Why Work At Innovation
SpEd Teacher Tuition Incentive
Innovation strives to attract and retain highly qualified teachers of students with disabilities to serve our large population of students with disabilities in the ICT classroom and to engage in best practices in case management. Existing Innovation teaching staff are invited to apply for financial support to become certified special education teachers. Our Special Education Teacher Incentive/Tuition Reimbursement Policy (the “Policy”) is designed to defray or fully cover the cost of tuition. Approval for tuition reimbursement involves completing an application form and meeting certain requirements for reimbursement.
SpEd Teacher Supplemental Compensation
Historically, thirty percent or more of Innovation students have IEPs (Individualized Education Programs) and virtually all of our core classes are co-taught, following the ICT (Integrated Co-Teaching) model. We adhere to the highest practice standards in special education case management, classroom instruction, and IEP-related services. We recognize that special education teachers have additional responsibilities that require substantial time, effort and dedication to our students and their needs. Accordingly we offer SpEd Teacher Supplemental Compensation to special education teachers who demonstrate professionalism through instruction, case management, and by maintaining a high attendance level, as reviewed and verified by our Special Education Department Chair.
