Rooted School Vancouver
Contact: Sandra Yokley, Director of Operations for RSV- email@example.com
Rooted School Vancouver (RSV) is a free public charter high school opening this fall 2023 in Vancouver, Washington that aims to disrupt the cycle of poverty by reimagining education and providing students with paths to financial freedom.
Rooted School Vancouver will be the third public school to open in the Rooted School network and the first in Washington state. Southwest Washington projects more than 1,600 job openings in IT and STEM every year without enough local talent to meet that growth. Rooted Vancouver seeks to change that by offering a broad range of Industry Based Credentials and work-based learning opportunities for students during high school. It is the goal of RSV that every student graduates with a college acceptance letter in one hand and a job offer in the other.
We are in the process of hiring teachers for our 2023-2034 school year. These teachers will be founding members of the Rooted School Vancouver team and will work directly with our Founding School Leader, Board, and other members of our statewide and national network to help spearhead Rooted School’s launch in Vancouver, Washington by Fall 2023.
Students who are recently graduated or expect to graduate this spring with a post-baccalaureate secondary teacher certification and/or a Master’s degree in education, and believe they would be interested in a founding teaching position at Rooted School Vancouver, please have them visit our website (https://www.rootedschoolvancouver.org) for more information on our school, open positions and application process.
