About East

East College Prep will prepare each of its graduates to use their college degrees and careers to make a Positive Multigenerational Change. Located in Lincoln Heights, this free, public charter high school aims to deliver the best personalized college prep experience in the country to students on Los Angeles' Eastside. Each student experiences a personalized learning experience through technology and great teaching, an opportunity to deepen their sense of purpose through year-long projects, and a positive school community - all to ensure that each student is ready to go to, and graduate from, the best colleges in the country. Fundamental to our model is building a safe and welcoming school culture with high expectations, while fostering student autonomy. We are looking for staff members that are responsive to feedback and data, reflect constantly on their work and student outcomes, and not take themselves too seriously; in turn, staff can expect to grow their instructional practice and leadership capacity in a high-energy, collaborative environment.

Position Description

The Special Education Student Aide will have two primary functions: serving as the primary one-to-one support for a student with learning differences and supporting the Special Education department as needed. They will also be a critical part of our school's team. In the one-to-one role, the Student Aide will adapt classroom activities, assignments, and/or materials under the direction of the general education and special education teachers to provide access to class activities. They will also be responsible for appropriately managing student behavior, implementing a behavior support plan and behavior strategies as needed.

The Student Aide will confer with the Resource Specialist and other teacher(s) on a regular basis to assist in evaluation of student progress and/or implementation of IEP goals and objectives and assist with student assessments as appropriate. They will also participate in IEP meetings as appropriate, maintain appropriate documentation, records, and reports; and maintain confidentiality of students and families as mandated by district, state and federal regulations.

The Student Aide must embody our core mindsets and be active participants in the staff community. They will be responsible for enforcing our school-wide student code of conduct with 100% consistency along with all school staff. At East College Prep, all staff will lead weekly workshops to help students explore topics not covered in any course curricula. Team members will engage in lively debates around planning, student learning outcomes and school culture. They should neither shy away from conflict nor accountability to results as measured through student learning outcomes and strategic plan goals. The responsibilities listed here are not exhaustive. There may be infrequent occasions in which students are not in session that the Student Aide will assist with office or school operation- related responsibilities.
