Qualifications for Hiring: Theological Criteria: Teachers, along with parents, students, and school board voting members, are to confess and hold to Sequitur’s statement of faith, its mission statement, and its organizational policies and procedures as explained in the Academy Handbook. Likewise, the teacher is to be a member in good standing at a local, Christian church.
Academic Criteria: It is preferable, though not required, that the teacher hold, be pursuing, or have an academic reputation equivalent to a Bachelor’s, Master’s, or Doctorate degree in a relevant field of study. The teacher is to show a respectable capacity to work with colleagues, set and implement curricula, teach with order and decorum, and uphold the principles of a classical Christian education.
Other Responsibilities: The teacher is to fulfill the following: 1) attend faculty meetings once a month, 2) find opportunities to attend student events and support our families in their local endeavors, 3) look for opportunities to promote Sequitur’s mission and vision, and 4) attend all school events directly related to the teacher’s role as classroom instructor (approximately three events per semester). It is mandatory teachers attend the teacher training in early August.
Evaluation System: The mid-year and end-of-the-year personal evaluation, completed and submitted by the teacher, along with various in-class observations by board members and school administration, as well as impromptu meetings with school administration, will help measure teacher success and competency.
Pay and Benefits: Pay will be determined and offered after a formal interview and candidate evaluation. Positions do not include health or retirement benefits.
