We are looking for highly motivated, innovative, and skilled teachers to join our team at the District of Columbia Public Schools (DCPS) and help staff our first ever DCPS Virtual Academy. In the fall, we expect to have a majority of DCPS students return to the classroom for full-time in-person learning. However, we still have many students with documented medical conditions who need to continue virtual learning for the 2021-22 school year. To support these students, we will be hiring teachers to provide virtual instruction through our DCPS Virtual Academy for a limited number of students across all grades from PK-12.
Staff at the DCPS Virtual Academy will report in-person at the former Benjamin Banneker High School (800 Euclid St NW, Washington, DC 20001) at the start of the school year. The positions are full-time roles with benefits for the 2021-22 school year. We are proud of our competitive compensation rates that provide our educators with one of the highest paying teacher salaries in the nation. Please note that these positions will not be renewed for the 2022-23 school year. If you are hired and wish to continue working in DCPS, our team will support you in pursuing a position at a different school for the following school year (2022-23).
Apply today by emailing Pat Cunningham (firstname.lastname@example.org) and attaching a copy of your resume. Applications are being reviewed on a rolling basis; however, we encourage candidates to apply as soon as possible to receive priority consideration.
