Introduction

Scholarship Prep is seeking dynamic, engaging, and passionate difference-makers for our student “Scholars” for our Oceanside campus.

Our staff must believe wholeheartedly that all students have the inherent ability to succeed. Moreover, they must be committed towards ensuring the school is a place where students, staff, and the community want to be in order to work collectively towards our mission and vision. 

Position Overview

Under general supervision, the Special Education Instructional Aide assists students with disabilities to meet their physical and emotional requirements in the classroom; assists teachers in the supervision and training of students in special educational programs by relieving them of routine paraprofessional instructional and clerical duties; performs a variety of instructional support duties in developing life skills and/or physical care activities; and performs related duties as required.

About Scholarship Prep

Scholarship Prep provide free, public charter schools aimed at establishing a sustainable education program where scholarship is the standard, diversity is treasured, and parents are partners in student achievement. 

Utilizing a university-inspired, college scholarship concept, our students will understand that by achieving academic, athletic, and/or arts excellence, a broader array of possibilities and options exist for future endeavors in higher education.  

Ultimately, our goal is that EVERY student will one day have the opportunity to attend college and perhaps receive a college scholarship, earn a degree, and give back to their community.

Our founders, former California Senator Gloria Romero and charter school developer Jason Watts, saw an opportunity to make a positive impact on the lives of students and families in underserved communities by laying the foundation for students to succeed in college and career. 

Their goal was to create not only a fun and engaging atmosphere for students and staff, but also a collegiate-inspired environment that will motivate students to attend school and excel. Each classroom will not be identified by number.  Rather, students will be in UCLA, Harvard, Stanford, etc, further establishing a "college feel".  

Scholarship Prep provides an enthusiastic and supportive environment for our staff, including dynamic leadership and professional development embedded within our work calendar.

Scholarship Prep’s instructional program is based on the tenets of academic rigor, student engagement, innovation, and creativity.  As a Project-Based Learning (PBL) modeled school, Scholarship Prep teachers mixes learning technologies and interactions resulting in a socially supportive, constructive learning experience.
