Apply to be a Literacy Coach for the 2021-22 School Year

As part of our Early Literacy Strategic Plan, Jefferson Parish Schools is actively seeking to hire multiple Literacy Coaches for the 2021-22 school year. The Literacy Coach is embedded on campus and leads the development and improvement for 10-12 teachers via training, observations, model lessons, feedback conversations, data analysis and more. The Literacy Coach serves as the literacy content expert and provides support on curriculum, high-quality interactions, and the science of teaching reading. Schools to receive these Literacy Coach positions will be prioritized based on students’ needs. Please click here for a complete job description.

Successful candidates will be detail-oriented, independent self-starters who demonstrate an unwavering commitment to raising student achievement and who have a record of high performance in challenging situations. 

JP Schools will utilize Elementary and Secondary School Emergency Relief (ESSER) funds to pay the salaries of Literacy Coaches. Since the ESSER funding was not approved until after the voluntary transfer process ended, the district will extend voluntary transfers to employees seeking a Literacy Coach position funded by ESSER.

If you have experience as a K-5 ELA teacher, knowledge of the CKLA curriculum and proven results when working with struggling readers, please consider applying.
