On March 13, 2012, fifteen Detroit Public Schools were the first of a total of 100 that will be assigned to the EAA of Michigan. Of the fifteen schools, nine are K-8, and six are high schools. The schools will be pioneering an exciting new form of student-centered learning that will be mastery-based. Also, students will not necessarily be organized along traditional age and grade bands. Recognizing that teachers are our greatest assets, they will be given greater autonomy over curriculum and assessment design and will be expected to innovate and lead instructional programs at the classroom and school level.

To that end, the EAA is seeking teachers who are passionate about going above and beyond the call of duty for Detroit’s students. We seek innovators in the classrooms who welcome professional development and competitive pay for increased responsibility and accountability. In the EAA, teachers will be key in the transformation of schools.
