Position Overview

Dedicated Aides are assigned to work with a specific scholar(s) with a disability. They work to provide classroom-based support and intense case management to our students both in and outside of the general education setting. The support of the Dedicated Aide will allow scholars with disabilities to be educated alongside nondisabled scholars to the maximum extent appropriate. Dedicated Aides accompany the scholar to all classes during the school day, implement the scholar’s behavior plan, provide individualized attention and instruction during academic periods, and support them during other portions of the day, as determined by the Individualized Education Plan.

Some of the more common reasons for this type of support include (1) protection/safety of the scholar, (2) instructional support, (3) transition, and (4) reduction of anxiety for the scholar. Dedicated Aides carry out their responsibilities under the direct supervision of the Special Education leadership team. Dedicated Aids will ideally work with scholars throughout the school year.

  • Use creativity to plan activities for students
  • Model appropriate spoken and written language skills
  • Coach assigned student in social problem solving, and appropriate behavior
  • Work with assigned student on academic tasks specified in the daily lesson plan
  • Collect observations and data on student learning and behavior
  • Keep scholar information confidential by treating it with the strictest confidence and refraining from discussing the student outside of the school environment

Dedicated Aides support positive scholar behavior and classroom and school culture by:

o Implementing supports and consequences specified in the scholar’s Behavior Intervention Plan.

o Responding to scholar behavior using Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports.

o Dedicated Aides support youth’s safety and physical well-being during the school day by: ensuring that they are with the assigned youth during all hours specified on the IEP, including moving with the assigned youth to all locations, accompanying them within the school environment to ensure safety, and asking for help when a youth’s behavior threatens their own or other’s safety.

  • High School Diploma (required)
  • Bachelor's Degree or pursuit of a bachelor’s degree (preferred)
  • Tutoring experience
  • Basic reading and math proficiency
  • Basic people skills and ability to work with special needs students
  • Basic knowledge of special education students
  • A desire to develop a career within Maya Angelou Schools and the field of Education
