engage with one another around issues and conversations that build social and emotional intelligence, and each afternoon they choose various electives that engender physical, social, financial, mental, and spiritual wellness. </li> <li> <strong>5280’s Summit Program</strong>: 5280 includes a smaller program specifically designed to support students in recovery from addiction and eating disorders. The program provides a safe, supportive community for students to walk alongside peers facing similar challenges, and to receive guidance and support from specialized Summit Program staff. </li> </ul><p><em>5280 will opened its doors this fall with 104 ninth grade students, and roughly 15 students (all grades) in our Summit Program. The school will grow one grade each year until we reach full capacity in 2021, serving ~416 students in grades 9-12.</em></p><p><br></p><p>---</p><p><strong>Requirements</strong></p><p><strong>Qualifications (Required):</strong></p><ul> <li>Strong commitment to the mission, vision, and design principles of 5280</li> <li>Minimum of a Bachelor’s degree</li> <li>Teaching credential with Special Education Endorsement<i> is required (or desire to work towards a credential).</i> </li> <li>Background Check (Fingerprint) Clearance</li> </ul><p><strong><br>Qualifications (Preferred):</strong></p><ul> <li>Advanced degree in your field</li> <li>3+ year working with students as a teacher, teacher intern, or coach</li> </ul><p><br></p><p><strong>Benefits</strong></p><p>This role offers the chance to design and launch a school from the ground-up alongside an innovative and compassionate group of education professionals. While 5280 is committed to our core design principles, we offer a collaborative decision-making and organizational structure, empowering our teachers and staff with real autonomy not often seen in public schools today. 5280 also offers a competitive compensation package that includes annual cost of living and performance based salary increases, participation in the Colorado PERA retirement program, 100% funding of individual medical benefits, ongoing and robust professional development opportunities, and approximately 8 weeks of summer vacation and four weeks of school holidays and vacations. <br></p><p><br></p><p><i>An offer of employment will be subject to the successful completion of a background check and verification of authorization work in the United States. 5280 is an equal opportunity employer.
