ACE strategically recruits students and families to its three middle schools and one high school that feel disengaged and are falling behind academically. As a result, 91% of our students are considered low-income, 20% of students qualify for special education services, and 56% are classified as English Learners.Our mission demands an equity mindset - we recruit, develop and promote diverse staff. As a result, 74% of our teachers and 70% of our leaders identify as people of color. After 12 years, our model is seeing results: 89% of the ACE High School seniors from 2016 to 2021 have met the eligibility requirements for CSU/UC compared with 35% across the state.Position SummaryWe are looking for exceptional Special Education educators to join our team!
