  • Overview

    Classical Charter Schools is a National Blue Ribbon Award-winning network of charter schools located in the South Bronx. Though our neighborhoods are historically under-served, we provide a world-class, well-rounded education to our scholars through a classical curriculum that includes art, music, Latin, debate and character education.

    Responsibilities

    • Diligently work to align social, emotional, and behavioral supports with school mission
    • Receive regular and ongoing feedback and support from administration and instructional leaders
    • Serve on the school-based Scholar Support Team and work within a Response to Intervention model (attend weekly meetings, respond to incoming teacher referrals, monitor designated plans, implement short-term interventions, and determine scholars who are in need of an evaluation)
    • Assist the Dean of Students and other staff in providing crisis support to scholars, as needed
    • Collaborate with the school’s leadership team and other committees to support all scholars in achieving high standards
    • Regularly communicate with parents, teachers, and other staff to provide coordinated support
