Special Education Inclusion Teacher for students with mild to moderate disabilities


Coliseum College Prep Academy in Oakland Unified School District is recruiting caring, dedicated teachers looking to build their skills and grow as educators to support our inclusion program for students with mild/moderate disabilities.

CCPA is hiring a Special Education inclusion/resource teacher for the 2022-2023 school year. You would join a team of Special Education teachers supporting students with mild to moderate learning differences in general education inclusion and resource placements. This position involves primarily supporting students in general education classrooms and in small groups outside of class. CCPA has a strong SpEd department and a culture of inclusion and supporting all students to success. The majority of services are provided in classes to students through co-teaching with a general education teacher. Additionally, some of our Special Education teachers teach reading intervention as part of our tiered reading intervention program.

CCPA's 7 year program allows us to prepare all of our graduates for entry to four year

colleges- UCs and CSUs. The stability of our program across middle and high school

allows us to build powerful relationships with students and families to support a positive

school culture and high student achievement. CCPA is a small school in its sixteenth year in Oakland Unified School District. Coliseum Prep Academy is a complex community that has the shared values of Community, Curiosity, Persistence, and Achievement. We utilize our strong community to support students in being curious about the world around them and persisting through challenges in order to achieve their unique goals. Our school program will meet each learner's unique needs, value their passions and interests, connect their learning to the real world, and require students to demonstrate what they know and are able to do.

CCPA is a full service community school coordinating services from across our

community to meet the needs of our students and families. This includes an on-site health clinic, mental health services, a compulsory after school program including enrichment programs, and a robust Family Resource Center (FRC). Through our FRC we coordinate a full range of supports for families. We have support for basic needs such as a food bank, clothes closet, legal and tax services. The FRC also builds parents' college knowledge and ability to academically support their child to success in college. CCPA also supports students in the classroom with a strong school culture built to teach social emotional skills and value to students.

Concurrently, CCPA has an innovative and challenging academic program to

engage students in their learning and make them competitive college applicants and

students. At the high school level, all CCPA students participate in the Community Leadership and Innovation Pathway, which includes robust social justice education coupled with courses in computer science. Students also participate in our innovative Internship and Early College Enrollment Program. This work coupled with the increasing number of Advanced Placement courses and high academic expectations has elevated our students' engagement in their own education and readiness for college.

CCPA students in special education are fully immersed in all aspects of our program. We have worked to fully include all of our special education students across the board from core classes and electives, to pathway and college and career readiness. Our program implements a blend of co-teaching and co-planning between special education and general education teachers, push-in support across disciplines, intensive support classes, and academic support through pullouts.

OUSD is Hiring Certificated Educators for 2022-23 Now

More than ever, we appreciate our Oakland educators. We can agree that we have experienced an unprecedented year in education as our students, communities and families have returned to in-person school. We are continuously learning that we are stronger together - Oakland educators are passionate, equity-focused, and resilient. Oakland Unified is an incredible place to build and develop your career in service of our core values: students first, joy, equity, excellence, integrity, and cultural responsiveness.

Our Mission and Vision

The Oakland Unified School District's mission is to build a Full Service Community District focused on high academic achievement while serving the whole child, eliminating inequity, and providing each child with excellent teachers, every day.

Our vision is that all OUSD students will find joy in their academic experience while graduating with the skills to ensure they are caring, competent, fully-informed, critical thinkers who are prepared for college, career, and community success.

Our Strategic Plan

The four key initiatives of our current district wide strategic plan are:
  • Ensuring Strong Third Grader Readers (Catalyze citywide effort to guarantee literacy for all third graders)
  • Supporting Powerful Graduates (Develop essential skills to secure post secondary success),
  • Creating Inspiring Schools (Redesign schools to be places of joy, inclusion and beauty)
  • Growing a Diverse and Stable Staff (Attract and retain staff reflective of Oakland's rich diversity)

We are seeking educators who believe that:
  • Building and maintaining caring relationships with students and families is a key part of the foundation of teaching;
  • Maintaining high expectations for all students is best accomplished through a persistent asset-based lens of what students can do;
  • Your actions can directly lead to creating more equitable conditions in public schools;
  • Your work is most effective in collaboration with colleagues, families, and students;
  • Developing as an anti-racist educator requires investing time in self-reflection, listening and incorporating feedback from students, their families, other educators, and school leaders and is critical to your growth as an educator and leader.
  • Working for racial justice requires close attention to educational systems and policies, and working to eliminate racism is critical to the educational success of all students.
