The Regional Instructional Specialist (RIS) serves three primary roles as a member of the Catapult Schools ACI Team* (Assessment, Curriculum, & Instruction). The goal of the Catapult Schools ACI Team is to create MODEL programs company-wide based on the latest research-based “best practices” for assessment, curriculum, and instruction. The Regional Instructional Specialist reports directly to the Senior Vice-President Academics. Regional Vice-Presidents and Regional Directors work in coordination with the RIS to determine ACI priorities for individual schools.
In addition to acting in this capacity, the Regional Instructional Specialist will conduct regular on-site school visits to provide guidance on a variety of resources and ensure quality control and implementation. Monitoring implementation of the ACI Compliance Tool; ABLE Lesson/Unit Plan; 4-Step Student Plans; Top 15 Classroom Essentials/Quality Standards; Daily Plans; Quarterly Performance Standards; Monthly IEP Progress Tracking; and Individual School Plans (ISPs) are examples of metrics utilized to ensure uniform quality programs across all schools.
Applicants must have a degree and current certification in special education. Experience in the Special Education Schools model and process is preferred but not required.
