Employment

We are hiring why-sayers
People who want to make things better, make things more fun, more clever. People who aren't afraid of the boss. People who aren't restricted by convention, but challenged by it. People who fit perfectly at SCVi, because it is the "why" that makes us successful.

A note about our hiring process: We take applications year-round and are always looking for why-sayers with a flexible mindset that would be a great addition to our team. Even if you have a credential, some of the noncredentialed positions are a great way to get your foot in the door. Many current teachers have become full-time taking this route. During the months before the school year starts, we are looking more actively than others. However, it's always a good time to submit your résumé; just please follow up throughout the year.

In order to be offered a full-time teaching position at SCVi, teachers will need to go through one of our hiring events held in the months of January - June. This is a full-day, interactive job interview that involves multiple SCVi stakeholders. After an initial paper screening process, we will invite approximately nine candidates to come to Bonanza Day in the spring on approximately four different occasions. These candidates will be teachers from a range of different content areas and possibly for other nearby partner schools. The day will begin with mingling with staff. Next, the candidates gather in a room for an orientation to the SCVi philosophy and culture. All candidates will teach a 45-minute to one-hour class in an SCVi classroom appropriate to their content area. This can be what the students are already studying or something they are passionate about. After the lesson, students and current staff fill out feedback forms on the candidate. In addition to teaching, the candidates spend time observing in the classrooms on a school tour.  During the rotations, the candidates interview with groups of parents and students informally in the Village. Toward the end of the day, candidates will gather in a classroom to design projects with groups from the hiring bonanza and current staff. Since we value collaboration and adult learning, we want to see how well candidates can work with other adults. To culminate the day-long interview process, teams will present their projects to the SCVi family.

Decisions are generally made by July 1.
